Rangers 5, Canadiens 0

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist stopped 21 shots as the New York Rangers easily handled the Montreal Canadiens 5-0.

The shutout was the 54th of Lundqvist's career and second straight for the Rangers -- backup Cam Talbot made 31 saves in a 2-0 win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday.

Five different players scored for New York (9-7-4), including Rick Nash, who netted his 14th goal of the season.

The league-leading Canadiens (16-5-1), who have 33 points in 23 games, had won eight of nine entering this game. (Editing by Peter Rutherford)
