Devils End Rangers’ Streak
New York — Dainius Zubrus netted the tiebreaking goal with 2:55 left, and Ryan Carter scored his first two goals of the season as the New Jersey Devils beat the Rangers 3-2 on Tuesday night and snapped New York’s three-game winning streak.
Zubrus put in a loose puck after his shot was blocked by defenseman Dan Girardi for his third goal. That was enough to give Martin Brodeur a third straight win.
Girardi had gotten the Rangers even at 2 when he scored his first of the season with 7:42 left. Girardi banked in a shot from the blue line off the skate of Devils defenseman Adam Larsson, who turned 21 on Tuesday.
Lightning 2, Canadiens 1 (so)
Montreal — Valtteri Filppula scored the only goal in the shootout and Tampa Bay topped Montreal in a shootout in its first game without Steven Stamkos.
