Rangers Score Late, Shut Out Detroit

Mats Zuccarello broke up a scoreless duel between two Olympic goalies when he scored with 5:58 remaining, lifting the New York Rangers to a 1-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

Zuccarello floated a puck over Detroit’s Jimmy Howard when he drove to the net, putting New York’s 45th shot of the night into the net. That was enough for Henrik Lundqvist to earn his third shutout of the season and 48th in his NHL career.

Lundqvist, who made his sixth straight start, stopped 38 shots. Gustav Nyquist slipped a shot behind him with 44.5 seconds remaining, but Lundqvist reached back to cover the puck just before it crossed the line.

Howard made 47 saves.

The Red Wings were shut out for the second straight game, both times 1-0. Detroit, which hasn’t scored a power-play goal in six games in 2014, was beaten at Anaheim on Sunday.
