Lundqvist Leads Rangers Past Hurricanes, 4-1

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Henrik Lundqvist made a season-high 48 saves, and the New York Rangers gave the Carolina Hurricanes their club-record-tying seventh straight home loss, 4-1 on Saturday night.

Derek Stepan and Ryan Callahan scored 31 seconds apart, and Rick Nash added a goal and an assist during the Rangers' three-goal second period. Brian Boyle added an empty-netter just before the buzzer.

New York has earned seven points during a 3-0-1 run to move into seventh place in the Eastern Conference. The Rangers are tied with the eighth-place New York Islanders, and more importantly lead ninth-place New Jersey by three points.

Carolina's Zac Dalpe, called up from Charlotte of the AHL earlier Saturday, scored with 10:33 left, but the Rangers killed two penalties after that.
