Henrik Lundqvist stopped 30 shots and came within 1:53 of his second shutout in three games, and the New York Rangers stretched their season-best winning streak to five games with a 3-1 victory over Philadelphia last night.

The second-place Rangers moved three points ahead of third-place Philadelphia in the Metropolitan Division race by winning what could be a playoff preview. New York has eight games remaining, and the Flyers have 10 left.

Canucks 5, Wild 2

David Booth scored two unassisted goals and Eddie Lack made 29 saves to lead Vancouver over Minnesota.
