NEW YORK (Ticker) - The New York Rangers hope to carry some
momentum from a convincing victory when they host star
goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff and the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.
The Rangers were reeling from three consecutive overtime losses
heading into their contest with the Florida Panthers on
But Jaromir Jagr tallied twice and rookie goalie Henrik
Lundqvist matched a season high with 38 saves to lift New York
to a 4-0 triumph.
Ville Nieminen scored a goal and assisted on another while
rookie Petr Prucha also tallied for the Rangers, who improved to
12-5-4 at home this season.
New York hopes to keep up its torrid offensive pace against a
Calgary squad which has won six of its last eight.
The Flames owned a two-goal lead over the Vancouver Canucks in
the third period Saturday but ended up squandering the advantage
and lost a 4-3 overtime decision.
Kiprusoff stopped 32 shots for Calgary, which yielded four
power-play goals in the contest.
