• Rangers 5 Tampa 0: New York took a different approach Friday night, relying on some of the “other” guys to score the goals. When it was over, Orr, Avery, Hollweg and Hossa had all lit the lamp and the Rangers had an easy win.

    Henrik Lundqvist’s 29 saves may be lost in all of this, but it shouldn’t be. He was great in net and apart from one shot that hit the pipe, shut down the entire Lightning offense.

    It was an entertaining night at The Garden as Orr and Hollweg dropped the gloves and the Rangers showed an effort that has been missing in recent games.

  • New Jersey 92 Boston 78: Winning against the Celtics isn’t what it used to be. Boston dropped its 17th-straight game as Vince Carter scored 21 and Jason Kidd dished 8 assists.
