2006_10_srangerslogo.jpg-Rangers 5, Stars 2: Matt Cullen scored two goals, including the go-ahead score 57 seconds into the second period as the Rangers rolled to their fifth straight win. They haven't lost since Dec. 3, when the Islanders took them down. With the Devils' loss, the Rangers lead the Atlantic Division by four points, and they're finally playing hockey like they did during their best stretches last year. Thursday's game was wide open, but the Rangers adapted. Henrik Lunqvist made 43 saves.

-Bruins 5, Devils 3: The Devils kept it close until the third period, but the Bruins got an early goal to break the tie and then a late empty-netter to close the deal. Normally, a loss ot a last-place team would be embarassing. But the Bruins are the best last-place team in hockey, and they're over .500. They are just four points behind the Devils.
