Kings Vs. Rangers: Henrik Lundqvist Earns 200th Win In Shootout Victory Over L.A.

Alright, so it wasn't the prettiest of wins, but after things have gone for the New York Rangers lately, I think they'll take it. John Tortorella's club blew two different one goal leads to the Los Angeles Kings in the game, including a 3-2 lead with less than three minutes to go in the game, but two points in the shootout makes all that pain go away.

It was Henrik Lundqvist's 200th career win, but most importantly for the Rangers, Marian Gaborik scored his 17th of the season in the second period. They really need to get going, as Blueshirt Banter explained.

Marian Gaborik is starting to find himself now. His confidence is growing, he is shooting the puck more and now one finally went in for him. Look, he could only be heating up and if he could ultimately get to where he was last season, then that will be a tremendous offensive boost for this club at a crucial time of year. I am daring to put my belief in Gabby here, so I really hope he can keep this up.   

Meanwhile, the Kings aren't complaining either. Rob Scuderi's late third period goal got them a point in this one, and as a result, they're still without a regulation loss on this trip. 5-0-2. They have one game left on the East Coast before returning to Southern California to take on the Anaheim Ducks next Wednesday.
