NEW YORK — Johan Hedberg was so busy during the game, he deserved the break he got in the shootout.

Hedberg made a career-best 46 saves and then was perfect in two shootout rounds to lift the Atlanta Thrashers to a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night.

Captain Ilya Kovalchuk and Slava Kozlov scored on the Thrashers’ only shootout shots against Henrik Lundqvist. Hedberg made a pad save on NHL-leading goal scorer Marian Gaborik in the first round and then watched the puck slide off the stick of Ales Kotalik before he could muster an attempt.

Making it rain; Rangers squash Jackets with 7-goal outburst

November 24, 2009

Gaborik had two goals and two assists

NEW YORK — Fiery coach John Tortorella had a calm, reassuring tone and message after the New York Rangers fell into an early two-goal hole.

He called timeout and told his club to relax. It was only two goals and there were still nearly 50 minutes remaining for a comeback against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Marian Gaborik got the offense going, the Rangers took the lead before the first period was over and they rolled to a 7-4 victory Monday night.
