WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Henrik Lundqvist stopped 30 shots to tie the Rangers’ record for career wins, and Swedish countryman Carl Hagelin scored three goals to lift New York to a 4-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Friday night.
Lundqvist tied the mark of 301 wins with the Rangers, set by Stanley Cup-winner Mike Richter. Lundqvist will have a chance to break the record Sunday at home against San Jose.
Chris Kreider also scored for New York (36-28-4). The Rangers went 1-2 on a three-game trip, bouncing back from a 2-1 loss at Minnesota on Thursday. New York took a 1-0 lead on its third shot of the game.
Dustin Byfuglien and Andrew Ladd scored for the Jets (30-29-9), who have lost six straight and are fighting to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Jets failed to earn a point as they had in three of the previous five losses.
