NEW YORK (AP) - Brandon Dubinsky and defenseman Dan Girardi scored 2:04 apart during New York’s three-goal second period, and Henrik Lundqvist earned his 20th NHL shutout to lift the Rangers to a 3-0 victory that sent the New Jersey Devils to a season-high, fifth straight loss Monday night.

Ryan Callahan added his 21st goal for the Rangers, who bounced back from a disappointing 0-1-1 road trip and moved within a point of sixth-place Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference playoff race. New York also stretched its lead to four points over Florida, which is below the postseason cutoff.

There was no drama between Rangers agitator Sean Avery and Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, longtime adversaries.
