New York

Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves for his 400th career win and the New York Rangers earned their fifth consecutive victory, beating the Colorado Avalanche 4-2 on Saturday night.

Lundqvist is the 12th goaltender in NHL history with at least 400 wins and the first European-born goaltender to reach the mark.

Lundqvist also is the third goaltender to get 400 wins with one franchise. The others are Martin Brodeur (Devils) and Tony Esposito (Blackhawks).

Lundqvist is 8-1 in his past nine appearances.

Defenseman Kevin Klein had two goals and Rick Nash had the go-ahead score for the Rangers, who swept their season-long four-game homestand and have won eight of 10 overall.

Kevin Hayes added an empty-net goal to clinch it.

Senators 3, Islanders 0: Craig Anderson made his first start in 69 days and turned aside 33 shots as Ottawa beat New York.

The shutout was the fourth of the season for Anderson in just 20 games and eighth of the season for the Senators.
