Recap: NY Rangers vs. Los Angeles

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Ben Scrivens recorded a second consecutive shutout with 37 saves and the Los Angeles Kings edged the New York Rangers, 1-0, at Madison Square Garden.

"He just had to be solid," Kings head coach Darryl Sutter said of Scrivens.

Scrivens has won all three of his starts since starting goaltender Jonathan Quick went down with a groin injury.

Tyler Toffoli staked the backup to a lead 1:23 into the second period with a shot from the right point that deflected off the skate of Rangers defenseman Anton Stralman.

It was the only blemish for an otherwise terrific night for Henrik Lundqvist, who made 29 saves and watched his offense waste five power-play opportunities.

The Kings were whistled for three penalties in a 3:10 span midway through the second period, but killed off two 5-on-3s to keep their 1-0 lead.

"We had about 50 seconds of 5-on-3s out there and we didn't connect, so our execution might have been a little bit off," Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault said.

New York failed to capitalize on Dustin Brown's cross-checking penalty in the third and had a goal waived off with 2:41 remaining when Dominic Moore kicked in the would-be equalizer.
