Recap: Edmonton vs. NY Rangers

Edmonton, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Henrik Lundqvist faced only 16 shots in his fifth shutout of the season as the New York Rangers matched a season-high with their third win in a row, a 2-0 whitewash of the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.

Dan Girardi's goal 16:04 into the game stood up as the winner and Carl Hagelin added an empty-netter in the final minute for the Rangers.

New York went 2-0 for the weekend after trouncing Vancouver 5-1 on Saturday night to open a four-game road trip.

Lundqvist made five saves in the first and second period and stopped six shots in the third to wrap up his 55th career shutout.

"They stayed back and were waiting for us to make mistakes," Lundqvist said of Edmonton's strategy.

The Oilers have dropped four games in a row and 15 of their last 16 (1-11-4).

Ben Scrivens made 20 saves but Edmonton's offense remained stuck in a slump.

The Oilers have now scored two goals or fewer in seven consecutive games. They were shut out for the fourth time this season.

"It was a tough night to get anything going," Oilers head coach Dallas Akin said. "The Rangers were able to block a ton of shots and the game came to a standstill."

Girardi's second goal of the season went off an Edmonton defender in front of the crease after he fired the puck toward the net from the low right side.

Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello had the assists, with Nash setting up the goal on a pass from behind the net.
