Henrik Lundqvist made 13 saves for his NHL-leading eighth shutout as host New York prevailed 2-0 to send New Jersey to its third straight loss on Monday.

Carl Hagelin scored the deciding goal and assisted on Ryan Callahan’s empty-net tally for the Rangers, who boosted their lead in the Eastern Conference to nine points over the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins.

Hagelin got New York on the board with 3:01 left in the first period, coming up on the left doorstep and winning a scrum in front of the net to beat Martin Brodeur. Callahan and Dan Girardi recorded assists on the play

The second period turned into a much more physical battle, with the rivals combining for 11 penalties. Overall, the Rangers got the better of New Jersey in the trenches, recording 37 hits and blocking 16 shots in front of Lundqvist.

New York’s All-Star netminder has recorded three shutouts this month and has not allowed more than two goals in a game since Jan. 19.
