NHL ROUNDUP Monday's games



Rangers 6, Bruins 1
BOSTON -- Petr Prucha scored two goals and assisted on another, and linemates Matt Cullen and Jed Ortmeyer also had three points. Brendan Shanahan scored his team-leading 25th goal on a penalty shot in the third period for the Rangers, who have won two straight road games following the All-Star break. New York has beaten Boston six consecutive times, including twice this month. The Rangers were whistled for only four penalties, but registered two short-handed goals -- one by Cullen, and Shanahan's penalty-shot tally that made it 5-1. Michael Nylander closed the scoring with a power-play tally at 7:39. The Bruins have lost three straight -- scoring just two goals -- and are 3-9-1 in their last 13 games. Patrice Bergeron got Boston even at 1 with a power-play goal in the first period. Cullen added two assists, and Ortmeyer had three as the Rangers' third line dominated the first two periods. Defenseman Michal Rozsival scored in the second, assisted by Prucha and Cullen. Ortmeyer came into the game with three points (one goal) in nine games, following a 40-game absence because of a pulmonary embolism. He scored a penalty-shot goal in the Rangers' 3-1 win over Boston on Jan. 13.
Canadiens 3, Senators 1
MONTREAL -- Sheldon Souray, Mark Streit and Tomas Plekanec scored 2:24 apart in the second period to lead Montreal over Ottawa. Souray tied it 1-1 with his 17th goal on a power play 10:55 into the second. Streit gave Montreal the lead when he beat Ray Emery through the legs on a breakaway at 12:01. Plekanec scored his 10th at 13:19, a short-handed effort that put the Canadiens up by two. Montreal went on to end Ottawa's two-game winning streak. On the night the Canadiens retired Hall of Fame goalie Ken Dryden's No. 29, current Montreal backup David Aebischer stopped 26 straight shots. He was beaten by defenseman Chris Phillips' high floater from the blue line just 52 seconds in on Ottawa's first shot, then was perfect the rest of the way.
