Vokoun, Pens blank Rangers
NEW YORK – Tomas Vokoun stopped 28 shots for his 49th NHL shutout, and the Pittsburgh Penguins scored on the first shot of the first and third periods in a 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday night.
Evgeni Malkin gave the Penguins the lead 1:24 in, James Neal added a power-play goal 28 seconds into the third – after another costly too many men on the ice penalty for the Rangers – and Simon Despres netted his second NHL goal to give Pittsburgh (4-3) its second win in five games.
Malkin added an assist, as did captain Sidney Crosby, on Neal’s goal. Pittsburgh is winless at home but 4-1 on the road. The Penguins have two wins in New York this season, one fewer than the host Rangers (3-4), who had won three of four overall.
