Today's New York Rangers notes.

The Rangers five-game road winning streak came to an end Monday night, as the Lightning defeated the Rangers 5-0. Despite outshooting the Lightning 37-25, the Rangers found themselves on the wrong end a lopsided game.

Two big mistakes in the first period resulted in two Tampa Bay goals, and the Rangers found themselves down a pair after 20 minutes. Things didn't get much better for the Rangers as the game went on, and Henrik Lundqvist got pulled after two periods. Some recaps of last night's action.
