POST-GAME NOTES
\r\nRangers 1, Toronto 4

AT NYR
The way the Rangers had been playing defense, it seemed one goal might be enough for them on Saturday night against Toronto at MSG. When Jaromir Jagr gave the Blueshirts a 1-0 lead early in the second period, the Rangers held the driver's seat until the Leafs struck three times in just 8:31, ending Henrik Lundqvist's career-best shutout streak and propelling themselves to a 4-1 win.
