POST-GAME NOTES
\r\nRangers 1, N.Y. Islanders 2

FLA AT NYR
Looking for a sixth consecutive victory on Monday night at Madison Square Garden, the Rangers came up just short, falling 2-1 to a determined Islanders team despite 22 saves from goaltender Henrik Lundqvist and a shorthanded tally by Michal Rozsival, who notched his team-leading seventh goal. The Blueshirts, still atop the Atlantic Division, play next at Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
