NEW YORK (AP) -Brendan Shanahan ripped a shot past Martin Brodeur 30 seconds into overtime, breaking a scoreless tie and snapping the New Jersey Devils' nine-game winning streak in the New York Rangers' 1-0 victory Sunday.
New York crisply moved the puck in the New Jersey zone, and Shanahan teed up a pass from Scott Gomez in the slot and put the Rangers' 29th shot past Brodeur. It was the only shot in the extra session.
Henrik Lundqvist made 17 saves for his fifth shutout of the season. The Rangers snapped a three-game losing streak and improved to 4-0 against the Devils this season.
New Jersey hadn't lost four straight to the Rangers since a six-game skid during New York's run to the Stanley Cup title in the 1993-94 season. The Devils will have to settle for matching the third-best winning streak in franchise history, falling four short of tying the team mark.
