Thursday's HIGHLIGHTS

Rangers 2, Sabres 0: Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves in his 47th NHL shutout, and New York won its second straight and first at home.

Bruins 3, Ducks 2: Zdeno Chara scored the tying goal on a power play with under 3 minutes remaining in regulation and Jarome Iginla had the lone goal in a shootout to rally Boston to a home win.

Coyotes 5, Predators 4: Mikkel Boedker scored the lone shootout goal in the fifth round to lift Phoenix over visiting Nashville. Thomas Greiss made 36 saves and stopped all five shootout attempts for the Coyotes, who rallied from a 3-0 deficit.

Avalanche: Goalie Semyon Varlamov will be able to travel with the team while prosecutors consider whether he should be charged with assaulting his girlfriend. A judge said Varlamov could be released if he posted $5,000 bond and be allowed to travel with the team, but he was ordered to stay away from his girlfriend, among other restrictions. The girlfriend, Evgeniya Vavrinyuk, told investigators that Varlamov kicked her in the chest, knocking her down, and stomped on her chest as she lay on the ground in her apartment on Monday, according to an arrest affidavit.

Canadiens: Defenseman Alexei Emelin, 27, signed a four-year contract with Montreal. The deal is reportedly worth $16.4 million and takes effect in the 2014-15 season. Emelin has yet to play this season because of a knee injury.
