NEW YORK, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- Brendan Shanahan scored the only goal in the shootout Thursday, giving the New York Rangers a 2-1 victory over Atlanta.
The win added to a special night for the Rangers, who in ceremonies prior to the game retired the jersey No. 2 of former defenseman Brian Leetch.
Henrik Lundqvist had to make just 17 saves to record his second straight win. Atlanta lost its fifth in a row.
