NEWARK, N.J., May 19 (UPI) -- Henrik Lundqvist turned aside all 36 shots he saw Saturday and the New York Rangers blanked New Jersey 3-0 to take an Eastern Conference Finals lead.

Lundqvist made 25 of his stops over the final two periods and turned in his second shutout in three contests to start the series, boosting the Rangers into a 2-1 advantage over the Devils.

The game remained scoreless until 3:19 into the third period, when Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi snapped a shot off a faceoff win past Devils goalie Martin Brodeur from the right circle.

Chris Kreider doubled New York's advantage less than 2 minutes later off assists from Ryan McDonagh and Ryan Callahan, and Callahan added an empty-netter with 2:13 left.

Brodeur stopped 19-of-21 shots for New Jersey, which look to bounce back at home in Monday's Game 4.
