LIGHTNING 1, RANGERS 0

Nikolai Khabibulin left the New York Rangers frustrated and scoreless.

That was only half the story Monday night.

Another injury to Eric Lindros left them concerned about the future.

Khabibulin stopped all 42 Rangers shots, 22 in the third period, in the Tampa Bay Lightning's 1-0 victory at Madison Square Garden. His seven shutouts this season leave him tied with Colorado's Patrick Roy for the NHL lead.

Lindros only played half the game because a second-period knee-on-knee collision with Tampa Bay defenseman Cory Sarich sent the Rangers center off with a sprained ligament in his right knee.

Lindros, scheduled to play in the All-Star game and Olympics next month, missed three December games because of a sprained right knee, and seven others from Dec. 29-Jan. 3 after his seventh career concussion. He is day to day.

"Sure it's frustrating," said Lindros, New York's third leading scorer. "It's back to the same routine. I had the examination during the second period and I'll go to the rink (Tuesday) and we'll take it from there."

The Rangers' fifth shutout this season snapped a three-game winning streak. They scored 19 goals in the three games, sparked largely by Lindros.

In other NHL games, it was Boston 2, Chicago 1; Phoenix 4, Atlanta 2; Anaheim 1, St. Louis 0; Calgary 3, Minnesota 2 in overtime; Dallas 4, Columbus 2; Detroit 1, Edmonton 1; Los Angeles 6, Colorado 4; and Vancouver 5, Nashville 1.

Vincent Lecavalier's breakaway goal 3:27 into the third helped the Lightning end a three-game losing streak. But it was Khabibulin who starred, earning his 28th career shutout.
