Bruins Vs. Rangers Final Score: Boston Clinches Northeast Division Title With 2-1 Win

The Boston Bruins ended the New York Rangers' four-game winning streak on Sunday night, and in the process clinched the Northeast Division title with a 2-1 victory at Madison Square Garden. Tim Thomas was solid in net, turning back 33 of 34 shots faced.

Boston managed just 21 shots on net for the night. They beat Henrik Lundqvist twice in the second period to take a 2-1 lead, however. Dennis Seidenberg scored his fifth goal of the season on a slapshot at the blueline four minutes into the period, assisted by Zdeno Chara. Patrice Bergeron stuffed the puck in at the goal line on a powerplay for the game-winner at the 11:52 mark.

The Rangers struck first on the night when Marian Gaborik seized upon a long rebound into the neutral zone for a breakaway goal 4:33 into the game. They wouldn't find net again, however, despite five shots on goal each from Ryan Callahan and Marc Staal.
