It also gave Lundqvist his 389th career win, tying him with Dominik Hasek for the most by a European-born goaltender.He was an inspiration to me growing up, Lundqvist said about the feat. He was the first guy I saw play paddle down. I grew up watching him, so this special for sure.Lundqvist has been stellar since serving as the backup to Antti Raanta, who started four straight games from Dec. 8-13. In three games since, Lundqvist is 3-0-0 with a 0.98 goals against average and a .967 save percentage. He also made several big stops on Sunday, which included two saves on New Jersey breakaways, to fend off the Devils.Hank is such a competitor. He works so hard, Rangers center Derek Stepan said. Hes an absolute workhorse -- a great teammate. And I expected nothing less from him.New York coach Alain Vigneault isnt surprised by Lundqvists recent play.This is the start of my fourth year. As soon as I got here, I knew his preparation and his work ethic in practice, Vigneault said. Thats why he was one of the best goaltenders in the league at that time, and he continues to be. He just works at his game, hes really focused, and hes a great person.Mats Zuccarello also scored in the shootout, and Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan had goals in regulation.PA Parenteau and Miles Wood scored and Cory Schneider stopped 24 shots as the Devils lost their sixth straight. Michael Cammalleri had a shootout goal.Things are going to happen in hockey games, Cammalleri said. We arent hiding from the fact that were on a losing streak and we have to get out of it.Parenteau broke a scoreless tie early in the second with his seventh goal of the season and the Devils on the power play. Parenteau pushed a loose puck underneath Lundqvist and off the post, but the Rangers goalie inadvertently hit the puck into the net as he tried to cover it up.The Rangers upped the pressure in the third and after several chances that were stopped by Schneider. New York finally found the back of the net as Mats Zuccarello quickly swung the puck from behind the net to Kreider, who tapped the puck in to even the score at 8:10.The Devils quickly responded to recapture the lead with 9:28 left in the third. Adam Henrique forced Dan Girardi to turn over the puck behind the Rangers net, fought off two Rangers players and sent the puck to Wood, who got a quick shot off in front of the net to give the Devils the 2-1 lead.However the Rangers kept pressing and tied it with 1:13 left in regulation as Stepan redirected the puck past Schneider.Its not the result we wanted so thats a little frustrating and disappointing, Schneider said. I thought our defending was good here against a really offensive team, but again at the end of the day its the two points that matter.Sunday was the final time the Devils will play at Madison Square Garden this season and the loss extended their struggles away from Prudential Center. New Jersey is now 4-11-5 on the road and looking snap their six game skid.Game notes Forwards Jacob Josefson, Luke Gazdic and Devante Smith-Pelly were healthy scratches for New Jersey. .

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Yonder Alonso thought he cost the Oakland Athletics a game with his glove but then made up for it with his bat.Alonso hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the 10th inning to lead the As to an 8-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night, helping Oakland avoid a three-game sweep and snap a five-game losing streak.Mike Morin (2-2) got the first two outs of the 10th inning before the As scored twice. Danny Valencia and Tyler Ladendorf singled before Alonsos double to center scored Valencia with the go-ahead run. Marcus Semien followed with an RBI single.I prayed to every God there is I would get another opportunity to help my team, Alsono said.Ryan Dull pitched a scoreless 10th to get his second save.Alonsos clutch hitting came after an error in the eighth that allowed the Angels to tie it at 6-all.Hes swinging the bat really good right now, As manager Bob Melvin said. I think when something transpires like that, you cant wait to get in a position where you can go help your team and he definitely did that.Jefry Marte and Jett Bandy hit back-to-back singles off John Axford to start the eighth and pinch-hitter Mike Trout drew a walk to load the bases. Johnny Giavotella sent a grounder to first base that Alonso bobbled, allowing Giavotella to reach safely and Marte to beat the throw home and tie the game.Its a hard-hit ball from a righty. You dont see many balls as first baseman hit down there like that, Melvin said. It spun in weird and came out of his glove but (Marte) got a good break from third and just barely beat the tag.Ryan Madson (4-4) then came in for Axford and retired Yunel Escobar and Kole Calhoun.Melvin was particularly happy with how Zach Neal, Dull and Madson performed out of the bullpen, saying he hadnt planned on using Madson in a situation like that or using Dull at all after he had pitched in Wednesdays game.(Dull) always makes himself available, but I hadnt planned on using him, Melvin said. Zach Neal was huge for us today. We dont get in the position we were in later in the game if not for Zach, and then Ryan Madson coming into a situation hes not used to coming into. In a tie game like that, leaving a guy on third with less than two outs, so there were a lot of guys who contributed. This was a total team win.Valencia, Max Muncy and Ryon Healy all homered for Oakland.Tied at 5-all in the top of tthe seventh, Jhoulys Chacin walked Jake Smolinski and Bruce Maxwell to start the inning. Womens Spurs Jerseys. Coco Crisps one-out double off the wall in right-center drove in Smolinksi to put the As ahead.With his family visiting from South Korean, Ji-Man Choi homered twice off of Jesse Hahn, belting a solo home run in the second inning and a three-run shot that curled around the right-field foul pole in the third inning that gave the Angels a 5-2 lead. He nearly had a third home run in the fifth inning but Crisp reached into the left field stands to make the catch.It was not only Chois first multi-homer game of his major league career, but it was also his first multi-hit game.I really wanted a multi-hit game because I had never had one, Choi said through an interpreter. This was my first major league multi-hit game, so its very crazy to do it in front of my family.The As tied the score in the fourth with three runs off Ricky Nolasco.In his first start since being traded from the Minnesota Twins on Monday, Nolasco, who grew up 50 miles away from Angel Stadium in Rialto, gave up five earned runs and six hits, including the three solo home runs.After being recalled earlier in the day to make the start, Hahn gave up five earned on seven hits in four innings for Oakland.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: RHP Henderson Alvarez was checked for thoracic outlet syndrome this week but a specialist, Dr. Greg Pearl, found no evidence of the condition.
