Rangers beat Capitals 4-2 for 7th straight win

NEW YORK (AP) Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers take a seven-game winning streak into the Christmas break.

They will need the rest after withstanding a frenetic third period to beat the Washington Capitals 4-2 on Tuesday night. Trailing 3-0, the Capitals fired 21 shots at Lundqvist in the final 20 minutes.

"It was perfect," Lundqvist deadpanned. "I have a lot of Christmas food here, so I needed a good workout in the third."
