Rangers Top Blackhawks in Thriller, 1-0



    Blackhawks left winger Daniel Carcillo chases Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein for the puck during Sunday's game in Chicago.

    Derick Brassard scored 32 seconds into overtime and Cam Talbot made 29 saves for his fifth shutout of the season in the New York Rangers' 1-0 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night.

    Brassard swooped in from left wing and fired a shot past Corey Crawford on the stick side after taking a cross-ice feed from Mats Zuccarello.

    The Rangers moved within a point of the first-place New York Islanders in the Metropolitan Division.

    Talbot was sharp in his 15th start in 16 games since No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist has been sidelined with a neck injury. Talbot has eight career shutouts.

    Crawford finished with 35 saves after stopping a career-high 46 shots Friday night in a 2-1 shootout win over Edmonton.
