NEW YORK (AP) If a drubbing at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning was the wakeup call the New York Rangers really needed, they have gotten the message loud and clear.

Since a four-goal home loss to the Lightning last Monday, the Rangers have been suddenly stingy and haven't allowed a goal in back-to-back wins. Their latest triumph was a 5-0 rout of the NHL-leading Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night.

"You get a chance to play a team that has been going very good, you want to see how you stack up," said Martin St. Louis, who had a goal and assist. "You know it is a fast team, and we have to be sharp. I thought we were."
