Niemi, Canadiens defeat Rangers 3-1 to snap 6-game skid

MONTREAL (AP) After weeks without a win, the Montreal Canadiens finally found a team they could beat in the struggling New York Rangers.

Antti Niemi made 31 saves and the Canadiens topped the Rangers 3-1 on Thursday night to snap their six-game losing streak.

Tomas Plekanec, Jeff Petry and Phillip Danault scored for Montreal (23-29-8), which won for the first time since Feb. 4 and avoided matching its longest skid of the season.
