TAMPA, Fla. - Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves in his first start in four games, and Mats Zuccarello had a goal and two assists in the New York Rangers' 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night.

Lundqvist watched from the bench as backup Cam Talbot started the previous three games, winning two, after Lundqvist struggled through a 1-4-2 stretch.

Rick Nash, Chris Kreider and Benoit Pouliot also scored for the Rangers, who had three power-play goals. Ryan McDonagh and Derick Brassard had two assists each.

Tampa Bay got goals from Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat and Valtteri Filppula.

The Rangers went up 4-2 on second-period power-play goals by Kreider and Pouliot.
