BOSTON - Henrik Lundqvist's return didn't exactly go as planned.
The desperate Boston Bruins took advantage of the New York Rangers' rusty veteran goaltender in his first game back from a neck injury after a 25-game absence, scoring three times in the first period en route to a much-needed 4-2 victory on Saturday at TD Garden.
"Tough start," said Lundqvist, who was sidelined because of a sprained blood vessel in his neck. "Obviously not the start I was looking for, or the team, this game."
