Howard, Red Wings edge Rangers

NEW YORK — Jimmy Howard made 32 saves to lead the Red Wings to a 2-1 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday night.

Thomas Vanek and Drew Miller scored for Detroit. After beginning the season with two straight losses, the Red Wings have won consecutive games.

New York had the better of play for wide stretches. The Rangers outshot Detroit 33-18 for the game and Howard had to make highlight reel stops to keep the Wings in the game.

New York led 1-0 as Mika Zibanejad redirected Ryan McDonagh's slap shot from the right point past Howard 1:09 into the game.

QUICK OUT 3 MONTHS: After weighing his options, injured Kings goalie Jonathan Quick had a procedure Tuesday that did not involve surgery, the team said. He is expected to miss about three months. Quick was injured in the season opener at San Jose a week ago. The injury is said to be in the same area as where Quick sustained a strained groin in 2013 and missed almost two months.
