VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Martin St. Louis scored his first goal with the Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist made 34 saves Tuesday and New York defeated the Vancouver Canucks 3-1.

Daniel Carcillo and Benoit Pouliot had the other goals for New York, which has won seven of its past eight games and sits comfortably in an Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Ryan Kesler scored for Vancouver, and Eddie Lack finished with 28 saves as the Canucks’ small postseason hopes took another hit.

Vancouver entered play five points back of the final wild-card berth in the West and has just five games remaining on its schedule.

Tuesday’s game marked the regular-season return of Rangers coach Alain Vigneault to Rogers Arena. Vigneault coached in Vancouver for seven seasons, winning six division titles and leading the Canucks within a victory of the 2011 Stanley Cup.
