NEW YORK — How Swede it is.

The Senators closed out this five-game road trip with a 3-2 victory on Broadway on the strength of Jakob Silfverberg’s winner in the dying minutes and a 33-save performance by goalie Robin Lehner in his debut at Madison Square Garden.

Silfverberg, the Swedish rookie, helped his countryman Lehner live out a dream as he knocked off his boyhood idol Henrik Lundqvist in the Rangers net to halt a frustrating four-game losing skid.
