|BOSTON -- "The Star-Spangled Banner" played over Boylston Street in honour of an American winner of the Boston Marathon. Ben Simmons Jersey . One year after a bombing there killed three people and left more than 260 injured, Meb Keflezighi added Boston to a resume that includes the New York City Marathon title in 2009 and a silver medal in the 2004 Olympics. Running just two weeks before his 39th birthday, he had the names of the 2013 bombing victims on his bib. "At the end, I just kept thinking, Boston Strong. Boston Strong," he said. "I was thinking Give everything you have. If you get beat, thats it." Keflezighi completed the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to the finish on Boylston Street in Bostons Back Bay on Monday in a personal-best 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds. He held off Kenyas Wilson Chebet, who finished 11 seconds behind. Edmontons Tom McGrath was the top Canadian, finishing 101st in 2:30:24. Keflezighi went out early and built a big lead. But he was looking over his shoulder several times as Chebet closed the gap over the final two miles. After realizing he wouldnt be caught, Keflezighi raised his sunglasses, began pumping his right fist and made the sign of the cross. He broke into tears after crossing the finish line, then draped himself in the American flag. No U.S. runner had won the race since Lisa Larsen-Weidenbach took the womens title in 1985. The last American man to win was Greg Meyer in 1983. Meyer and Keflezighi embraced after the race. "Im blessed to be an American and God bless America and God bless Boston for this special day," Keflezighi said. Rita Jeptoo of Kenya successfully defended the womens title she said she could not enjoy a year ago. Jeptoo finished in a course-record 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds. She is a three-time Boston Marathon champion, having also won in 2006. "I came here to support the people in Boston and show them that we are here together," she said. "I decided to support them and show them we are here together." Jeptoo broke away from a group of five runners at the 23-mile mark. Buzunesh Deba of Ethiopia finished second in 2:19:59. Countrywoman Mare Dibaba was third at 2:19:52. All three women came in under the previous course record. Lanni Marchant of London, Ont., was the top Canadian in 14th. American Shalane Flanagan, who went to high school in nearby Marblehead, finished seventh after leading for more than half the race. She gambled by setting the early pace, but fell back on the Newton Hills about 21 miles into the race. "It does mean a lot to be that my city was proud of me," she said. "Im proud of how I ran. I dont wish I was it was easier. I wish I was better." After breaking a 27-year American drought at the New York marathon, Keflezighi contemplated retiring after the 2012 NYC Marathon. But that race was cancelled because of Superstorm Sandy, and he pulled out of the Boston Marathon last April because of injury. He watched the race from the stands at the finish line, but said he left about five minutes before the bombs went off. He was the first American to medal in an Olympic marathon since Frank Shorter won gold in 1972 and silver in 1976. His 2009 New York victory broke a 27-year American drought there. Another American, Tatyana McFadden, celebrated her 25th birthday Monday by winning the womens wheelchair race for the second straight year. She was timed in in 1 hour, 35 minutes, 6 seconds. McFadden was born in Russia and lived in an orphanage as a child before starring at the University of Illinois. She also won the 2013 NYC Marathon womens wheelchair race after taking the titles in Boston, London and Chicago last year. Ernst van Dyk of South Africa won the mens wheelchair division for a record 10th time. The 41-year-old crossed in 1 hour, 20 minutes, 36 seconds. Van Dyk holds the record for most all-categories Boston Marathon wins. This was his first win at this race since 2010. Last years mens champion, Lelisa Desisa, did not finish this years race, and had to be picked up by a van about 21 miles into the event. Marathon officials said 35,755 runners registered for the race, with 32,408 unofficial starters. The field included just less than 5,000 runners who were not able to finish last year and accepted invitations to return this year.

The star-studded blue carpet and a full house of their fans at a completely refurbished Madison Square Garden were there Monday night for the Rangers home opener. All that was missing was New Yorks offence. Peter Budaj made 27 saves for his 11th career NHL shutout, and Tomas Plekanec and Alex Galchenyuk provided the scoring as the Canadiens spoiled the Rangers long-awaited homecoming with a 2-0 victory. "I think we did a lot of good things," said Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who made 25 saves after a two-game injury absence. "We just hoped for an early goal for us to get the energy and confidence and get the building going. "It was a disappointing loss, but it was great to be back." Lundqvist was outshined by Budaj, the Canadiens 31-year-old backup to Carey Price. Budaj was at the top of his game despite playing for only the second time this season and first since Oct. 10 at Edmonton when he stopped 27 of 28 shots in a win. Plekanec scored the go-ahead goal on a power play in the second period. Budaj made it stand up for Montreal (7-5), which had lost three of four since a four-game winning streak. "Our guys were able to keep our ground and tried to box the players out so I can see the pucks," Budaj said. "When I didnt see them, they blocked the shots. When I saw the puck, I was able to make the save." The Canadiens blocked 28 shots. "All our D and forwards were doing the little things right," Budaj said. "It does help tremendously when the team in front of you plays so well and blocks shots." Galchenyuk scored his second of the season with 2:51 left with a goal that stood up to a video review. It was scored just moments after Budaj blocked an in-close chance for Mats Zuccarello. "If thats not a kick, I dont know what a kick is," the aggravated Lundqvist said. "Seriously, there needs to be some sort of consistency in the calls. "Its just a frustrating goal there that kind of kills the whole game. It would be very interesting to hear their explanation for it just to know moving forward what the rule really is." New York ended its 3-6 trip with a stirring 3-2 overtime win at Detroit on Saturday. But even with a healthy Lundqvist, the Rangers couldnt build off that momentum. "Guys were so excited. There was a definite energy in the room," forward Chris Kreider said. "The effort was there -- the same effort as Detroit, if not more. We learned from that game and we got better but we didnt get the result we wanted. So go back to the drawing board." Budaj turned aside a quick, hard drive by Kreider by blocking the shhot with his glove and deflecting it off the crossbar in the first period. Custom Philadelphia 76ers Jerseys. "I felt pretty solid," Budaj said. "I got a little lucky there at the beginning. I was able to make the save, and it hit the crossbar. You always need a little bit of luck." Kreider was still shaking his head after the game about his missed opportunity. "What net didnt I see? It was wide open," he said after a deep exhaled breath. "Its just another one Ive got to have." Jesper Fast also took two whacks at the puck while stationed at the right post in the closing minutes of the second period without success. Budajs best stop was perhaps 6 minutes into the third period, when the teams were skating 4-on-4 after interference calls 21 seconds apart. J.T. Miller had a partial breakaway in the Montreal zone and fired a drive that Budaj stopped with his left arm. Miller was denied again by Budaj midway through the third with a hard shot from the right of the crease. Plekanec made it 1-0 scored with 3:26 left in the second period. With Brian Boyle serving a roughing penalty, Montreal used a quick three-man passing play to set up Plekanecs team-leading sixth goal. Brian Gionta moved the puck to Michael Bournival, who made a pass to Plekanec, who came in alone on Lundqvist. Plekanec went past Rangers defenceman Anton Stralman, skated in on his forehand and shifted the puck to his backhand before depositing a shot behind Lundqvist. "That defenceman, I dont think he made such a great play," Plekanec said. "He kind of opened that lane for me to go to the net." Both teams recorded seven shots in the first period. The Rangers had a 14-11 edge in the second, but couldnt get a puck past Budaj. That has been a common theme for the road-weary Rangers, who were shut out twice during their road trip and managed only 15 goals. Lundqvist showed no signs of injury in his first game back following a week of limited action as he recovered from an undisclosed ailment. He moved well and seemed sharp on most of Montreals chances. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said he decided on a goalie for Tuesdays game at the Islanders, but didnt reveal his choice. NOTES: The Rangers sent Fast to Hartford of the AHL after the game. Injured forward Carl Hagelin is expected to join the lineup Tuesday. ... Budaj improved to 3-1 in four career games against New York. His previous shutout was Feb. 18 against Carolina. ... Gionta, who had only two penalty minutes in his first 10 games, was called for three penalties in the first two periods. ... Kreider was called for interference despite not touching two Canadiens who skated into each other. That negated a breakaway chance for Derick Brassard. ... New York was 0 for 5 on the power play.
