Buffalo Sabres Fall in New York Against The Rangers
The Buffalo Sabres have the talent on the roster, but they have a way to go to beat the big boys. It's the little mistakes that continue to kill them and it happened again Monday night in New York against the Rangers. The Sabres twice came back to tie the game, but three goals on four shots at the beginning of the third period propelled the Rangers a 6-3 win.
Brian Gionta tied it up at 1-1 in the first period and Zemgus Girgensons scored back to back goals 1:13 apart in the third period to tie it 3-3, but the Rangers capitalized on some poor puck management by the Sabres to score the go-ahead goal. The Rangers finished it off with a power play goal and an empty-netter.
It's the eighth straight win for the Rangers over the Sabres. Buffalo plays one more game before the All Star break. The Sabres play in Ottawa on Tuesday night.
