    Rangers Fall to Sabres 2-1 in Shootout

    The New York Rangers fell to the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 in a shootout on Friday night. The Rangers took a 1-0 lead in the 1st period on Paul Mara’s 4th goal of the season. The Sabres tied the game in the 2nd period on Derek Roy’s 15th goal of the season. After a scoreless 3rd period and overtime, the 2 teams faced off in a shootout. The only goal during the shootout came on the first shot – by Sabres Ales Kotalik. Sabres goalie Ryan Miller saved 43 of 44 Rangers shots on goal including 2 key stops in the shootout (Markus Naslund’s shootout shot missed the net), and was the key reason the Sabres were able to come away with the victory. The Rangers have not fared well against good teams of late, and now their hold on the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference is dwindling – they lead the New Jersey Devils by 3 points and each of the Sabres and Hurricanes by 5 points.

    Next up for the Rangers is Saturday night’s match-up against the Ottawa Senators – with only 32 points, the Senators are the 2nd-worst team in the Eastern Conference. Hopefully back-to-back games against the Senators and the Islanders (the worst team in the Eastern Conference) are just what the Rangers need to get back on track.
