Buffalo (18-3-2) at NY Rangers (13-9-1) 7:00 pm EST
NEW YORK (Ticker) - The New York Rangers are looking for a
season-best winning streak. They will have to do it against the
Eastern Conference's best team.
The Rangers will take on the first-place Buffalo Sabres at
Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
New York has not won four contests in a row since a seven-game
winning streak last season. However, the Sabres have lost only
one contest on the road this season on their way to the best
record in the conference (18-3-2), including a 10-game road
winning streak to start the campaign.
Henrik Lundqvist made 28 saves and raised his record to 11-7-0
for New York which has won five of six overtime contests.
Buffalo suffered a rare loss on Thursday against Montreal.
After defeating the Canadiens twice already this season, the
Sabres dropped a 2-1 decision in overtime. Goaltender Ryan
Miller turned away 28 shots and fell to 11-2-2 this season.
The Sabres have the previous two meetings against the Rangers
this season, outscoring their in-state rivals 11-7.
