Rangers End Two-Game Losing Streak With 3-2 Win Over Sabres

Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Ryan Callahan scored a goal in overtime as the New York Rangers broke a two-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

Callahan recorded his 100th National Hockey League goal and career-high 24th of the season at two minutes, 59 seconds into overtime last night at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

“It’s something to look back on at the end of the year -- to say that it’s nice that you got your 100th goal and career high,” Callahan said. “It’s nice to enjoy tonight but come Monday it’s another game.”

Drew Stafford gave the Sabres a 1-0 lead with his first of two goals in the first period. Carl Hagelin tied it at 1-1 in the second period.

Stafford got his second goal 44 seconds into the third period for a 2-1 Sabres lead. Marian Gaborik scored five minutes later to force the game into overtime.

“We played much better in the little areas of the ice,” coach John Tortorella said. “When we tied it up, for some reason they ended up taking the momentum. That’s part of the game that wasn’t good. To go down early in the third period, you don’t want to script it this way as far as a win, but it turns out to be a good way to win. We were much better.”

New York (39-15-6) leads the Eastern Conference with 84 points and is two points behind league-leading Vancouver. Buffalo (27-27-8) is 11th in the conference with 62 points, six points below the postseason cutoff.
