Buffalo completes season sweep of Rangers

Buffalo completes season sweep of Rangers

Daniel Briere scored the lone goal in the shootout, Ryan Miller made 36 saves, including six in overtime, and Brian Campbell had a goal and an assist as the Buffalo Sabres beat the New York Rangers 4-3 in the NHL on Friday.
Jochen Hecht and Chris Drury also scored for the Sabres.
The Sabres swept the four-game season series from the Rangers, and became the fifth team in NHL history to accumulate at least 20 victories through 25 games, the first since Ottawa won 21 of its first 25 last season.
Three of the four games between the two teams went to overtime.
Michal Rozsival, Martin Straka and Michael Nylander scored for the Rangers, who lost their third straight, all in overtime.
Red Wings 3, Wild 0
At St. Paul, Minnesota, Dominik Hasek needed just 20 saves to record his 72nd career shutout in Detroit's victory over banged-up Minnesota.
Dan Cleary, Niklas Lidstrom and Mikael Samuelsson scored against the Wild, who were shut out for the first time since November 2005, a span of 93 games that was the second-longest streak in the NHL behind Detroit's 144.
The Wild lost for the 11th time in 15 games and have been in a free fall since starting the season a franchise-best 6-1. Injuries have crippled them over the last month, with high-flying winger Marian Gaborik missing his 18th straight game with a groin injury.
Manny Fernandez made 20 saves for the Wild and fell to 1-8 in his last 11 starts after beginning the season 8-1.
Devils 5, Penguins 2
At East Rutherford, New Jersey, checking forward Jay Pandolfo capitalized on a bad night by Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury to score the tie-breaking goal and New Jersey Devils snapped a four-game losing streak.
Jamie Langenbrunner, Patrik Elias, Travis Zajac and Brian Gionta also scored as goal-starved New Jersey avoided its longest winless streak since a seven-game skid (0-2-5) in 2001. They also enjoyed their return to the Meadowlands, where they are 9-1-1 this season.
While Martin Brodeur made 23 saves in handing Pittsburgh its fourth loss in five games, he gave up soft goals to Erik Christensen and Evgeni Malkin in the early minutes of the first and second periods, respectively.
Blackhawks 5, Blues 2
At Chicago, Tuomo Ruutu scored his fifth goal in six games and Nikolai Khabibulin made 29 saves to lead Chicago to a second straight win under new head coach Denis Savard, who replaced Trent Yawney on Monday.
Jeff Hamilton and Tony Salmelainen scored, and Mikael Holmqvist and Martin Lapointe added empty-netters for the Blackhawks, who dealt St. Louis its fourth consecutive loss.
Khabibulin lost a bid for his first shutout as a Blackhawk _ and first in regular-season play since March 2004, while with Tampa Bay _ when Blues defenseman Dennis Wideman scored a power-play goal 34 seconds into the third period. Bill Guerin added St. Louis' other goal.
Blues goalie Curtis Sanford injured his leg just 6:15 into the game and had to be helped from the ice.
Flames 2, Blue Jackets 1
At Calgary, Alberta, Jarome Iginla and Chuck Kobasew scored third-period goals to lead Calgary to a come-from-behind victory and its seventh straight win on home ice.
Ron Hainsey scored for Columbus, which has lost five straight on the road and has just one win in its last 11 overall. Ken Hitchcock dropped to 1-0-3 since taking over as head coach on Nov. 22.
With Calgary trailing 1-0 entering the third, Iginla scored his team-leading 13th goal at 4:10. Robyn Regehr's shot from the blue line hit Iginla in the leg as he screened goaltender Pascal Leclaire. The puck fell to his feet and he knocked it past Leclaire to tie the game.
Kobasew scored the winner at 6:38 for his first goal in 16 games.
