Rangers-Sabres Final Score: Blueshirts Win 1-0 In Second Straight Shootout

Another day, another shootout for the New York Rangers. The Blueshirts headed upstate Wednesday night to Buffalo to take on the Sabres a day removed from their 4-3 shootout loss to the Devils. Ryan Callahan scored in overtime to give the Rangers a 1-0 win.

Henrick Lundqvist was brilliant in net. He turned away 34 shot through three periods and an extra frame, before stopping four of five in the shootout. Lundqvist is now 22-10 on the season.

Ryan Miller wasn't too shabby for Buffalo, turning away shots himself, stopping all 29 shots that came his way before surrendering the deciding goal in the shootout.

Both goalies were credited with a shutout.

Callahan hit an open left side of the net, catching Miller as he bit on a fake to the right.

The game paused when referee Kelly Sutherland caught a deflection to his face off a shot from Jordan Leopold. Bloodless, Sutherland was struggling as he made his way off the ice.

The win gives the Rangers 69 points and a 32-12-5 record. They lead the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference. They host the Flyers on Sunday.
