Henrik Lundqvist stopped 29 shots Thursday night as the New York Rangers shut out the Buffalo Sabres, 2-0.
As has been the case all season, Buffalo looked awful in the first period and never recovered. The Sabres were outshot 19-6 and let one of those 8:23 in, when Derek Brassard scored on the power play. The Rangers doubled their shot output in the second perios, with Chris Kreider firing one of those 19 shots past Ryan Miller about halfway in.
That was it for scoring. The Sabres did outshoot the Rangers 11-8 in the third period, but not even playing with an extra for the final 2:30 helped them score.
New York improved to 5-7-0. The Sabres fell to 2-12-1. Buffalo next hosts Anaheim on Saturday.
