Marian Gaborik skating on third line with Anisimov, Avery...With about eight minutes gone, shots are 8-7 Buffalo....Christensen skates off hunched over (left shoulder?) after thumping hit by Raffi Torres...Miller foils nice passing setup...After breaking up a one on one, Girardi loses puck and is called for hooking at 13:56...Sabres PP thwarted...Best Rangers op came after buzzing around Buffalo end and Avery collides with Miller. Puck slides through crease and Kaleta, on stomach, swipes it behind cage.  Shots: Rangers 16, Sabres 12. But Rangers haven't scored in last five periods, plus OT, and Miller looks sharp..


               NYR haven't scored in 110:53, since 11:49 of second vs. Pens...Bruins and Thrashers have lost, so Rangers have chance to gain ground with a point or two..Rangers being outshot 5 or 6-1 so far...Sabres controlling territory behind Lundqvist, especially against Gilroy, Redden on last shift...Goaltending duel, as expected, continues...8:23 left...Prust went off favoring right knee...Callahan's drive from right circle on rush smothered by chest of Miller with 7:40 left.....Second PP for Buffalo at 13:08, Anisimov hooked down Mike Grier...PK excels, and Miller stabs Gilroy shot that glanced off Gaborik and changed direction. Matter of inches


           Offisides negates long-shot goal that slipped under Miller, who had stopped playing, just beofre halfway mark. Whistle had stopped play. No argument.... First Ranger PP of game with 8:13 left as Adam Mair is off for holding or holding the stick...Shots 26 each...
