NHL: Sabres Beat Rangers in OT


In the National Hockey League's only game Sunday, the Buffalo Sabres returned to their winning ways, edging the New York Rangers 4-3 in overtime.

Buffalo came from behind against New York to rebound from its first regulation loss of the season Saturday to Toronto.

The Sabres scored in the second and third periods to erase a two-goal deficit. Daniel Briere scored in the second period, and assisted on the third period tally by Jason Pominville before finding the net with 63 seconds left in the five-minute extra session to lift Buffalo in New York.

Rangers' captain Jaromir Jagr took over the NHL scoring lead with 23 points after with one goal and two assists against the Sabres. Jagr is a five-time NHL scoring champion.

Buffalo leads the league with 12 wins, one regulation loss and one overtime loss. New York (7-6-1) has lost its last three home games.
