Yandle Lifts Rangers to 4th Win in a Row



    How to Choose Your Organization for Giving Tuesday
    Tanner Glass #15 and Mackenzie Skapski #70 celebrate the Rangers 2-0 victory against the Sabres.

    Keith Yandle's third-period goal helped lift the New York Rangers to a 2-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres Saturday night.

    Martin St. Louis added an empty-net goal and Mackenzie Skapski made 20 saves for his first career NHL shutout. It was just Skapski's second NHL win, and both milestones came this season against Buffalo.

    After killing off a penalty, the Rangers broke the scoreless deadlock when Yandle's high wrister from the point went through a maze of players to beat a screened Anders Lindback.

    The goal was Yandle's first since being acquired from Arizona on March 1, and gave New York its fourth straight win. All have come on the road, and the Rangers have allowed just two goals during the streak.

    Lindback made 32 saves for the Sabres, losers of six in a row and mired in last place in the Eastern Conference.
