NEW YORK CITY (AP) — Defenseman Ryan Lindgren hardly beat the third-period buzzer to raise the New york city Rangers to a 5-4 success over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night and extend their house winning streak to 5 video games.

Lindgren stunned Sabres netminder Aaron Dell by taking a pass from Mika Zibanejad and gunning the puck into the internet for his 2nd objective of the season at 19:59.

Lindgren’s heroics followed the groups scored 3 objectives each in a wild 2nd duration, consisting of 4 objectives in an 82-second period.

Chris Kreider, Jacob Trouba, Kaapo Kakko and K’Andre Miller all scored for the Rangers. Alexander Georgiev had 14 conserves, and was changed by Igor Shesterkin, who had 4 conserves in the 3rd.

The Sabres have actually lost 8 of their last 10 video games. Rasmus Asplund, Vinnie Hinostroza, Tage Thompson and Rasmus Dahlin all scored for Buffalo, and Dell had 31 conserves.

Asplund opened the scoring at 15:53 of the very first with a power-play objective. Kreider connected it for the Rangers with this team-leading 13th objective of the season, whipping the puck past Dell with less than a minute left in the very first.

Hinostroza put the visitors ahead with an unassisted goal at 2:26 of the second. Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba connected the contest at 8:03, poking a loose puck past Dell at 8:03 of the period.

Kakko then scored his third objective in his last four games with eight minutes left in the second to give the Rangers a 3-2 lead, which lasted less than a minute before Thompson tied the game with his team-leading sixth objective.

Dahlin then beat Georgiev with a shot from the point 15 seconds later to put Buffalo ahead 4-3.

Miller continued the scoring barrage with another tying objective 17 seconds after Dahlin’s.

The Rangers were coming off 2-1 loss at Toronto on Thursday. Their scheduled Saturday visit to Ottawa was postponed because of a Covid-19 outbreak on the Senators.
