Sabres drop fourth straight in OT loss to Rangers

The Buffalo Sabres’ (32-28-5, 69 points) playoff hopes are on thin ice as they dropped their fourth straight game with a 2-1 overtime loss to the New York Rangers (37-19-9, 83 points) on Saturday night at KeyBank Center.


Artemi Panarin netted the game-winner for the Rangers on the power play after Rasmus Dahlin received a two-minute penalty for hooking.

Four straight losses in the middle of a playoff race is certainly not ideal. #Sabres #Rangers #KeyBankCenter #Overtime #Buffalo #SabresHockey #Canada #Sports #FYP
