Rangers score first 6 goals, Richards has 3 in 8-4 win over Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The New York Rangers scored five times in a span of less than 3 minutes and Brad Richards notched his first NHL hat trick in an 8-4 rout of the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night.

The five-goal spurt at the end of the opening period and the beginning of the second was part of a 6-0 outburst. Richards scored two of the first five goals, and then completed the hat trick in the third period as the win kept the Rangers in eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

Carl Hagelin, Ryane Clowe, Anton Stralman, Rick Nash and Ryan Callahan also scored for New York.

Cody Hodgson, Drew Stafford and Mark Pysyk scored for Buffalo, which was eliminated from the post-season picture and had its three-game winning streak stopped.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
