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 first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
