BUFFALO, N.Y. - Scott Gomez scored the winner in a shootout as the New York Rangers defeated the slumping Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Monday night.

After the two teams traded shootout goals, Gomez broke the tie by faking right and tucking the puck just inside the left post past spread-eagled goalie Ryan Miller.

Jaromir Jagr and Fedor Tyutin scored in regulation for the Rangers, who improved to 10-0-3 in their past 13 games, and moved into a tie with Ottawa for fifth-place in the Eastern Conference.

Jason Pominville had a goal and assist and Thomas Vanek also scored for Buffalo, which fell to 1-3-2 in its past six games. The Sabres did earn a point, inching to within three of Philadelphia, which holds the Eastern Conference's eighth and final playoff spot.
