NEW YORK - Former Buffalo captain Chris Drury scored during New York's three-goal second period that carried the Rangers to a 5-3 victory over the sliding Sabres on Saturday night.

Ryan Callahan and Nikolai Zherdev added goals in the decisive middle frame after Markus Naslund staked the Rangers to a 1-0 lead in the first.

New York won its third straight and moved eight points ahead of 10th-place Buffalo, which is falling out of the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves, and Callahan sealed the win by scoring an empty-netter with 24.8 seconds left.
