Marcus Foligno scored twice and backup goalie Jhonas Enroth made 18 of his 32 saves in the third period of the Buffalo Sabres' 3-1 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.
Enroth, who started because Ryan Miller was sidelined because of a sinus infection, earned his first victory since a 5-1 win over Washington on Nov. 26, 2011. He was 0-9-3 in 16 appearances since then.
Foligno's first goal made it 1-1 at 5:35 of the second period. His second gave the Sabres a 3-1 lead with 8:12 left in the game.
Thomas Vanek also scored for Buffalo (10-14-3), which returned home after going 0-2-2 on a season-high, four-game road trip.
Derek Stepan scored a short-handed goal for the Rangers (13-10-2), who lost for just the second time in seven games. Henrik Lundqvist made 19 saves.
Enroth made his second start in three games. He allowed two goals in a 3-2 shootout loss at New Jersey on Thursday, but was unable to finish the game after his right leg cramped in the final minutes o...

The hit that Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds delivered to Tyler Ennis wasn’t a dirty or malicious one, even though it was from behind. The Buffalo Sabres forward was merely trying to turn and protect the puck, and he turned as Simmonds was hitting him. It was a bang-bang play and Simmonds didn’t have time to react. The referees were not going to call a penalty...

The Sabres were without Tyler Ennis and Ryan Miller, are one of the worst teams in the league, and don’t play defense, so this game was supposed to be a cakewalk. It wasn’t, and while the Sabres were lucky to get out of the first ten minutes scoreless, they outplayed the Rangers in the second, forcing a lot of penalties. The Rangers played fairly well, but had some sloppy stretches...
