NEW YORK, March 3 (UPI) -- Rick Nash provided a goal and an assist and scored during a shootout Sunday, powering the New York Rangers over Buffalo 3-2.

Nash assisted on Derek Stepan's tally 3:35 into the third period and then added his own marker less than 1 minute later for a 2-1 Rangers lead as the Sabres' Patrick Kaleta was serving a 5-minute major penalty.

But Buffalo, still down a man on the same penalty, tied it up when Nathan Gerbe notched a short-handed goal.

After a scoreless overtime, Nash went first in a shootout and scored on a backhander past the Sabres' Ryan Miller.

Ryan Callahan followed with a score and Henrik Lundqvist made a pair of stops in the tiebreaker to seal the win for New York, which claimed a second straight victory.

Lundqvist finished with 28 saves.

Drew Stafford found the net and Miller turned aside 26 shots for the Sabres, whose three-game winning streak was snapped.
