NEW YORK - Patrick Kaleta banked in a rebound off goalie Henrik Lundqvist 2:22 into overtime and the Buffalo Sabres beat the New York Rangers 2-1 on Sunday night to snap an eight-game winless streak on the road.

Adam Mair gave Buffalo a 1-0 lead with 5:57 left in regulation, before Brandon Dubinsky tied it.

Dubinsky rescued the Rangers from a second shutout in two days when he crashed the net and scored his 16th goal to make it 1-1 with 1:23 remaining. New York had gone 149 minutes 30 seconds without a goal, dating to the second period of a 5-4 home loss in overtime to Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
