312 Rangers-Sabres in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers sure didn’t play this way in front of Cam Talbot the last five or six games. On the other hand, they weren’t playing the god-awful Baby Buffaloes in those games. That said, against some lousy teams and some good teams, the Rangers hung out Talbot to…
