Rookie Blake Comeau had two points, including his first NHL goal, as New York scored twice in 37 seconds in the third period. The Penguins fell to 4-10-1 against division rivals. Elsewhere:
- Former Sabres Daniel Briere and Martin Biron didn't get the result they would have liked in their old building, as Buffalo topped Philly 3-2 on Friday. Jochen Hecht had the winning goal.
- Blue Jackets goalie Fredrick Norrena extended the Kings' losing streak to six with 33 saves at home. Rick Nash was scoreless again for Columbus.
