Chris Kreider, Jacob Trouba, Kaapo Kakko and K’Andre Miller all scored for the Rangers.
Alexander Georgiev had 14 saves and was replaced by Igor Shesterkin, who had four saves in the third.
Rasmus Asplund, Vinnie Hinostroza, Tage Thompson and Rasmus Dahlin all scored for Buffalo, and Aaron Dell had 31 saves.
