RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Igor Shesterkin made 28 saves for his second consecutive shutout, and the New York Rangers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 1-0 in a matchup of the top teams in the Metropolitan Division on Tuesday night.

Adam Fox scored late in the first period, and that goal held up through Carolina using an extra skater for the final two minutes.

Carolina goalie Pyotr Kochetkov stopped 23 shots, but the Hurricanes' three-game winning streak ended in their final regular-season meeting with the Rangers, who have a six-point lead with 17 games remaining. New York won the season series 2-1.

The Hurricanes were shut out for the second time this season. Shesterkin blanked St. Louis on 26 shots Saturday and now has three shutouts this season.

Alex Tuch, JJ Peterka, Connor Clifton and Jeff Skinner also scored. The Sabres led 4-1 through the first 15:29 and 7-2 after two periods. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen stopped 21 shots for Buffalo.
