Buffalo, NY (WKBW Sports) -- The Buffalo Sabres have their eyes on a much bigger prize, but the team will raise at least one banner to the rafters when this season is all said and done.

The Sabres clinched the Northeast division title for the first time since 2007, with a 5-2 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

Five different Sabres scored goals and Ryan Miller made 30 saves in goal en route to his 40th win of the year. The victory ensured the playoff bound Sabres will have home ice advantage for at least the first round of the post-season.

The Sabres have three games left in the regular season, all on the road starting Thursday in Boston.
