Blues winning streak snapped by 3-2 loss to Sabres

Share

Buffalo (25-23-10 overall - 60 points), had goals from Sam Reinhart and Evander Kane.

It by no means was a ideal period, but it's the second game in three days where the Sabres have looked like the better team in the second. The left winger reached out to tip Zach Bogosian's point shot, extending his lead in the Sabres' goal-scoring race.

"Going back to ten games ago, we really talked about this is our playoffs", Byslma said after practice Friday.

Before Buffalo can get to the Blackhawks - who are on a five-game winning streak - they have to deal with the Blues, who are on a six-game winning streak of their own. He gets a call in the morning for an afternoon game. If no one does, he can report to Rochester.

DeMarcus Cousins wants to sign a contract extension with the Kings
But a report from Ric Bucher of Bleacher Report suggests the Kings offered Cousins to the Orlando Magic earlier this season. According to ESPN , this summer he can sign a five-year contract extension worth up to $219 million.

The lead held until just past the midway point of the first period, when a nice play by Jack Eichel to bring the puck up ice led to a pass to Nicholas Baptiste, whose backhander beat Jake Allen for a goal. The winger took Eichel's pass and promptly slipped it between the pads of Jake Allen to tie the game, 1-1, with 9:34 gone. "I think it's something we have to learn how to do over time".

"You try and push the pace against defenseman. Trying to play my game and do whatever I can to stay up here". Justin [Bailey's] been playing great.

"He's a guy that can skate, a guy that has some good finish and some good offensive instinct and he knows how to put the puck in the net", Kane said of Baptiste.

"They came out pretty strong, kind of like how Colorado did the other night there, in the first few shifts".

Last-second launch delay for SpaceX at historic pad
After the rocket lifts the Dragon spacecraft to orbit, SpaceX will try to land the rocket's first stage back at Cape Canaveral. According to NASA, crew members will unload the spacecraft and reload it with cargo to return to Earth for about a month.

That momentum Buffalo built in the first period carried over for a quick goal in the second period. Since the Sabres are 3-0 and have scored two more goals than their opponents in the second. Less than 30 seconds after forcing Scottie Upshall into a hooking penalty, O'Reilly faked a shot at the top of the slot, skated into the right circle and beat Allen on the far side.

The Colorado Avalanche mustered just 11 shots on Buffalo Sabres goaltender Robin Lehner through the first two periods of Thursday's 2-0 Sabres win at KeyBank Center.

In the final minutes, the Blues went to the man-advantage after a questionable tripping call on Robin Lehner. They're skating backwards when you're attacking them. Lehner exhaled with a fist pump at the sound of the final horn. As he entered the zone Eichel hit Nicholas Baptiste with a ideal backhand saucer pass, tying the game at one.

The Sabres are tied with Florida with 60 points, that's 3 points behind Toronto as the Maple Leafs now hold down the final wild card playoff spot. We want to start getting ready for the next one and when you do that, more often than not you're ready to go. "We just want to keep looking toward the next game", O'Reilly said. If you win a couple of games you can't get too high.
