Buffalo Sabres End Pittsburgh Penguins’ 15-Game Winning Streak
How do you figure these Buffalo Sabres? They lose against some of the worst teams in the NHL and beat some of the best. The Sabres ended a four-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins Tuesday night, ending the Penguins’ 15-game winning streak, the second-longest winning streak in NHL history. The Penguins also own the NHL’s longest winning streak, 17-games.
After losing a pair of veteran defensemen in trades the past few days the Sabres played one of their best games of the season, a solid 60-minute effort. It’s been something that’s been missing most of the season.
Kevin Porter scored twice for Buffalo, his first two goals of the season, while Steve Ott and Cody Hodgson also scored while the only goal the Sabres gave up was a first period power play goal by Jerome Iginla.
Ryan Miller stopped 19 shots to pick up the victory. The Sabres are back home to host Ottawa on Friday night.
