Buffalo Sabres Winning Streak In San Jose Ends

The San Jose Sharks finally solved the mystery of the Buffalo Sabres.  The Sharks ended Buffalo’s five-game winning streak in San Jose with a 4-1 win over the Sabres Tuesday night.

Jack Eichel scored his 20th goal of the season just 1:10 into the game, but later scored what proved to be the winning goal for San Jose.  Eichel misplayed a pass to the side of his own net and it deflected past Robin Lehner and into the Buffalo net late in the 2nd period. The Sharks’ Michael Healy was credited with the goal.

After the game Eichel said that was a moment he’d love to have back.  He says that was a turning point in the game.  The two teams had played even up for almost two full periods, but with just 50 seconds left the Sharks had the lead and the Sabres never recovered.

Joe Pavelsky scored twice for the Sharks who stand two points behind Chicago for the overall lead in the Western Conference, but now own a 9-point lead over Calgary and Anaheim for first place in the Pacific division.

For the Sabres it’s their 9th loss in the last 11 games.  But even during some of the worst seasons in team history the Sabres have had some unusual success against a very good San Jose team.  Tuesday night’s game was the Sabres’ first regulation loss in the last 12 meetings with the Sharks.

The Sabres continue their western road trip on Thursday night in Los Angeles.
