Buffalo Sabres Rally To Beat Ottawa
The Buffalo Sabres scored two third period goals on Saturday night to rally from down 1-0 to beat the Ottawa Senators 2-1. It's Buffalo's fourth victory in seven road games.
Kyle Okposo scored his team-leading fifth goal of the season to tie the game early in the third period and Sam Reinhart gave the Sabres the lead with just over 8 minutes to play. The Sabres were able to hold on the rest of the way including four minutes playing shorthanded when defenseman Dmitry Kulikov was assessed a double minor for a high stick.
The big story of the game was the play of goaltender Robin Lehner who made 32 saves against his old team including a number of them that kept the Sabres in the game after Ottawa had taken the early lead.
The Sabres play in Boston on Monday night.
