If you like lots of offense, this was not the game for you. But if you enjoy watching the Buffalo Sabres win a game you were in the right place. Benoit Pouliot scored the only goal of the game and Robin Lehner and the Buffalo defense made it hold up in the Sabres 1-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday night at KeyBank Center.
After giving up a key shorthanded goal in Thursday's loss to Montreal, Robin Lehner gave up two in a span of 50 seconds on Saturday against the New York Islanders and a total of three goals in 1:47 before being pulled in favor of Chad Johnson in 6-3 loss.
Puck management has been a problem for the Buffalo Sabres all season. Most of the time their goaltenders bail them out. But against the New York Islanders on Sunday on Family Appreciation Day the Sabres shortcomings were glaring in a 4-2 loss.
