Sabres completed a three-game road trip beginning with the defending Cup Champions, the tough Coyotes, and finishing last night by beating the Knights.
The Sabres visiting sin city last night scored a team hat trick by scoring three uninterrupted goals in the second period to take a 3-0 lead on seven shots while at the other end of the ice Mr. Luukkonen stopped all 10 shots he faced.
Mr. Skinner began the festivities less than two minutes into the second period with a wicked wrister over the netminder’s blocker then the Knight’s goaltender struck with Tage Fright watches as Mr. Thompson scores his 50th point and 26th goal of the season.
Clanging a shot off the inside corner to score his first of the season Mr. Pilut gives Buffalo the three-goal lead as the assists went to Mr. Krebs who won the offensive faceoff to Captain Okposo who passed it back to the point.
Mr. Luukkonen played extremely well facing 43 shots with nearly two dozen shots coming in the third period and one Penalty Shot as Buffalo’s netminder stopped 41 SOG from the Knights contributing to the Sabres first road victory in Nevada.
Ukka-Pekka Luukkonen is playing so well that after making the save on the Penalty Shot with approximately seven minutes remaining and preserving the two-goal lead he confidently slapped the puck at the dasherboards.
The Sabres riding a four-game winning streak and scoring the most goals in the NHL to date are playing one home game in the middle of the upcoming Holiday week with the Lightning this Friday night.
