'Buffalo had 39 minutes in penalties, allowing eight power plays, including five in the second period alone. “We just got into so much penalty trouble,'' defenseman James Patrick said. “We can't be taking four-minute (penalties) and (majors). We killed a double minor and came out of the box, and then took another one. That obviously ruined our momentum, and I think they outplayed us tonight. That's the difference.'''
