Buffalo 3, Washington 2

Via: The Sports Network

‘Washington could not mount much of an attack with the extra skater and Buffalo increased its lead with 3:37 to play. Tim Connolly skated the puck into the Washington zone and pulled up along the boards at the right circle. He fed the puck to an onrushing Hecht, who beat Kolzig with a nifty backhander from in close for his fifth goal.’
