Grier, Connolly Score Twice in Sabres’ 5-3 Win Over Blues


‘Connolly gave Buffalo some insurance and a two-goal lead later in the third by beating Conklin on a shorthanded break. Tyler Myers, who appeared to suffer an injury just seconds before, got the play started in the Sabres’ own end by flipping a pass to Grier. The Buffalo forward, who had already scored two goals, carried it deep into the St. Louis zone, spun around, and fed a pass in front of the net to Connolly who then roofed it for his second goal of the night, making it a 5-3 game.’
