Sabres Edge Lightning 2-1


‘After skating to a scoreless 2nd period, Tyler Myers put Buffalo ahead very early in the final frame, ripping a shot into the Tampa Bay net 52 seconds in. Just moments after nearly tapping in a goal of his own, Thomas Vanek gained possession behind the Lightning net and fed Myers near the top of the faceoff circle. The Buffalo defenseman, after taking two penalties in the 2nd period, gave his team the lead for the first time.’
