Scoring struggles continue in loss to Tampa Bay

‘”You certainly felt it in every chance that we had and every opportunity that we had in the first two periods, even the frustration building with getting looks, getting empty nets, getting golden opportunities,” Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said afterward.’

Quick hits: Senators 2, Sabres 1 (SO)

‘Even when the Sabres get good news on the injury front, bad news accompanies it. Left wing Evander Kane returned to the lineup after missing 11 games with cracked ribs. He rejoined the top line, but Ryan O’Reilly departed it. The center sat out with an upper-body ailment and is day-to-day.’

Baptiste made its place in Sabres

‘”It’s going well so far, I have not produced as much as I would have hoped, but it will come with time in the NHL. This is the best league in the world. I just have to keep working hard, play well defensively and eventually I’ll have success on offense because of it, “said the imposing man 6 ‘1’ ‘and 206 pounds interview a few hours before the game.”‘
