The Buffalo Sabres came into St. Louis and gave the Blues a good run for their money. In the end, the Sabres fall short to the Blues 2-1 from the Scottrade Center.

Throughout the course of the game, the Blues and Sabres played while the weather outside threatened the game inside. A tornado warning was issued for the city of St. Louis shortly before the end of the second period, but the conditions outside cooperated and the game went on without delay.

The game did not start off well for Sabres forward Marcus Foligno. In his first shift of the game, Foligno landed awkwardly on his knee and left the ice without putting any pressure on his right knee. Foligno did not return for the rest of the game.

St. Louis got on the board first with an early goal from Max Lapierre just two minutes into the second period. The game would remain 1-0 until  the 18:08 mark of the third period when Blues forward Brendan Morrow catches Lieuwen out of position and slips it under his pads.

Sabres forward Cody Hodgson scored on the powerplay with 55.1 seconds left in the third, but the Sabres could not get the game-tying goal in the end.

In Jake McCabe’s first game as a Buffalo Sabre, McCabe registered one hit in 16:20 of total ice-time. McCabe was able to shake some early nerves to play a decent, well-rounded game for the Sabres. McCabe was paired with Chad Ruhwedel throughout the game.

Nathan Lieuwen played well once again in net for the Sabres. Lieuwen stopped 26 of 28 shots that he faced in the game.

The Sabres continue their road trip as they travel to Detroit to play the Red Wings on Friday night. Opening face-off is scheduled for 7:30pm. The game will be broadcasted on MSG Network and WGR 550 AM.
