Final: Devils 5, Sabres 3

Tyler Myers returned with a vengeance Wednesday night against the New Jersey Devils, but the rest of the Sabres lagged behind on their way to a 5-3 loss inside of First Niagara Center.

Buffalo found itself in trouble early on in the first period. While on the power play, three different Sabres lost the puck after a fight in their corner, which Devils’ captain Zach Parise picked up and fired point blank past Jhonas Enroth.

Less than four minutes later, the Devils cashed in on a power play when Ilya Kovalchuk threw a wrister from the faceoff circle into the Buffalo net, putting New Jersey up 2-0.
