Sabres fall to Bruins, 4-3

Prospects Challenge

The 2016 Prospects Challenge has come to an end and the Boston Bruins finish with a perfect 2-0 record after defeating the Sabres, 4-3, on Monday night.

The Sabres’ troubles began right out of the gate, with the team taking four penalties in the opening 10 minutes, which the Bruins capitalized on. Boston controlled the play and scored on a 5-on-3 advantage. The Bruins outshot the Sabres 16-9 in the first period of play.

Down by three goals in the third period, the Sabres put together a rally but it wasn’t enough. Alexander Nylander scored with 2:34 remaining and Brendan Guhle added one less than a minute later. The Sabres outshot the Bruins 14-7 in the final period.

The rough first period was too much to over come and the two teams had a scrum at the end of 20 minutes of play, where Devante Stephens and Jesse Gabrielle dropped the gloves. The two continued chirping at each other afterwards.

Jason Kasdorf was the netminder for the Sabres in this one and he didn’t have a much better time than Linus Ullmark did two nights ago. Kasdorf allowed four goals on 33 shots in the loss. 

Justin Bailey scored the other goal for Buffalo 1:30 into the second period. 

Peter Cehlarik, Jake DeBrusk, Sean Kuraly and Gabrielle were the goal scorers for Boston.

The Devils finished with a 1-1 record and the Sabres were winless at 0-2. Next up for Buffalo is training camp, which begins on Thursday, followed by the preseason a week from tonight.
