Sabres get shutout vs. Penguins

Sidney Crosby led the way with two assists as the Penguins kept the Sabres out of the win column again as Pittsburgh defeated Buffalo by a score of 5-0.  

With a 3rd straight shutout against, it is hard to find any positives for the Buffalo Sabres. At no point did it seem as though Buffalo was dominating the game. They managed to get out of the 1st period tied, until Phil Kessel recorded a power-play goal 13 minutes into the 2nd period.

It was all downhill after that as Pittsburgh would add 2 more in the 2nd and 2 more in the 3rd to top things off.

Pittsburgh continues their push to the playoffs as they now have 87 points, which is good for 3rd place in the Metro Division.

Jack Eichel missed his 2nd and final game due to suspension as the Buffalo Sabres continue their free fall and drop a 6th straight game and remain at 69 points through 70 games.

Head coach Phil Housley was asked about the team’s lack of pride and whether his job may be in jeopardy.


Buffalo will head to Raleigh, North Carolina to face the Hurricanes Saturday at 7 p.m.
