Buffalo Sabres – 8th Atlantic Division

The Sabres dropped a 6-1 decision to St. Louis and a 6-3 contest to the Minnesota Wild before embarrassing the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-2 to close out the week with a 1-2 record.

Despite the win against the Maple Leafs, the Sabres sit all alone in the basement of the NHL and well in control of the Connor McDavid sweepstakes.

Tyler Ennis had two goals and three assists, Matt Moulson had a goal and four assists and Drew Stafford had a goal and three assists to pace the Sabres offense over the week.

Prior to exploding for six goals against Toronto the Sabres had averaged 1.33 goals per game. They’ll look to keep the new-found offense as they wrap up a three game home stand this week against San Jose and the New York Rangers.

The Sabres are seven points back of Florida for 7th in the division and have played four more games than the Panthers.
