NHL Game #382, KeyBank Center, 2016-12-06 05:00:00PM (GMT -0700)

Sabres 4-3 (OT)

Referees: Frederick L’Ecuyer, Eric Furlatt
Linesmen: Scott Cherrey, Devin Berg

Three Stars: Rasmus Ristolainen; Evander Kane; Connor McDavid

  • No notes tonight – spent much of the time at a soccer game and now I’m catching up on fast forward
  • Let’s face it – you’re not going to win many games when you give up the first two goals
  • Someone should remind Connor he’s in the NHL now and his team doesn’t need to spot the other guys a 2-0 lead to “make it fair”!  It’s as good a theory as any, right?
  • Matt Benning.  MATT BENNING!!!  Amirite? Found money. Might be Chia’s best move, Maroon included.
