Panthers Sabres Hockey

Thomas Vanek comes within inches of tying the game as he shoots one off the post.

Buffalo (12-4-1) vs. Florida (7-9-2)

The score did not resemble the game at all. For about 50 minutes, it was a one goal game. Here is how it happened:

Drew Stafford scored the first goal of the game late in the first period, his sixth of the season. Coming into the game, Buffalo is 9-0-1 when scoring the first goal.

Florida answered back just a few minutes later when Michael Frolik scored his third goal in the last five games.

The Panthers outshot the Sabres 12-7 after the first.

Paul Gaustad leads the NHL with a 68.2 faceoff win perctage.

Ryan Miller gave Stephen Weiss his sixth of the season. Miller misplayed the puck right in front of the net, allowing Weiss to put the Panthers on top 2-1.
