Sabres win preseason game in a shootout

The sabres beat the Columbus Blue Jackets this afternoon in a rematch from last Friday. The Sabres accomplished a 3-2 victory in a shootout. Still being preseason the games still don't matter and a number of regulars sat out although Miller did play in the game.

The Sabres special teams were (a little) better today as they were one for nine on the power play and one for seven on the penalty kill. That's a little improvement but not enough. Although they did kill off 1:23 of 5 on 3 play.

Pominville had a good game recording a goal and an assist in the game. Afinogenov and Kotalik both scored in the shootout and Miller stoped both of the attempts going the other way.

The captainship moved around again as Campbell was the captain, with Afinogenov and Spacek were the alternatives. I really hope that Campbell gets to be at least an alternative captain come regular season.
