Sabres win second straight

The Buffalo Sabres won two games in a row for the first time in 2008 after beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2. The Hecht, Pominville, MacArthur line was dominate in this game, and was responsible for three of the Sabres four points. The other goal went to Derek Roy, who also picked up an assist.

The Sabres got out to an early lead thanks to good passing and shooting by Pominville and MacArthur in the first who picked up primary assists each others goals. Ryan Miller was also very solid in net the first two periods, only allowing one goal, and that was a five on three situation with under a minute left in the second.

The Sabres goals in the second were rather odd, but they count any way that they go in, and gave Buffalo a comfortable lead. Tampa Bay came back with two points in the third period, but never really came close to retaking the lead.
