Another preseason loss

The Sabres have not had too many wins this preseason, but that's not what the games are for at this point anyhow. The Minnesota Wild beat Buffalo 2-1 in a shootout. Gaustad scored the only goal for Buffalo, while Lalime looked good, only allowing a goal when Spacek put one in his own net.

Buffalo outshot Minnesota for most of the game and lead in shots in overtime 5-1. The Sabres play with the man advantage was less impressive, resulting in no goals.

This was the first game in Buffalo for former NCAA players Kennedy and Gerbe, but it is starting to look as if both of those players will be starting in the AHL this season.

The Captain for this game was Pominville with Hecht and Rivet taking turns as the alternates. These positions have been moving all around in the preseason, but both Pominville and Hecht are likely captains come regular season. This is the second straight game that newcomer Rivet was an alternate captain, so that may happen this coming season as well.

Once again Sabres Edge has more details on the preseason game.
