Sabres fail in Pittsburgh

Buffalo blew leads going into both the second and third periods to post their second straight loss. While Buffalo started the game well, they were not capable of putting forth that effort for a full three periods, and were not defensively responsible in the third.

The offense wasn't all together either. While Vanek and Pominville both kept up their game and both scored, Andrew Peters was the Sabres with the next highest number of shots in this game in only a little over five minutes of ice time. Connolly had to sit out with injuries and his presence was missed by the team.

The Penguins are a good team, but Buffalo had this game in hand and let it get away. They don't play again until next Wednesday.
