Gamenight: Sabres and Blue Jackets scoreless in first period

November 20, 2017

The Sabres are back on the ice, looking to begin the week with a win. It is game two of a four game homestand for Buffalo, and welcome the Columbus Blue Jackets. The two teams are scoreless in the first period. Check back throughout the game for updates.

First Period

17:53 - We are already seeing more "jump" out of the blue and gold at the start tonight, but the changing of line combinations may have just shown through already. Evander Kane and Jack Eichel are no longer a pairing, at least to start. Kane had a very nice drop pass in the slot but no one was there. I think if the two were still on the same line it would have been a shot on goal for Eichel. 

10:52 - Well, this is a boring game so far. Shots are 4-3 in favor of Buffalo and there has been zero push offensively by either side.
