October 25, 2017

The Sabres have won two games in a row, and look for their third against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Chad Johnson starts in goal, while Zemgus Girgensons re-joins the lineup after missing time with an injury. The Sabres and Columbus are scoreless in the first period. Check back throughout the game for updates.

Just under four minutes into the game Cam Atkinson thought he scored the game's first goal, but goaltender interference wiped out the score and kept the game at 0-0. The puck was shoveled into a wide open net because Nick Foligno backed into Chad Johnson and did not allow the goaltender to play the puck in his crease. No penalty was called, but the goal was taken off of the scoreboard.
