The Buffalo Sabres got defeated by the Anaheim Ducks tonight. Overall the game was filled with ups and downs for the Sabres but in the end they could not pull off a win.
The first period was played well by the Sabres. Sabres won the face off and took a shot on goal within the first minute of the game. The Sabres were tied for seven shots on goal, going into the second period with a score of 0-0.

Shortly after the Ducks followed up with one as well, tieing the game. Goals scored by Duck’s players Etem (65), Vatanen (45) and Getzlaf (15) put them in the lead ending the period 3-1.
Sabres’ fans cleared the stands early tonight at the First Niagara Center. The Ducks scored back to back goals in the third period causing fans to lose hope. With a 5-1 Anaheim lead the game was practically over. The Sabers managed to get two more goals scored by Henrik Tallinder (20) and Tyler Myers (57), but could not pull off a win.

Myers, who scored his first goal of the season tonight, believes the team
will become more consistent and successful if we stick with it.

There are not a lot of positives so far. Hopefully we can get a chance to bond
