BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The Sabres fell behind in the game's opening minute and never got on track Tuesday night, falling 2-1 to the Winnipeg Jets.
Buffalo could not control the puck behind its own net, leading to a Bryan Little goal just one minute into the game. It marked the second straight game the Sabres fell behind in the first minute of play.
Thanks to a couple dazzling saves by Ryan Miller, the game stayed put at 1-0 into the second period, but Buffalo's sluggish play would continue.
Off another turnover inside the Sabres' zone, Winnipeg's Andrew Ladd scored his eighth goal of the season for a 2-0 Jets lead.
Jason Pominville would cut the lead in half late in the second period on a 2-on-1 keeper, snapping a six game scoreless streak for the Buffalo captain.
The Sabres picked up the pace in the third period and limited turnovers, but could not find the net. The damage had already been done, in the 2-1 loss.
Buffalo hits the road for Toronto Thursday night, still trying to snap out of their funk - with the season now more than 1/3 of the way finished.
