Sabres give up 52 shots in 3-2 loss to Oilers

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Edmonton sure didn’t look tired. One night after losing to Boston, the Oilers piled up 52 shots on their way to a 3-2 comeback win over the Sabres.

Boyd Gordon scored the game-winner in the third period to complete the comeback Friday night.

Matt Moulson scored his first of the season to open the scoring the second period, but Edmonton answered less than a minute later on Iiro Pakarinen’s first career NHL goal.

Buffalo took the lead again in the third period, when Drew Stafford found the net. Edmonton kept peppering Michal Neuvirth with shots, leading to Marco Arcobello’s game-tying score, and eventually leading to Gordon’s game-winner.

The Sabres stay at home to host Pittsburgh tomorrow night.
