Turnover-prone Sabres fall 2-1 to Winnipeg

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Sabres’ three-game winning streak came to an end Wednesday night, with Buffalo falling to Winnipeg 2-1.

The Jets found the net early, with Bryan Little’s power play strike less than four minutes into the game.

Buffalo had a lengthy power play of its own late in the second period, when Adam Lowry sent Patrick Kaleta face-first into the boards. Instead of taking advantage of that five-minute power play, though, the Sabres promptly gave up a short-handed score to give Winnipeg a 2-0 lead.

Chris Stewart hustled his way to a goal in the third to pull Buffalo back within one. The next-best scoring chance late in the game came on a short-handed two-on-one, but Matt Moulson failed to find the net.

The Sabres will be back on the ice Friday night, taking on Montreal at First Niagara Center.
