BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Sabres returned home to KeyBank Center on Monday afternoon, in a matinee game against the New Jersey Devils.

Chad Johnson got the start in net, and was torched for six goals off of 22 shots. Johnson was pulled at the second intermission and Robin Lehner was in goal for the remainder of the game.

Both of Buffalo’s goals came from Evander Kane, who now has four goals on the year.

The most glaring blemish on the loss, is that the Sabres once again gave up a short handed goal. They gave up two short-handers to the Islanders just two nights ago.

The Sabres begin a west coast road trip when the visit the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.
