Ended up scoring eighteen seconds into the period to that opening shift Jake dictate who had a horrible first period. What if coming back and having some really good positive plays in this game. Ian the feeding it's there to the season. And then. The crowd seems like all right there you do it letter makes a couple of saves Matt Olson scores on the power play just 543 NN. We got a hockey game at 32. And that right carpet for the horn goes it yet appeared to tie things up and then some big time saves buffalo all over.

Evander Kane on that I set up for Jack cycle power play against buffalo. The 43 lead and they end up that. Winning it with a empty netter Michael finishing the deal. As he gets its nineteenth of the season and the sabres. And up winning this one by five victories tour but appear at the post game will be headed to locker room momentarily Paul Hamilton is obviously there will take you there to get.

Dominated an 81 distraction shots that Georgia's goes for a penalty and they're able to kill it off and letter in there with some big saves. And then it leads to genders poking called it and the setting up Buffalo's power plated winds tonight as the sabres. Pick up two power play goals that I mentioned it in our spotlight matchup it pre game that. The sabres power play has been. Near them offensively that the real nice job part of Michael streak has been the fact that they've been getting goals on the power play and tonight for to be last night they only had one. Goal. Early to be what opportunity on the power play little one in a one goal game that could have been the difference and tonight the sabres and at getting five chances but. That's enough because you score twice. And that she. Usually you be enough to get the victory if you poll the team had no power you your opponent to know our legal that you get to your own. You're probably gonna win it exactly what happened last night Columbus. Ended up getting two power play goal they ended up giving up done on their one shorthanded at ten and that now the sabres picked up this week gets let. Buffalo will head out west next they have San Jose Los Angeles in Anaheim on Tuesday. And on Thursday it on Friday those are all late games 1030. 10:30 at 10 o'clock at the start times across those days next week and of course we'll have all those games right here on the Buffalo Sabres radio network but. But in your game coming through with a clutch goal. If the argument is about trading need not treating game to meet the argument for keeping him. Is that he wants the puck on his stick at the end of games he is not a brake issue we know that he'll shoot from anywhere. But there's one thing. That. You've got a look take a look at. Is that he is not afraid of the moment he definitely at that point you know what when there's a pressure moment. Mean is not want to shy away from it. We've had players in the past and his team that definitely I think when them big moment was there they end up passing away or they did a shying away from wanting the puck on the stick. There's some players now on this team that in a moment like this do you want it and been asked to be right near the top of the list. He's call it for the puck and of course Michael does the little spin in the circle to create some space and and finds it with a beautiful pass that's one thing that we know. Why this power play clicks it's the passing when the passing is there at the power play its money and they've been very good they get two more tonight. Including the game winner which came from Michael and and Michael seals it. With the empty netter to close out the five to three victory tonight for the Buffalo Sabres so next up again a trip out west. See if this team has any sort of miracle fight in them to get themselves back into the playoff race it will be a very very tough task. Games in San Jose teams in Los Angeles in games in Anaheim those are three teams right now that are all. Looking for position enter the playoffs out west though it won't be easy for the sabres although. Who knows you know record wise they've always done very well playing the sharks for whatever reason it is. You get that went. Who else but for now at least tonight he could feel good if you were in the building about a comeback tonight at. Looked like was never going to happen it will be a 100% lie with the facts that I saw this coming it was three nothing after one of I it's essentially was thinking well to be talking about like a 51 Columbus victory here tonight and if anything we're going to be talking about. Is the coach can alas this season. Still might be more important discussion to have but at least sports at night but we're talking about this game it at least in navy. The pushed aside but Buffalo's best players played like it was the line and gain Michael. I'll cities is at its name. Coming back again. And again as we're gonna see me Jamaica. Fighting back connect implement programs. An orphan for lives are known and you know we've shown it all year. You know we've read he can come back in this game is addiction take a deficit with me and ultimately it's up to him early obstinate and but no we really came together as a group in and a phone went one. Our senior yourself by. You are you're able that you do have a short memory if something goes wrong with you you're able to overcome it and be able to play decent forty minutes like you did tonight with a lot of passion and it just seemed like the team came out with a passion in the second period. And commitment to its note. Or trust and and I you know by the way should play in employment rolling. Made a couple for plays in the first set them up and about Burnett and you know it's unacceptable and that's him at seven about a can pick him up and you know we come on the seconds. You know with a swagger you know at this point the season Mexicans all grosans. No it's rooted in it's a good team. Intense wasn't here after the first bird. You know it's it's frustrating you know we we can't mountain came out flat like we did and then to comment for now than. And itself. Especially myself little about her for Nils is and like I give this to that. Should have happened but then you know. It's it's no good for for Nielsen athletic crimson and as a good enough for us let's. No we just imminent in the for speaker personal mission in August for a couple of bitten you know we knew we had to do with but the game for an excuse them. It's amazing how this works last night you lost the special teams battle tonight you win the special teams battling yeah NUM hockey game it's amazing how that happened so much and asleep. I mean every night it's a difference. He probably come from losing games which ended last night in Europe or click on the schemes and that's not that tonight and purpose finger Hilliard apparently kills it was better as a boy it took a step backwards allotment but this and keep building forward and and you know the stats the stats are not gonna change much for going forward is standard bear down and then do your job Laurie did a nice job behind the that just make sure we keep up are going to get back to you for your gold in the today you know we started for reason the second period to get a serious energy and generated a great job in the fortunate retreat in the park and you know it makes a great passing and it's tree in front as well packaging. It became. I'm posting human around and one is going to be speaking in a moment so we'll have over the. It. Or. You know in all it's a Dallas while ago or that Johnston. You know there's going in for him experts say and think if America. There we Kimmel scored first shift and that you know got some momentum going and respond or. Robin is a different mentality for goaltender when you've sat for twenty minutes then you have to go into the game. On a really you know we go to understand ago we've got to stop pox this little bit. Or to sail over adrenaline first sort of calm yourself down and this again and again. Coming in that spot that you're down three to nothing in the what's with the minds of legal in his spot. You know it's. Same thing I know my job it's changed its try to stop the next part and you know it's it's first it's or pre early in the and second and you know we've come back we don't. We might have struggled might have our ups and downs well we've we've never Wear. Is there more pressure the does he feel like you have to be perfect or maybe on the opposite end. You know you are you playing from behind and it's you know if things don't work out you had a big deficits start. This stuff to say I'm over the pressure thing you have the first couple years and finally your own miles up next pocked and it's and your rabbit and you make them less safe and instant tickets through and how how did you get over there and and keep that I don't know. I don't know I don't know it's kind of broken play I think at this panic get the audio over there I felt. It's lucky like the sweet kid and and making across lines. Personal pride come into play after the first period. You know again we we've put ourselves in that system. We have we can miles slope. I think we had a great first period and in other gonna walk in order to make your day and that. I think we came out of. Can cause a new team again and this and just had a good period. That's sort preached and try to talk about all year try to make this more consistent that's. You know we we saw against good teams all year long that we can play within I think no matter what look in the standings or whatnot. I think yeah the whole years and we're winning games you know we've spent a couple here in the end. It's got away a little bit but I think all in all season has been competitive and very competitive very close games and I think it's just this personal small mistakes and you know not be and a richer consistent Kenya this kind of Alice Marie are about to. As we did today wouldn't give up or are gonna give up and sees news. Robin love and post game and then McCain's going to be coming on 12 here so I won't hold it here Brian. Vendors such an old cliche but the team usually wins a special team battles and received two nights in a row now they went at last night with a couple power play goals you guys do the same tonight and it's amazing how that works in his weight constantly. Yeah I mean over the course of the season. Usually if you're in the top ten in the end both special teams. You're playing often you're gonna analogue games but. Tonight our resume is did its part finals looked in your account through and then. The monster and obviously it. Came on the first period there and no real way were China got us back on it. Last night on what was seen. Yeah. This pretty you know conservatives the smiles. You know we've you know there it was into. There wasn't obviously. On the position in the standings are going to be you know we Kellogg. After a tough loss last night in her hometown fans in and you know give up three goals. You know. Neil stops those normally but at the same time those are some great opportunities back story is no chance. We get walked in. The very top corner slaves that Arnold I mean this is not to blame it was us is that the human. But again we we can mountain. Person character played with some emotion and you know lots what got us going I've kept you talk a license to you know got to accountant and played with Johnson and I enjoy that oxen. He did a great job of it'll set the tone. We're doing on the pocket and in the mechanized play out front take care reform that schemes electrical wants. Now as he's a Sparky he's he's he's a great guys through and it was nice to see him kind of response are. And do you sometimes wonder why you guys can't get that emotion going more I mean you have forty minutes a great emotion. And starting with the second period as a team. It's just a mindset. To be aggressive. Whether it's with the puck without the puck physically I think. An obvious treatment station news. We're seeing is being caught in between or Macon the possibility of direct artistic progress in the state career. Trying to take some guys that often facility took a bye and announced or it without I cut being caught in between so. Before I let me enough to loosen. There's a circular or to open your eyes is that passes come across from jacket you know you're getting your real house and I'm sure you're pretty sure you've got some not to shoot. Yeah I always they saw other. He even broke the stick him there isn't just an interchange them.

Bang bang with the first school all the way in the Plano school beaten you know the one on 4514. And beats beats Jake and but I I didn't I didn't like. Obviously didn't like goals but it just didn't like the it's that's what we had the game. We stated as such in the in the second period of personal mission is pro sort of second period. Because it. You know we he he stepped and a big way. There forest we if we get momentum right enough the start of the second period with. Deal made great plays out to Judy king. We get that goal and gets that goal or. From Olsen. Or. Or five really chances. Breakaway rights. It's. It's the size that. Robin Meade. Through four or receive for. He's looked oh earlier in net. Believe this that there you wonder why you emotionally. Or more. From. Guys say they said that the first two goals are. You know you just you kind of wonder Alba. They go in. You know we do we get beat 101 of them not a pretty situation first one's wife shot. Eyes again. Scratch those two plays a still that like. The ocean view. The attachment to the game from our team and and you know I don't not so sure they had it either. They get the two goals and they get up through enough for sure I. I just didn't like. What was put into the game at that point diamonds and they scored the third goal of we use we needed we needed to have a response team. Passion and energy and and how we play the game and they became known respond that way. Teams thrive on. When you see her now late first period every night. It was last night how concerning is that he's. And you know we've we've been. We've we've had a few. Tough losses we've had a few. Tough games to deal with here lately it. And that is you know it's not much still a bit like a coming out that Pittsburgh you know this. Was very. Keenan casino owners from a game and Colmes last night. You know it. We we. I didn't didn't necessarily it's like twelve time all feel like he's in time vote to. And there was an outside. Later in the game OSHA and the title for but. Try to jolt its. That emotion and energy into our group who there in the first. You're in this game in this moment. Dealing with the struggle being down three very are you at any point whether it was intermission it. Two weeks ago we are difference. This thing really going south here. Probably get back. He IE that. Frankly. It's kind of brought it back to us clues and the league against Nashville you know. Where. You know here. Still you know still we. There's all that I before and were still. Trying to recover from. Get Winston and we lose 42 to four lead 42 lead variants that threw one. And that's the succession of days go by years you kind of craft away games. And yes that's. It's kind of a separate us those are going to excellence it's time we got to do it the other way which. Which we did on. Its head. Here. While it. And if it's. A lot of succession and regime the game inject it started the second period and I didn't. Didn't necessarily think it was gonna come in the form of book backhand pass from the next Jacob into the top of the circle furcal went. To his credit he gave it and and I think. Well who is. An energized our team not just playing not just the goal with the play from him. I'd there is that coach Stan files off your post game brought to you by Paul William belts your power of attorney rankled peel back here at 716 with a sabres. Come back and when it 53 for an 181744. At the banks that are gonna get Paul Hamilton's take on this one. In just a few moments but for all of you maybe in the building didn't get to hear Rick Jenrette call to come back here is will pick up the high. Islets at the start of period two buffalo made good goalie change they're down three nothing. And here's where buffalo gets it going just eighteen seconds into the second it's. Name is Gloria. He went flying in the the glory comes up with a bucket behind the net that it back McCain's job. That's the tapes third Delorean pain existing 182 seed 31 of Blue Jackets we keep it that hitting the post on his deck ship almost scored there. But Bob a look at the power play and they cut it to one Olson follows up with old shot his thirteenth season. Illustrating it you flip that back kept him for friends that. Got of their classmates would go to the blast knocked out rebound right beside the so balls and getting his thirteenth Bogosian and Branson assisting power play all 543 now it's 32 Columbus in the crowd back into it. Few moments later Robin letter big save they believe though keeping it a one goal difference and then beat the final seconds of period two. Buffalo spice things up samurai at heart is sixty the year that around on the boards for the Blue Line a longshot gets knocked down kept him but buffalo should look. 33 at this point heading into the third. And we go down late stages of the third period chatters at the box for a book game. Buffalo's power play with a chance to take the lead late. Looked around for Michael Michael Turner who's a getaway for methods that Michael got that plus ice hey. And just shoot 29 left king gets number 25 of the season cycle of beautiful set up Chris delighted the other assist power play goal 43 buffalo and and Michael. With just the final seconds ticking off seals raided the empty net. Cognitive O'Reilly. It's still in the circle it's picked up for the Michael's nineteenth from O'Reilly. 1956. It the FDF 53 buffalo those here highlights regenerate a football. You heard it right here on the sabres radio network. Columbus outshooting buffalo 3631. Of your three stars tonight Sam Reinhart. He had a goal he stark number three Jack eichel a goal and assist. Started for two at Robin letter coming in. An outstanding performance he goes perfect it is time index 44 shots 24 saves on monster on Atkinson in the third period. And he start number one and tonight definitely are high impact player of the game brought to by the lack port outdoor store high a pick here for hardworking men and women. So five receivers the final we get more now on if Paul Hamilton's analysis as we go to the media room back inside the banks that are. Well Paul we spoke after one and it was things were pretty dismal so. You're gonna tell me they saw this coming right. Want to ensure asked me at the end of the first period relative told you know that I had it all figured out that. The against one of the better clubs in the league and quite honestly you know what I think happened to I Columbus one. I think there's sit in the program that was easy this team since things you can. There's no way they're going to be does. We're Columbus. Buffalo came out with some passion and you know for as much grief is nick and Lori takes his his teammates love him. They love him as a teammate he's one of the best teammates you could ever have. And miles from that was a button he pushed that was the right but he decided we need some passion to start the second here we have nothing. In the first period no pressure whatsoever. Throughout the honest to god truth I'm too much passion since the bye week. And that its has obviously been going through the motions a lot of these schemes and he he provided it he came out and as he said he wasn't expecting immediate and assist on the goal but. It was hard work behind the night he wins the battle with the puck out to the top of the circle and it's in the night. So you know that was that was a move where you know he was trying to inject some energy into the game and into his team. And at work and the big question is and Brian I don't have an answer to it. Why can't we see that I'm the passion more that we saw in those forty minutes. I mean though forty minutes they couldn't have been more passion they couldn't have been more on top of the game is. As files from likes to call engaged in the game they couldn't have been more engaged in the game they were. There was a Saber at every turn if if the Blue Jackets stuff Donald line their receivers everywhere tipped to take care that weather with Georgia's riser where there was only help. Whether it's from Goshen weather was glory day they were all there is one. And they played this one and it just makes you sit there and shake your head and say why don't we see that more. He entertains at the same thing Paula says you know we came out played like we did nothing to lose and they don't know what we don't do that more often. Let's talk about the impact of Robin letter the switch. It the end of the first he obviously had some monster saves Paula reminded me and pat would say the same thing too about. Via the Pittsburgh game number buffalo is up three nothing they changed a flurry and he has a big reason why it's forget the winning. That game kind of similar scenario here but I mean letter did have some huge impact on this game. You know that's a perfect you know it was exactly like that and worry made some huge saves and thinking I still in Ohio one or stop to them in the last with the goaltender on the last minute there were two that I thought. Why don't were wide open in in the net. And he stopped them both especially the can some one I have no idea how we got there and and kept that out of the net. I just phenomenal saves there he was right on point. Nelson. Quite honestly in the year 2017. Is not the same. I get a lot of it Nielsen's the better goalie and everything in its like folks. You're living back in November. He has struggled the Pittsburgh game he was great and but for the most part he has struggled since the turn of the calendar year. And until these last six games for the most part one or was spot on and playing very very well and then. The six schemes rolled around where basically nobody was any good except for Michael was on a scoring streak he was trying to do at all. And they've made just. You just wasn't your best. He's got to have those two goals please ask you when it didn't cost buffalo because there will come back and get back into effect. He just has been struggling mightily since we wanna say the middle of December or maybe. Now all Hamilton with us here at the post game 53 savers when it rankles here settle at six. Let's just talk about the game winner Paul. These are I was sand. Earlier while you're heading out of the locker of that for a long time this franchises that players that shy away from the big moment the pressure spot. Well that play. Is from two players that I think are the exact opposite they seem to thrive they want a pot they wanna make the play in the big moment that was cycle setting up game. There was and Cain knows he's got its quite a bit of another that puck is in the wheel house and that's exactly in the wheel house right where it needed to be. And he put it in there and came wasted no time get rid of it and it's in the not so. The those are guys who. You know K loves the big stage and he thrives on the big stage and he wants to be in the big state he wants to be in every situation if it's a big situation. It's get me out there it's not. Maybe. There with somebody else. Nothing of thuggery Timor a shoot out situation where the coaches no I was looking not to mention nobody was looking we know we want to walk there why. I mean I were me I would I would you like. I'll give me although it lets go you know why you couldn't wait to give out there and I just I don't understand that the government LD. Are all the far left is the let you go here how about just a quick thoughts at the task ahead three West Coast games next week against the re difficult. Opponents. They've broken a lot of streaks this year so maybe winning in San Jose won't be easy easy it's been for the past X amount of years where they always went out there even when they're taking. They would win out there are member and that this bad as they ever were in the if there in the tank. With the sharks were also in the hotel on Long Island in the hours in the elevator of the bunch of sharks people on their life. How does your team beat us twice this year. Know if there are you guys are ones lost or go to me. Biggest decision how we lose twenties you guys and you know so you could say the sharking should be buffaloes but as I said a lot of streaks have been going the other way this year so maybe they'll go the other way to earn. None of those three games are gonna be easy ones that's for sure. Thursday exit Tuesday it starts at San Jose 1030 game three gave it 930. Paul thanks so much congratulations on your cyclones. Basketball win today you know three big twelve titles in a four years not to them. Let's see these you start paying closer attention I force you to watch college bets well.

Very unbiased perspective there all the job and your right. Kansas getting knocked out was a big big help a bit that the article thanks so much to do that we get prepared. And right all able to hear the post game yup Paul cyclones the West Virginia in the finals so. Paula snappy he was reminding everybody in the press box but it's like victory tonight.

Five different goal scorers after Columbus after the three to nothing lead. After periods one to give a damn about the credit listen it. IA have had any issues with the coach this year I think there's a lot of things to go after him for. He did two things that he normally does not do I think at times which. Is called timeout he loves to save it for the challenge I want timeouts called earlier. All right you have at your team's unraveling at all. He tried it. In the first I like that Eddie also did pull the trigger on the goaltending geez you might say well that was an obvious move but he did it. Got to get some credit for that I am not gonna sit here say that I am you know all for in Basra for the future of the country is that and that's how it is about what. It's a little piece of this come back tonight in terms of what he could control from the bench. After a three ethics I'm not saying he's out of the book either for having misty not ready to go is also big arc the blame for that. But down three nothing there was two who I liked the timeout. Yes you know because he loves CDs and jailed in the goaltending it particle work so called him a little credit for that. All right let's check the resident NHL. And good one going on in the ACC tournament right now for more on that here's the scoreboard once again the game.

Thank Dan yes it is back and forth you're not allowed to tune out of the post game yet we still have a few minutes left however. When it's over if you're not watching Notre Dame do you probably should make you put that on TV unit and let's not exactly. Kind of like we're doing right now here that once they got they got out of here on the big screen. And we're prepping for next week that's right I doubt we'll see duke or Notre Dame and buffalo unfortunately. That was the most fun to watch. Great fan bases it juicy story like always but. They'll beat you we'll be seated to minority will be seated too high I think it's well. Especially noting that on the witness either up by six. And a half ago but are let's talk about this one here at first to start with rob a letter to me. You know we've yes it's five goals that need it cycle but Robin letters that the key to why it's come back after tonight. All right if if you let cynical at any point. I mean especially when you're trying to make that comeback down three. It's different story like we saw that game against Pittsburgh. For the sabres and opening up legally the goaltender change happens they're not able to score again. And all the sudden the penguins get a couple of goals and the right back in the game and they when it while the same thing happened for the sabres tonight. They're able to weather the storm after the first. If we come up for the second with a goaltender cheated. You know it wasn't so much we heard from the players who wasn't so much is what on -- bills that did wrong is what the rest that he did it is that wake up call that they needed. And they they answered with a resounding. Yes in terms of they're the propriety he did after that first created. We saw the results. The game winner. It's really to me just it's a thing of beauty. But I'll watch that replay over and over again it's just an absolutely. Laser on point accurate pass from Michael Tiffany at the side of the net. And hearing name I mean you're the power play the crowd's into it it's the with the clocks ticking and he says he has you know the ability to it as he set kind of cradle in the off first before you roof it. All they'll essentially had like up on half a second you all that. And I guess that's just who skilled players make it a great play there and you know for for someone that enjoys just a good hockey player that was. Right there and we've we've talked a lot about the vendor needs five on five policy it is story five on five this year but. That's exactly the goal scorer. You know. The goal scorers only takes it and don't even mention. The puck just gets passed passed out 22 Jack cycle to a law that but it happened so. A lot of things have to go right the sabres waited look. Last night special teams were not in their favor. And had heard that tonight they answered with a not giving up but he powerfully built against it's going couple especially the game winning goal coming up our play. It went exactly last night buffalo at his one chance on the power play that little one they gave up to this tonight. They know lawful three Columbus attempt that they get to their own so. Not a surprise at least in terms of the final score that that plays out that later tonight quite so let's look ahead here. Three games out west sharks to teens and stuff it's not easy and if there's any sort of miracle run here of late towards us talking playoffs again. You probably have to get five of six points if not six at six. Yet you you have to go all of us if the wind events and here's the point of the season now. Putting it's always important but now that you're under twenty games lots and just you know you know we brought succeeds and I finally have to do it. The sabres their chances before they haven't been able to either equal Philadelphia or move past Tampa Bay. It got to finally start but some wins together and hope the other team Toronto blue set to thank David plate two more teams that Tampa two more gains of to more than two models so. At this point you've got to win your games because the teams around you are gonna have more opportunities that you over these final thirteen games sabres are eight back. Deletes. Well the wild card right now Toronto won in overtime that was not the greatest of outcomes for buffalo tonight. If you wanna look at the standings in terms of the top three in the Atlantic. Boston is to better your ten back I mean it's just that's an awful lot of points and that's the only vaccine that. He still. Boston has the key month guillotine to thought have you. From Florida to throttle at two teams. More to play that you so that. That makes even more that. But more important over these final stretch because. Let's get past those three which you get to Detroit on that following Monday you down to what your final ten games of the season. Time for an out. And the sabres have played more games than anybody in the east right now to 69 if everybody else sixtieth the another thing all those lonely strike if they do put a nice run here together to finish in the miss by a little bit. It's a lot of those unfinished business games. To beat the Arizona threw nothing wanted to inexcusable that Nashville 42 in the third one of them and that's and that's. I'll go back to that the game early seasoning Calgary where they considered it no no business leading that game they happily. Bet he could just political late and that Calgary had to get the two point sabres game one but he could you can look at different points up the season where what's left on the table.
