The hit came in the first period of Tuesday's game when Ristolainen collided with the Penguins forward along the boards. Guentzel got up briefly before stumbling to the ice and did not return after being escorted immediately to the locker room. The Sabres would successfully kill off the five-minute penalty. He skates through all 4 Sabres players (none of them looking very interested in playing either) then chips a one-handed, back-hand shot past Robin Lehner who has no idea that one was coming. Wow. On two separate occasions, Crosby put out one arm to shield a defender's stick from knocking away the puck. The Buffalo Sabres have won eight of their last 11 games when allowing three or less goals. Just two minutes into the period, Sam Reinhart tied the contest at one, on an excellent second effort goal. Things escalated quickly from there, with both players throwing punches. Bonino would put a shot on net through traffic that beat the screened Lehner. with 5:29 to play. bones is heating up at the right time, much like past year when the famed HBK line started to rule the world.

Tom Pyatt also scored for Ottawa, which never trailed and went up for good on Turris' goal 4:04 into the third period. He had a date with the Tooth Fairy after losing two front teeth when he was high sticked by Evander Kane with 1:25 left in the game.
