Top Notes

  • The Sabres welcomed 700 frontline workers and their guests tonight in celebration of Hockey Fights Cancer™ night. It marks the first home game this season and first time since March 9, 2020 that Buffalo has had spectators at KeyBank Center.
  • Tonight’s game marked Don Granato’s first as the Sabres’ interim head coach. Buffalo owns a 11-8-2 all-time record in their first game played under a new head coach.
  • Kyle Okposo’s second-period goal marked his first goal of the season and the first shorthanded goal of his career.
    • The goal also marked the team’s first shorthanded goal of the season and first since Jake McCabe scored against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Buffalo on March 5, 2020.
  • Jacob Bryson’s assist on Okposo’s goal was the first of his NHL career.
  • Curtis Lazar set a new career high with 5:40 of shorthanded ice time, surpassing his previous career high of 4:52 set on March 9 against Philadelphia.
    • His 5:40 of shorthanded ice is the most by a Sabre in a game this season and most since since Rasmus Asplund (7:36), Zemgus Girgensons (7:14), Jake McCabe (6:49) and Rasmus Ristolainen (6:30) all skated more than six minutes while playing a man down on Nov. 11, 2019 against the Minnesota Wild.
