Here’s how hot the Buffalo Sabres’ goalies are right now: they got the best of Devan Dubnyk on Tuesday night.
Ryan O'Reilly was the first player to score against Dubnyk in 10 days, ending the brick wall of a Minnesota Wild goaltender’s shutout streak at an impressive 183:16. Robin Lehner ended up getting the best of Dubnyk as the Sabres beat the Wild 2-1, carrying the momentum from a strong weekend to a three-game winning streak.
Lehner stopped 27 of 28 saves on Tuesday after a masterful 37-save performance as Buffalo edged Winnipeg 3-1 on Sunday. That came after Anders Nilsson pitched a 33-save shutout.
For the Wild, it was a frustrating night. The Sabres, meanwhile, haven’t enjoyed a run like this in quite some time.
