The Sabres halted yet another Penguins winning streak.
Buffalo snapped Pittsburgh’s 15-game winning streak on April 2, then stopped the Penguins’ winning streak at seven in their next meeting on Tuesday at CONSOL Energy Center with a 4-2 victory.
The loss was just the Penguins’ third in their last 25 games. However, it severely weakens Pittsburgh’s chance of catching Chicago for the President’s Trophy as they remain three points behind the Blackhawks – who have a game in hand. Chicago’s magic number to clinch is two with three games left.
Ryan Miller starred in goal for the Sabres, making 40 saves. Marc-Andre Fleury played equally well at the other end and finished with 29 saves, but his teammates couldn’t break through for enough goals against his counterpart.
