We're underway from Bell MTS Place, as the 23-11-7 #NHLJets take on the 10-21-9 Buffalo Sabres. Hellebuyck vs Johnson is your goalie match-up. #wfp
Unlike last night's Toronto-San Jose game, I can confirm no beards have been pulled or torn so far in the opening minute of tonight's contest.
Buffalo gets the first power play, as Joel Armia flagged for hooking 4:20 into the 1st period.
Sam Reinhart called for high sticking Josh Morrissey, who along with captain Blake Wheeler was trying to make the case for a 4-minute call in discussion with the officials. No dice, just a 2-minute penalty.
Byfuglien with his 1st goal of the year. 1-0 #NHLJets.
Byfuglien with quite the celebration. Extends his arms, looks skyward, soaks in the roar from the crowd. Breaks the goal goose-egg in game #30.
And now Buffalo defenceman Marco Scandella gets his 1st goal of the year, in game #40, to tie it up 1-1 just seconds after Bryan Little's high sticking penalty expires. Rolling puck sort of fluttered/knuckled past Connor Hellebuyck.
With his assist on Dustin Byfuglien's goal, Patrik Laine now has 6 assists in his past 10 periods of hockey.
2-1 #NHLJets. Jacob Trouba point shot. Looks like went straight in, although Marko Dano put a stick in front of it.
Pretty eventful 1st period comes to an end at Bell MTS Place.
2-1 #NHLJets over Buffalo.
WPG: Byfuglien (1), Trouba (3)
BUF: Scandella (1)
Shots 11-9 WPG.
3-1 #NHLJets. Wheeler. 5th goal in past 4 games for the captain.
A chant of "Best Trade Ever" just broke out at Bell MTS Place while Evander Kane was on the ice. #wfp
Bit of a fire drill by the #NHLJets own end includes Connor Hellebuyck having to make a great pad save off Blake Wheeler (!). And now Wheeler sent to the sin bin for an illegal check to the head. 4th power play of game for Buffalo, down 3-1 with 8:03 left in 2nd.
And just after killing off the Wheeler minor, Ben Chiarot is called for hooking. #NHLJets playing with fire by giving Buffalo so many power plays. Now up to the 5th of the game, 5:43 left in the 2nd.
