Crawford and Kassian spark Sabres
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Nick Crawford had a goal and one assist and Zack Kassian dished out a pair of helpers when the Buffalo Sabres scored a 6-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets at the prospects tournament here at Center ICE Arena.

Crawford's goal 7:33 into the third period, off assists by Marcus Foligno and Kassian, snapped a 3-3 tie. Cedrick Henley converted feeds from Jacob Lagace and Steven Shipley just 1:01 earlier to pull the Sabres into a 3-3 tie.

Riley Boychuk, Gregg Sutch, Shawn Szydlowski and Luke Adam also hit for Buffalo, which received a 23-save performance from Ryan Rondeau.

The goal-scorers for the Blue Jackets were Cam Atkinson, Cody Goloubef and Boone Jenner; David Savard had three assists and Ryan Johansen notched two assists.  Goalie Mathieu Corbeil turned aside 31 shots in the loss.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
