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.
