Enroth stops 32 shots, Sabres move 4 points out of 8th in East with 3-1 win over Lightning

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Jhonas Enroth stopped 32 shots in helping the Buffalo Sabres keep up their late-season playoff push with a 3-1 win over the slumping Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday.

Tyler Ennis, with his first goal in 12 games, Jochen Hecht and Kevin Porter scored for Buffalo (18-19-6), which took over sole possession of 10th place in the Eastern Conference — four points behind the eighth-place New York Rangers.

Benoit Pouliot score for the Lightning, who dropped to 1-4-1 in their past six. Tampa Bay has particularly struggled on the road, where it's winless in four straight (0-3-1) and 1-6-1 in the last eight.

Enroth stopped the first 16 shots he faced before allowing his first goal in two games with 6:30 left in the second period.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
