Girgensons scores short-hander, road-weary Sabres pull out 3-2 win over Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Zemgus Girgensons scored a short-handed goal in the third period and had an assist, and the road-weary Buffalo Sabres knocked off the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2 on Thursday.

The Sabres had plenty of energy in their third game in four nights, scoring the first goal and rallying from a 2-1 deficit in the third period. Tyler Ennis and Steve Ott scored, and Girgensons put Buffalo ahead with his goal early in the third.

Ryan Miller made some tough stops after giving up two quick goals in the second period, finishing with 38 saves in Buffalo's second win in 10 games.

Phoenix followed one of its best games of the season with a shaky performance.

David Moss scored his first goal in 17 games for the Coyotes.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
