Boxscore: Sabres 3, Blue Jackets 2 (Traverse City)

by Rob Mixer / Columbus Blue Jackets

In their first game of the 2013 NHL Prospects Tournament in Traverse City, Mich., the Blue Jackets dropped a 3-2 decision to the Buffalo Sabres.

Oscar Dansk started in goal for Columbus and made 19 saves, recovering nicely after a rough start. The Sabres scored on their first shot of the game and potted two goals in the opening 3:11, but the Blue Jackets made it a tight finish thanks to a shorthanded goal in the second period.

The Blue Jackets continue the tournament with a game this afternoon against the Carolina Hurricanes, who opened with a 4-3 win over the New York Rangers rookies on Thursday.
