BUFFALO, N.Y. - Chad Johnson made 41 saves for his first shutout in nearly 21 months, leading the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.

Evander Kane, Jack McCabe and Jamie McGinn scored for the Sabres, who rebounded from Tuesday's shutout loss to New Jersey.

Johnson got his fourth career shutout, and first since since March 21, 2014, while playing for Boston.

It was the seventh time in 31 games the Sabres have blanked the Ducks, good for the Buffalo's highest shutout-to-games ratio against an opponent.

Anaheim goalie John Gibson finished with 19 saves.
