Turris scores 2 and coaching challenge disallows Sabres goal in Senators 3-1 win @NHLdotcom

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Kyle Turris scored twice and the Ottawa Senators won a coach's challenge to overturn a goal by Buffalo in the third period to hang on for a 3-1 victory over the Sabres in the teams' season opener on Thursday night.

The game's outcome was essentially decided with 9:26 remaining, when Buffalo's Evander Kane scored on a wraparound which would have tied the score at 2. Senators coach Dave Cameron challenged the goal, and a video review showed Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons was offside when Buffalo entered the zone.

Kane's disallowed goal came 83 seconds after Sabres 18-year-old rookie star centre Jack Eichel scored a power-play goal to get the sold-out crowd on its feet.

Curtis Lazar sealed the victory by scoring into an open net with 1:04 left.
