TAMPA - For the second season in a row, the Buffalo Sabres will conclude their season with Linus Ullmark in net. The second-year goalie will make his season debut when the Sabres play their finale against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena on Sunday evening.
Ullmark made his last NHL start exactly one year ago, when he made 21 saves in a 4-3 win for the Sabres in their 2015-16 season finale against the Islanders in Brooklyn. Prior to that, he made 19 starts while Robin Lehner nursed a high-ankle sprain to begin the season.
This season, he's been a workhorse for the Rochester Americans, leading all AHL goaltenders with 3,082:36 of total ice time. He has a .909 save percentage and a 2.86 goals-against average in 53 games and was named an AHL All-Star.
