Sharpen Up: January 19, 2018

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

They came back on three occasions, but a late goal from New York Rangers forward Pavel Buchnevich proved to be the difference in a 4-3 loss for the Sabres at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night. 

Kyle Okposo, Justin Falk and Rasmus Ristolainen scored goals for the Sabres to erase deficits of 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2, respectively. Ristolainen's goal - a shot through traffic on the power play - tied the game at 3-3 with 5:01 remaining, only for Buchnevich to answer with the game-winning goal barely a minute later. 

Robin Lehner made 29 saves for Buffalo.
