MUST SEE: 30th ranked Sabres beat Red Wings at buzzer

Playing the 30th overall team in the NHL that also happens to be missing their top player typically results in two points for whomever their opposition happens to be.

The Buffalo Sabres, however, had different ideas against the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena on Thursday night. Buffalo's Marco Scandella scored with 0.2 seconds remaining in overtime to give Buffalo the extra point over Detroit, who saw their already bleak playoff chances fade even more. 

The Red Wings once again yielded the first goal of the game and had to play catch-up for most of the game. They also couldn't bury several quality chances in overtime, including a Tomas Tatar breakaway and a two-on-one rush from Trevor Daley and Gus Nyquist.

Jonathan Ericsson and Justin Abdelkader scored in regulation for Detroit.


In the aftermath of the Detroit Red Wings trading goaltender Petr Mrazek to the Philadlephia Flyers in exchange for conditional draft picks, fans are learning that one of their two goaltenders was definitely going to be wearing a new uniform.

It was just a matter of time until when and who it was, and now we’re finding out why it was ultimately Mrazek on the move.

With his contract set to expire this summer, Holland wasn’t going to be giving him an extension at his current salary, or even a raise. With Jimmy Howard on the books for another season at a nearly $5.3 million cap hit, the team wasn’t going to be carrying nearly $10 million worth of goaltending on the roster.

“(Mrazek) is not the goalie I’m keeping because we have to qualify him at $4 million this summer,” Holland said. “All I can do is watch games and makes assessments based upon what I see.”

With the Flyers in need of help in the crease following injuries to both Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth, Holland decided to make the move late Monday night rather than wait until the following week’s deadline.
