Buffalo Sabres

Zemgus Girgensons involved with an assist in the 4-2 by Buffalo Sabres over Vegas Golden Knights.

The match between the Buffalo Sabres and the Vegas Golden Nights was a clear affair for the hosts at the start. Eichel uses the second power-play situation and leads the Sabres  1-0 (15.). After the break, it was again Eichel who after passing by Reinhart to 2-0 increased (25.). Shortly thereafter, the guests succeed through Haula the first goal to 1-2 (28.). The Sabres but not squeamish and Scandella makes 27 seconds later, the 3-1 (29.). Vegas was not concentrated at this moment and after a pass from Girgensons to Rodrigues, who continues to run on Pominville who scored the 4-1 (30.).

In the final third, the Sabres pulled back a bit what the guests allowed more space and also used – Audy Marchessault scored after Karlsson passing on to 2-4 (51.). Vegas increased the pressure after this goal, but Sabers goalie Hutton prevented wide hits with incredible reflexes. Seconds before the end, Girgensons had the chance of an empty-net goal, but the puck missed the goal.

Girgensons came in third and made a very good impression throughout the season. With strike partner Pommeville he made for one or the other dangerous situation, a goal, unfortunately, he was denied.
