ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Sabres didn't look like a peewee team. They hustled and competed against Anaheim on Wednesday night, just like they said they were going to do.
Their lack of scoring touch doomed them in a 4-1 loss, with the story about the game here.
"We had plenty of opportunities in front to put it in, and we just didn’t accomplish it," center Zemgus Girgensons said. "We had way too many chances to not score more than one. I don’t think that’s too big of a positive right now."
Still, there were positives. The Sabres stayed close with the 6-1 Ducks until Corey Perry scored twice in the final minutes.
"You’ve got to stay positive here," captain Brian Gionta said. "I thought tonight was a much better game, the way we need to play. It’s a start in the right direction. If we continue to play like that, we’re going to get wins."
Here are highlights from the game.
