GLENDALE, Ariz. -- One team played like it was in last place. The other played like it had no desire to finish there.
That combination will make for anxious times in Buffalo during the final two weeks of the season.
Knowing a loss would have all but cemented a last-place finish, Buffalo put together one of its more dominating games of the season Monday against Arizona. The Sabres’ 4-1 victory pulled them within four points of the 29th-place Coyotes with less than two weeks to go in the season.
Highlights of the game are below.
Andrej Meszaros scored twice to give him four goals in four periods, but it shouldn't have been a surprise that Brian Gionta sealed the game. He's been the Sabres' key player lately.
