BUFFALO — The Winnipeg Jets kept the Buffalo Sabres grounded tonight at First Niagara Center, beating the home team 2-1 and holding them to just 19 shots.

Winnipeg opened the scoring 3:41 into the first period as Bryan Little got a wrist shot past Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth. Little's goal, assisted by Jacob Trouba and Andrew Ladd, game 35 seconds into a power play. Pat Kaleta had been called for roughing at 3:06.

In the second period, Winnipeg took advantage of the Sabres, scoring a shorthanded goal while Buffalo had a five-minute power play. Michael Frolik scored the shortie unassisted on the backhand at 14:20. The Sabres got just four shots in the period, despite the five-minute man advantage.

The Sabres got on the scoreboard at 5:30 of the third period as Chris Stewart scored on a near-breakaway, assisted by Marcus Foligno. The goal made the score 2-1, Jets.

The Sabres stepped up the effort in the third, landing nine shots on goal, but it wasn't enough. Final score: 2-1 Jets.

The Sabres opened the game with a moment of silence for those that lost their lives during the recent snowstorm. Many of the 18,442 fans in attendance tonight were at the arena for free, having gotten tickets either by donating blood on Monday or donating turkeys this morning.
