SUNRISE, Fla. — The Buffalo Sabres took a mere 13 shots this afternoon in their 5-3 loss to the Florida Panthers, while Sabres' netminder Michal Neuvirth saw 46 Panthers shots.

Things started good for the Sabres, with the team taking a 2-0 lead into the first intermission on goals by Cody Hodson at 2:57 of the first, assisted by Zach Bogosian and and Nicholas Deslauriers; and Andrej Meszaros at 7:18, assisted by Johan Larsson and Hodson.

Beginning in the second, period, however, the ice tilted in Florida's favor with a pair of goals by Brandon Pirri at 12:01 (assisted by Brian Campbell and Jussi Jokinen) and 13:24 (assisted by Campbell and Brad Boyes). Florida tallied a third goal at 18:31 from Nick Bjugstad, assisted by Jokinen and Boyes.

The Sabres tied the game at 3 at 12:54 of the third period on a Torrey Mitchell slapshot, assisted by Matt Moulson and Nikita Zadarov. Just a minute and eight seconds later, Florida retook the lead with a wrist shot by Scottie Upshall. Derek MacKenzie and Shawn Thornton assisted. Then with just 17 seconds left, MacKenzie scored an empty-netter, assisted by Boyes and Jokinen.

The Sabres next on-ice action is Tuesday in Tampa, however, the team could look different by then with the front office focusing on Monday afternoon's NHL trade deadline.
