BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres doubled up on the Columbus Blue Jackets at First Niagara Center with a steady peppering of Blue Jackets netminder  Sergei Bobrovsky. Five of the six goals scored in the 4-2 game came with the man advantage.

Following a scoreless first period, Rasmus Ristolainen opened up the scoring with a power play slapshot, assisted by Marcus Foligno and Evander Kane at 2:33 of the second period.

Ryan O'Reilly put Buffalo up by a pair at 5:10 of the third with a second power play goal. The snap shot goal was fed by Matt Moulson and Jamie McGinn. Brandon Saad pulled Columbus within a goal at 7:30 with an unassisted power play goal. At 9:21, Jack Eichel scored his second of the season with a wrist shot. Moulson and McGinn assisted. Scott Hartnell again pulled Columbus within a goal at 13:13. Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno assisted on the power play goal. Finally, Moulson wrapped up the scoring at 15:47. O'Reilly and Ristolainen assisted on the Sabres third power play goal of the afternoon.

The win was the Sabres' first of the season and the first for coach Dan Bylsma with Buffalo.

The Sabres next two games will be on the road -- against the Florida Panthers on Thursday and Tampa Lighning on Saturday.
