The Lightning had four different goal scorers while Chad Johnson stopped 27 of 31 shots in the loss for the home team.

After a scoreless first period, Erik Condra scored on a wrist shot for Tampa at 8:14 of the second, assisted by Victor Hedman and Valterri Filppula. Nicolas Deslauriers tied it for Buffalo at 13:55, putting a backhand shot behind Tampa netminder Ben Bishop. Sam Reinhart and Josh Gorges assisted for the Blue & Gold. Nikita Kucherov put Tampa back up at 19:34. The wrist-shot goal was assisted by Tyler Johnson and Anton Stralman.

In the third, Steven Stamkos made it 3-1 Tampa at 8:53, assisted by Ryan Callahan. J.T. Brown scored the final goal of the game at 12:41. The tip-in was assisted by Jason Garrison and Braydon Coburn.

The Sabres, now 0-2, next play Monday afternoon when the holiday-namesake Columbus Blue Jackets come to Buffalo.
