BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres honored former goaltender Ryan Miller to start the game Saturday afternoon. They beat him to finish it.

A slick goal by Rasmus Ristolainen on the Sabres' 22nd shot of the afternoon put the Sabres up 3-2 and chased Miller from the net for the final 17 seconds of the game. It was Ristolainen's second goal of the game, assisted by Marcus Foligno and Tyler Ennis.

The Vancouver Canucks outshot the Sabres 15-4 in the first period, but couldn't solve Linus Ullmark, who stopped 35 of 37 shots overall.

Jamie McGinn started the scoring for the Sabres at 2:18 of the second period, assisted by Mark Pysyk and Jack Eichel. At 8:10, Ristolainen netted his first of the game, also assisted by Eichel, who had his first two-point game of his young career. Brian Gionta also assisted on the goal. Henrik Sedin made it 2-1 at 13:33, assisted by Daniel Sedin and Ben Hutton.

Midway through the third, Chris Higgins tied it for Vancouver unassisted at 10:15. Ristolainen's goal at 19:43 sealed the deal for the Sabres.


  • With the game-winning goal, Rasmus Ristolainen posted his first career two-goal game and fifth career multi-point game.
  • According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Ristolainen's game-winner at 19:43 of the third period was the Sabres' latest regulation game-winning goal since Mike Grier scored at 19:55 of the third period on March 11, 2006 at Philadelphia.
  • Jack Eichel had two assists tonight, giving him his first career multi-point game. He now has five points (3+2) in his last four home games.
  • With his goal, Jamie McGinn now has goals in three straight games against the Canucks and a point in four straight against Vancouver.
  • Jake McCabe led all Sabres with a career-high 23:47 of ice time tonight.
  • With the start tonight, Linus Ullmark became the first goaltender to make four straight team starts in his first NHL season since Ryan Miller started five in a row from Dec. 31, 2002 to Jan. 10, 2003.
