BUFFALO -- Former Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff and his current team, the Dallas Stars, walked out of Buffalo Tuesday night with a victory over his old team.

Ruff played a crucial role in the game, as well, winning a coaches challenge on what appeared to be a game-tying goal by the Sabres in the third period. As it turned out, Tyler Ennis was offsides on the power play "goal," and the goal was disallowed, taking with it some Sabres' momentum.

With the goal disallowed, the 2-2 game stayed 2-1 in favor of Dallas. An empty netter by Tyler Seguin with 1:27 to play in the third gave the game its 3-1 final.

Just minutes before the called-back goal, Ryan O'Reilly had started the would-be comeback for the Sabres, scoring a power play goal at 13:03 of the third period. Cody Franson and Ennis assisted on the goal.

Dallas goals came from Valeri Nichushkin (assisted by Antoine Roussel and Cody Eakin at 0:51 of the first period) and Jason Spezza (asssited by Alex Goligoski and Mattias Janmark at 7:35 of the third period).

The Sabres next play the St. Louis Blues in Saint Louis on Thursday.


  • With the loss, the Sabres fell to 9-3-1 (one tie) in their last 13 home games against the Stars.Buffalo went 1-for-3 on the power play tonight, improving to 14-for-58 (24.1%) on the season. The Sabres last finished a season above 20 percent on the power play in 2008-09 (20.3%).
  • Ryan O'Reilly scored his sixth goal of the season, each of which has come at First Niagara Center.
  • O'Reilly now has at least a point in each of his last four games against Dallas, totaling five points (2+3).
  • With his assist, Tyler Ennis now has points in each of his last five games against the Stars, totaling seven points (3+4) in those games.
  • Scoring Change: Ottawa's second goal has been awarded to Jason Spezza, with assists to Alex Goligoski and Mattias Janmark.
