BUFFALO -- The New Jersey Devils scored a pair of goals -- two more than the Buffalo Sabres -- to halt the Sabres win streak at two games.

Lee Stempniak scored at 17:27 of the second period, assisted by Mike Cammalleri and Adam Henrique, while Jiri Tlusty tallied a goal at 4:12 of the third period, assisted by Kyle Palmieri.

Devils netminder Cory Schneider stopped all 25 of the Sabres shots. Buffalo goaltender Linus Ullmark stopped 19 of the 21 shots he faced.

The Sabres, now 13-16-3, next face the Anaheim Ducks at First Niagara Center on Thursday.


  • With Cal O'Reilly making his Sabres debut tonight, he and Ryan O'Reilly became the first siblings to play together for the Sabres since Bob and J.F. Sauve, who played together from 1980-81 to 1982-83.
  • The Sabres have had three other pairs of siblings who both played for the team, but never in the same season: Randy and Mike Moller, James and Steve Patrick, Darryl and Darrin Shannon
  • The loss was the Sabres' second shutout loss this season. (Last: Nov. 21 at Dallas)
  • With the loss, the Sabres are now winless (0-4-1) in their last five games against the Devils.
  • The Sabres are now 2-3-0 in the second game of back-to-back sets this season.
  • Ryan O'Reilly went 17-for-22 (77.3%) on faceoffs tonight, his best win percentage since Oct. 10 vs. Tampa Bay (78.6%). O'Reilly is now 59.4% on the season.
  • Rasmus Ristolainen logged 27:59 of ice time tonight, the fifth-highest total of his career and second-highest in games that ended in regulation (highest: March 14, 2014 vs. NY Rangers, 28:36).
