BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres scored six goals against the Montreal Canadiens Friday night, en route to a 6-4 victory.

Evander Kane and Marcus Foligno each had a pair for the Blue & Gold. David Legwand and Josh Gorges had the other two.

Sven Andrighetto started the scoring for Montreal at 3:44 of the first period, assisted by Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais.

Legwand tied it for the Sabres at 12:50, assisted by Nicolas Deslauriers and Zach Bogosian. Kane's first at 19:42, made it 2-1 in favor of the Sabres. Foligno and Ryan O'Reilly assisted.

In the second period, Josh Gorges scored at 1:28, assisted by Jamie McGinn and Jack Eichel. It was Eichel's 21st assist on the season. Just 50 seconds later, Foligno's first of the game put the Sabres up 4-1. Philip Varone assisted on the goal. An Alex Galchenyuk power play goal at 4:47 made it 4-2. Andrei Markov and David Desharnais assisted on the Montreal goal. Sven Andrighetto brought the Canadiens within one on an unassisted by at 6:48. Foligno's second of the night at 17:41 put the home team back up by a pair. Galchenyuk scored another on the power play at 19:38. Markov and P.K. Subban assisted.

An otherwise quiet third period -- offensively -- was capped off with Kane's second of the night. Ryan O'Reilly assisted on the empty netter at 19:05.

The Sabres, now 22-28-6, next host the Colorado Avalanche at 12:30 p.m. Sunday.
