Sabres rally to beat Canucks, improve to 3-0

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Jeff Skinner and Tage Thompson scored 23 seconds apart in the third period and the Buffalo Sabres rallied to beat the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Tuesday night.

Buffalo's alternate captains, Kyle Okposo and Zemgus Girgensons, each added a goal and an assist, and Craig Anderson made 32 saves. After finishing in last place for the fourth time in eight seasons, the Sabres are 3-0 for the first time since 2008 and the fifth time in franchise history.

"You go through ups and downs and you got to keep this momentum when you have it," said Okposo, who scored his 200th NHL goal and has recorded a point in eight straight games against the Canucks. "So we're just hoping to continue to keep that confidence for the season. We know it's going to dip at some points.
