If you are looking for a reason why the Sabres did not make the playoffs, look no further than the team's play in the last minute of periods.

Over 12 games Buffalo was scored on 13 times in the last minute of play in a period. In those games, the Sabres lost all but three. Given that Buffalo missed the post-season by three points, it is obvious that the team's let down in the final minutes of frames was at least partly to blame. "We were three points out," Drew Stafford said, "so you look back at some of the games we threw away either in the last couple seconds or the last minute or so, games we should have won and got the points." It was a disappointing season in Chicken Wing Capital of the World. With a little more focus and a more consistent season from goalie Ryan Miller, BUffalo should be better in 2012-13.

Ben Bishop faced 35 shots and stopped all but one of them as the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Washington Capitals 2-1 Saturday night.

Bishop needed an outing like this. He has been on a freefall in recent events with a four-game losing streak that witnessed a save percentage of no more than .900. His season mark plummeted to .902, which probably meant he was not on very many radar screens. Blocking 34 of 35 shots Saturday night gave him a .971, however, and will undoubtedly raise his salary cap in coming contests.

For the first time during a truly miserable 2016-17 season, Kari Lehtonen generated a shutout.

Lehtonen had a pretty light Saturday, as the Dallas Stars limited the Colorado Avalanche to 23 SOG in a 3-0 win. Lehtonen came into this game on a three-game losing streak with a putrid .885 save percentage, so this could be a huge confidence-builder for the goalie and his team.

Alexander Wennberg scored the game-tying goal Saturday night late in the third to force the Columbus Blue Jackets into overtime with the Arizona Coyotes, where they won a 3-2 decision in the shootout.

Wennberg has scored goals in every other contest since being part of the 5-3 decision over the Tampa Bay Lightning on November 25th. This was his sixth goal of the season and his 21st point. Cam Atkinson and Sam Gagner recorded shootout goals for the victory.

Mike Condon blocked all 24 shots aimed at him Saturday night as the Ottawa Senators beat the Florida Panthers 2-0.

Even though he did not face very many shots, it is notable that this is Condon’s second shutout in six games with the Senators. Condon has a 3-1-1 record with Ottawa along with a 1.76 GAA and a .942 save percentage.

Sam Reinhart lifted his career-best point streak up to four games with an assist during Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Bruins.

The youngster now has two goals and four points during the streak. He has five goals and 14 points in 24 games this season. He just may be as the kid's say, "for real."
Dec 3 - 7:55 PM

Ivan Provorov only needed one shift to put the Flyers past the Blackhawks on Saturday.

The 19-year-old phenom scored twice in 31 seconds early in the second period to put the Flyers up 2-1, and they'd go on to win 3-1. Provorov is now up to three goals and 11 points in 26 games this season.
Dec 3 - 6:55 PM

Mark Scheifele will be held out of Saturday's match with the Blues due to a lower-body injury.

He is questionable to play on Sunday as well. Alexander Burmistrov will replace him in the lineup. Consider Scheifele day-to-day for now.
Dec 3 - 6:46 PM

Corey Crawford will miss two-to-three weeks after undergoing an emergency appendectomy on Saturday morning.

That goodness for modern medicine. Expect Scott Darling to see the bulk of the starts with Crawford out. He should return by Christmas.
Dec 3 - 4:19 PM

Darnell Nurse will be lost to the Oilers "long-term" due to a lower body injury.

Well that's not good news. In his second full season in the bigs, the 21-year-old was blossoming well. Nurse posted five points along with 17 PIMs, 25 blocks, and 60 hits.
Dec 3 - 1:37 PM

Teddy Purcell has been placed on waivers by the Kings.

And thus a dreadful season for Purcell takes another sour turn. The 31-year-old winger has been hampered by poor health and ineffective play all season. He posted just a pair of helpers in 12 games. Purcell carries a $1.6 hit to the cap, and the Kings will be spared just over half of it should he go unclaimed and sent to the AHL.
Dec 3 - 12:32 PM

Corey Crawford (illness) won't play in Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Scott Darling will get the start in his place. Crawford is at the arena in Philadelphia, but he isn't feeling well enough to suit up as the team's backup. The Hawks are now scrambling to find themselves a backup for this afternoon's game. The Chicago Tribune mentioned that goalie coach Jimmy Waite could be an option to backup Darling. Crawford is day-to-day.
