Johan Larsson potted the lone goal for Buffalo in its 5-1 loss to the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Larsson scored at 13:27 of the third period to cut the Avalanche lead to 4-1, so it didn’t mean much in the grand scheme, but it did to him as it was his first career NHL goal. Larsson was called up to replace Matt Moulson, who is out sick, and it didn't appear he'd make it in time for the game. The 22-year-old has five points in 34 career NHL games. Chris Stewart and Andre Benoit had the assists.
