Things didn't go especially well for Robin Lehner and the Buffalo Sabres, who fell 4-1 to the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

Lehner's experienced back-to-back tough games, allowing four goals (25 of 29) on Saturday and five goals (32 of 37) in a loss to Chicago on Feb. 19. Before that, the Sabres' top goalie managed a three-game winning streak.

Rising Buffalo Sabres stars Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart experienced highs and lows as their team fell 5-3 to the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

Eichel generated an assist and two SOG, but he also suffered a -3 rating in the defeat. Reinhart scored his 14th goal of 2016-17, but he also had a -4 rating. Evan Rodrigues scored the first goal of 2016-17, too.

Gabriel Landeskog collected two goals and an assist as the Colorado Avalanche beat the Buffalo Sabres 5-3 on Saturday.

Colorado's captain (and potential trade bait) also had a +2 rating, two PIM, two SOG and two hits in this one. He even generated three FW in four tries. The sturdy Swede broke a five-game pointless streak with this outburst.

The Colorado Avalanche beat the Buffalo Sabres 5-3 on Saturday, giving Jeremy Smith his first win at 27 years old.

Smith had lost in his first two appearance, although now with a .914 save percentage in limited exposure, he hasn't really been too bad. The little-known goalie will turn 28 on April 13, so this has to be a real treat for him. Smith stopped 34 out of 37 shots in Saturday's victory.

Daniel Sedin was the only Vancouver Canucks player who could get a puck past Martin Jones as the San Jose Sharks won 4-1 on Saturday.

Sedin extended a point streak to four games (1G, 3A). He now has 13 goals and 35 points in 61 contests this season. It wouldn't be surprising if the Canucks' aims to slow games down factored into his declining numbers almost as much as age and more than 1,200 regular season games have.

With an authoritative power-play goal in the San Jose Sharks' 4-1 win against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday, Logan Couture hit the 20-goal mark for the sixth time in his career.

Not bad for a guy who will turn 28 on March 28. He has some impressive peers; Joe Pavelski's hit the 2-0 on eight occasions while Patrick Marleau's done it 14 times. Couture also has 20 assists in 2016-17, giving him 40 points in 59 games this season.

San Jose Sharks forward Patrick Marleau scored his 98th career GWG in his team's 4-1 win against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday, placing him alone at sixth all-time.

Marleau went into the night tied with Guy Lafleur and Jarome Iginla, with the latter active (thus able to possibly tie or go back ahead of Marleau). There's no denying who's the most effective of the two this season overall, however, as Marleau now has 22 goals and seems almost ageless.

Ryan Miller couldn't grind out a win for the undermanned Vancouver Canucks on Saturday, who lost 4-1 to the San Jose Sharks.

Miller gave up four goals on 26 shots while Martin Jones had a strong night (35 for 36) on the other end of the ice. Miller has lost two in a row, four of five and eight of 10 during a rough month-and-change. The lone silver lining for the Canucks might be that he's made it clearer that Vancouver should be a trade deadline seller.

Martin Jones got the win as the San Jose Sharks prevailed 4-1 on Saturday, but you can't bury the Vancouver Canucks for a lack of effort.

Jones faced 36 shots, stopping all but one. This win pushes him to 29-15-6 on the season. He's in a nice position to meet or exceed last season's career-high of 37 wins.

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Luca Sbisa left Saturday's 4-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks with what the team terms a "stomach flu" and did not return.

Any Canucks player with even mild symptoms of an illness raise an alarm considering the mumps outbreak hitting this team. Obviously the team didn't confirm anything with Sbisa here, but we'll have to see. For what it's worth, the team is denying it is the mumps, according to TSN's Farhan Lalji.

Michal Neuvirth blocked 25 of 29 shots in the 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh in the final Stadium Series game of the season on Saturday night.

Sidney Crosby drew first blood against Neuvirth, scoring midway through the first period. The second goal to make it past Neuvirth came on a Pittsburgh power-play during the second. Neuvirth let in two additional goals in the third leading to the loss. He faced 29 shots and had a save percentage of .862, which is lower than his season average of .888. This was his second loss in a row. He dropped a 4-1 game to the Capitals Wednesday night when he also allowed four goals on 29 shots.

Matt Murray made 36 saves on 38 shots Saturday night as the Penguins downed the Flyers 4-2 in an outdoor stadium game.

Murray was perfect on 14 shots in the first and lasted 11:14 into the second before giving up a goal to Jakub Voracek. This raises his recent record to 6-2-2 in the last 10 games with a save percentage of .935. Murray has been sharing the net with Marc-Andre Fleury and has overshadowed him so far this season with a 23-7-3 record compared to Fleury’s 15-7-2. That makes him a great differentiator on a fantasy player’s lineup.
