Sabres pounded by Devils, 6-2

Avs have a devil of a time with Butcher, New Jersey

Things went downstairs in a hurry for the Sabres, as the Devils scored two goals in the opening period.

Bratt and Johansson each scored a pair of goals and one assist to power another offensive eruption for the Devils, when they struck for six goals in a 6-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Monday at the KeyBank Center.

"I think our effort was unacceptable", Buffalo head coach Phil Housley said.

Ovechkin, bidding to become the first National Hockey League player to have a hat trick in three consecutive games, had a power-play scoring chance from the left circle in the second turned aside by Vasilevskiy.

Gibbons' relentless work near the crease, creating a shot and retrieving the puck, set up Stefan Noesen's goal - off the right wing's helmet - for a 1-0 lead at 6:28.

Gibbons then made one count for himself with a minute remaining in the period on a one-timer in front of Sabres' goalie Chad Johnson.

Gibbons then scored his own goal when Nico Hischier recorded his first National Hockey League point on an assist at 18:56 in the first period.

Bratt redirected Hall's slap shot for his second goal midway through the second and set up Johansson on a 2-on-1 that made it 6-1 with 1:04 left in the period. The Devils enjoyed solid performances at both ends of the ice with a balanced attack that featured goals from Adam Henrique, John Moore, Jimmy Hayes and Jesper Bratt with Bratt, Kyle Palmieri and Will Butcher posting two assists apiece.

Raja had also testified last week that VX was detected on Kim Jong Nam's face, eyes, clothing, and in his blood and urine samples. Trump said on Saturday that he had a good relationship with his secretary of state despite some disagreements.

From there the flood gates opened.

Hall, stripping the puck from Nathan Beaulieu in the Sabres' zone, set up Johansson with a no-look backhanded pass for a 4-1 lead at 7:49.

Hall set up Bratt for the rookie's second goal at 12:19 to make it 5-1.

Beaulieu admitted the tough turnover was unacceptable. Sabres RW Kyle Okposo wore a jersey with his name misspelled "OKOPOSO" for the first period. "That can't happen", Beaulieu said.

Evander Kane scored twice for the winless Sabres, who were booed off the ice after all three periods.

"Obviously, not the way we wanted to start the season", Kane said.

The Sabres begin a west coast road trip when the visit the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night. Faceoff is scheduled for 10:30 p.m.
