- GERBE EXCELS DOWN THE STRETCH
Nathan Gerbe scored both goals in Buffalo’s 2-0 victory at Montreal on Tuesday. Gerbe, who didn’t score a goal until his 21st game of the season and only scored one goal in the first 25 games, has rebounded to score 12 goals in his next 30 games. His six goals during the month of March tied him with Tyler Ennis and five other players for ninth-most in the league entering play Thursday. Gerbe is currently on a three-game goal scoring streak, tying the longest such streak for the Sabres this season. Buffalo is 8-1-2 when he scores at least once.
- SEKERA LENDING A HELPING HAND
Entering play Wednesday, Andrej Sekera tied Ryan Getzlaf and Joe Pavelski for the league lead with 12 assists in 12 games during the month of March. Sekera has 15 points (2+13) in his last 13 games after snapping a 19-game pointless skid.
- IT’S ALWAYS MILLER TIME IN BUFFALO
Ryan Miller recorded his fourth shutout of the season Tuesday at Montreal. Miller is now one shutout away from tying his career high. Miller has been especially proficient in games in which he has faced 35 or more shots. In these games, Miller has posted an 8-4-3 record with a .936 save percentage and a 2.37 goals against average.
- SHOOTING GALLERY
The Sabres have out-shot their opponents in 42 of 73 games this year. Their average of 33.0 shots per game are the most by a Sabres team since 1975-76 (34.0) and tied Boston for third in the league entering play Thursday. The Sabres had the sixth-best shot differential in the league before Thursday’s games.
