Sabres struggle early, fall to Ducks, 3-2

The Buffalo Sabres couldn’t climb out of an early hole Sunday afternoon in their 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at KeyBank Center.

Anaheim jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period and while Buffalo got within one and had multiple opportunities throughout the game – even hitting a few posts – they couldn’t beat Ryan Miller for a third time.


Miller started for Anaheim and played what could be his final career game in Buffalo. The 39-year-old was drafted by the Sabres in 1999 and is the franchise’s all-time wins leader. He is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

Johan Larsson and Rasmus Dahlin scored the Sabres’ goals, and Jonas Johansson made 25 saves in net.
