Jeff Skinner’s four-goal game lifts Sabres over Canadiens

Jeff Skinner recorded a career-high five points, which included the sixth hat trick of his career to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 5-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday at Bell Centre.

Skinner posted a career-high four goals (and his first hat trick since October 20, 2018) to reach the 20-goal mark for the eighth time.

Tage Thompson also scored in Buffalo’s win.

Craig Anderson made 29 saves to earn the 297th win of his career, which puts him in sole possession of 40th place all-time in NHL history.


Alex Tuch had three assists.

Mike Hoffman, Jeff Petry and Joel Armia scored Montreal’s goals and Sam Montembeault stopped 26 shots.

Buffalo’s power play went 1-for-3 and the penalty kill was a perfect 3-for-3.

The Sabres start a three-game homestand on Tuesday when they face the New York Islanders. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m.
