The Buffalo Sabres eight-game point streak came to an end with a 5-3 loss to the Florida Panthers at KeyBank Center on Sunday afternoon.

Dustin Tokarski struggled at times, but made some huge saves to keep Buffalo in the game. He stopped 35-of-40 shots in the loss.
Anthony Duclair scored twice for Florida while Jonathan Huberdeau, Anton Lundell and MacKenzie Weegar also tallied.
Spencer Knight turned aside 26-of-29 shots to earn the win.
Buffalo finished 2-for-2 on the power play and 2-for-3 on the penalty kill.
