Jeff Skinner scored the lone goal on the power play seven minutes into the first period, but aside from that, Buffalo couldn’t muster any more offense despite outshooting Montreal 37-27.
Overall, the Sabres went 1-for-5 on the power play and 2-for-3 on the penalty kill.
Eric Comrie stopped 24-of-27 shots in his second start this season, while Dylan Cozens and Rasmus Dahlin notched assists on Skinner’s third goal.
