He is four goals from becoming the 20th player in NHL history with 600.”When you get closer, you want it done earlier,” Ovechkin said. ”You’re stuck at 599, you want to pass it. Hoping in a couple of games I will have it done and we move forward.”The Sabres held out forward Evander Kane.

Kuznetsov knocked the puck into the open net for a 1-0 lead.Burakovsky’s spectacular goal began with him evading four defenders before nudging a backhand into the left corner.”We didn’t check well enough to take away their speed,” Housley said. ”I just feel there were some guys not ready to play tonight.”NOTES: Buffalo was 5-0-1 in its previous six road games. … Washington won the season series 2-1. … Kane, who can become an unrestricted free agent this summer, ranks second on the Sabres behind injured Jack Eichel with 20 goals.

Dowd wasn’t even supposed to be on the ice on the power play.”We were short a guy, and he jumped on the ice,” Canucks coach Travis Green said. ”I think I was yelling at him for going out there, and then yelling at him for scoring.”Jake Virtanen scored in the third period Tanner Pearson Jersey , and Tyler Motte added an empty-net goal with 41 seconds left.”It was nice to get contributions throughout our lineup,” Green said. ”Really four young guys getting on the scoresheet was nice.”Dallas’ Mattias Janmark scored a short-handed goal in the first period.
