Sabres Enter Bye Week With Loss to Blackhawks

The Sabres’ three-game winning streak came to an end Sunday, as Buffalo lost to the Blackhawks for the 11th straight time, 5-1.

Evander Kane continued his hot streak by scoring his team-leading 21st goal of the season, while Buffalo native Patrick Kane scored his 20th of the year for the Hawks and eighth of his career in 13 games against the Sabres.

The Sabres now have five days off and won’t return to action until Saturday when they visit Colorado. Live coverage of Buffalo’s tilt against the Avs on Feb. 25 begins at 9:30 PM on MSG.
