Detroit Red Wings shut out, 1-0, at Buffalo
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Benoit Pouliot scored for the second straight game and Robin Lehner made 32 saves in a shutout as the Buffalo Sabres beat the struggling Detroit Red Wings 1-0 on Tuesday night.
Victor Antipin and Taylor Fedun each had an assist for Buffalo, which handed the Red Wings their fifth defeat in a row.
The win was the first at home for rookie coach Phil Housley.
Pouliot scored with 10:15 remaining in the second period when he took the rebound of Antipin’s shot and stuffed a wraparound behind goalie Jimmy Howard. Antipin’s assist was the first point of his career.
Pouliot also was a star in the Sabres’ 4-3 comeback win in overtime against Boston on Saturday night.
With just more than three minutes left in the second, Lehner denied Red Wings forward Martin Frk with a left pad save on a 2-on-1 chance. Lehner’s shutout was the Sabres’ first this season.
