Plus-1: A Quick Start
We all knew this game wasn't going to be an easy one. There’s a reason the Lightning have won the Cup in consecutive years, and many pieces of that championship-caliber team are back this year. Getting an early jump on them was important for the Sabres, and they wasted no time with Olofsson’s rebound goal just 1:41 in.
