Game #45 Recap: Blue Jackets overcome sleepy second period, down Sabres 4-3 in overtime

The Columbus Blue Jackets continued their post-All Star Break road trip on Thursday night with a visit to the Buffalo Sabres - a makeup rescheduled as COVID forced the cancellation of a back-to-back shortly before Christmas.

The Sabres, winners of just 14 games this season, are coming in as the losers of two in a row (to the Vegas Golden Knights and Colorado Avalanche). Both teams are clearly building toward the future, but there are still two points at stake.

For the Blue Jackets, Carson Meyer will be making his NHL debut for his hometown team if Patrik Laine cannot go.
