Another game, another win, more records, more career-highs...

The Florida Panthers held on for a 5-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres at KeyBank Center to set a new franchise mark with 48 records. They’ll add to that over the final 13 games.

The Sabres got the first period’s only goal with 2:47 left in the frame when Cody Eakin went back to Mattias Samuelsson at point and his shot was deflected in by Kyle Okposo.

Florida took control of the game with a dominant second period that saw them outshoot Buffalo 22-8 and light the lamp three times.
