COLUMBUS Adidas Jeff Skinner Jersey , Ohio — The Buffalo Sabres, playing with a sharper edge so far this season, will try to extend their three-game winning streak on Saturday night when they visit Nationwide Arena to face the Columbus Blue Jackets.The Sabres (6-4-0) feel a different vibe with this team. They like how they’re playing after rallying from three one-goal deficits in the final two periods on Thursday night to get past the visiting Montreal Canadiens 4-3 in Buffalo, N.Y.Kyle Okposo scored the winning goal on a power play with 1:01 remaining for Buffalo, which is off to its best start after 10 games since the 2011-12 season.Article continues below ...“We bent, we didn’t break,” Okposo said, according to the team’s website. “And I don’t even think we bent. We just played the same way. That’s all we did.”Jason Pominville contributed two goals — his 27th career multi-goal game and his first since last October — in the winning effort.“Last year, we probably would’ve got in our shell and wouldn’t have had a pushback, a fight back,” Pominville said. “But now it’s a different team.”Pominville’s 497 points rank 10th in franchise history, tying him with Thomas Vanek. But he knows a team is only as good as its last game.“We’ve got to make sure we keep going, come to practice and move on,” Pominville said. “But Adidas Tage Thompson Jersey , yeah, it shows a lot about the character this group has.” The veteran Pominville has produced six points (three goals, three assists) in the last three games as a result of aggressively crashing the net on a line that includes Jeff Skinner and Jack Eichel. Skinner leads the Sabres in scoring with 10 points (five goals, five assists) and Eichel is right behind with nine (3-6).“Jason’s just done a good job of going there,” Sabres coach Phil Housley said. “He’s been rewarded. … That’s one of the things we’ve been focusing on, driving to the net hard and stopping there and paying a price.”The Blue Jackets (5-4-0) are feeling better about their game after ending a two-game losing streak with a 7-4 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night in St. Louis.After falling behind 2-0 in the opening period, the Blue Jackets reeled off four straight goals and kept the Blues at bay.Boone Jenner and Anthony Duclair each accounted for two goals, and All-Star Seth Jones scored his first in his second game since returning from a knee injury that sidelined him for the first three weeks of the season.Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella harped on aggressiveness and that’s what he got against the Blues.“We were harder on pucks,” Tortorella said. “We were cognizant of protecting the puck, taking hits to protect pucks. It was much more consistent on that style of game. Everybody contributed. We played the style we need to play.”Josh Anderson added a goal for the Blue Jackets to boost his team-leading total to five. Artemi Panarin is the club’s points leader with 12 (three goals, nine assists).“We were definitely a meaner team and playing that physical part of the game,” Anderson said. “I think it’s going to help us going into the next game too.”The Blue Jackets return home, where their record is 2-3 this year, and hope to play like they have on the road Adidas Rasmus Andersson Jersey , where they’re 3-1.Backup Joonas Korpisalo was in goal for the win in St. Louis, improving his record to 3-0.Blue Jackets No. 1 goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has struggled to a 2-4 record with a lackluster 3.87 goals-against average and an .872 save percentage but is projected to start against Buffalo. He is 10-4-1 with a 2.50 GAA and a .921 save percentage lifetime against the Sabres. SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Even the simplest of tasks like breathing and eating were painstakingly difficult for Logan Couture heading into the playoffs a year ago.An errant puck had shattered his face and the injuries hampered Couture during San Jose’s first-round loss to Edmonton. They weren’t fully healed until the summer. The Sharks are counting heavily on a now healthy Couture to anchor a long playoff run this year starting Thursday night in Game 1 of their first-round series at Anaheim.”It was tough,” Couture said about playing through the injury a year ago. ”It was very difficult. I went from playing to not knowing if I would be playing in the playoffs. The injury, it affected my life more than hockey. It was difficult just waking up and dealing with day to day stuff. But I’m happy, happy to be healthy.”Couture was hit in the mouth a year ago by a shot from teammate Brent Burns and missed the final seven games of the regular season with two fractures in his face. He came back for the playoffs with plastic and wiring to keep his teeth in place and played all six games, scoring two goals in a Game 4 victory, but he was far from his usual self.Couture was a main factor in San Jose’s run to the Stanley Cup Final in 2016, leading the NHL with 30 points that postseason before the Sharks lost in six games to Pittsburgh. He’s hoping for the same type of spring this year.”That was probably the most fun I’ve ever had playing hockey,” he said. ”Just a blast to go to the rink every day. That was a special group that we had that year. It’s different each year obviously when personnel changes. I think about that run quite a bit, just how much fun it was. Just hoping to relive it.”As well as he played during that run, Couture might be at his peak heading into this year’s playoffs after scoring a career-high 34 goals this season, posting 61 points and having the usual responsibility of trying to slow down the opponent’s top scoring line.That performance helped the Sharks overcome the loss of Patrick Marleau to free agency last summer and Joe Thornton to a knee injury in January and helped Couture win the team’s MVP award, although he has loftier goals still in mind.”I’ve felt good. The puck’s gone in for me. That’s the big thing. Just capitalized on opportunities. Scoring 34 goals is pretty cool. Definitely to be up in the top 20 in goal scorers in this league Adidas Dalton Prout Jersey , in the best league in the world, is special for sure,” Couture said.”The season’s not over. Obviously the goal for myself, and as well as our team, is to win it all. It’s tough to say it’s been a successful year until the year’s done.”Couture will have plenty of responsibility this series to make sure the season doesn’t end too soon.He’ll be a main part of the top power-play unit, one of the team’s most important penalty killers, tasked with slowing down Ryan Getzlaf’s line and provide offense of his own.”The one thing about Logan is he has the ability to raise his level in important moments, in important times of the year as he’s shown in my time here,” coach Peter DeBoer said. ”I expect the same thing. I think we kind of take it for granted but that’s what he is. He’s a great player and he has that ability.”NOTES: DeBoer would not rule Thornton out for the series, saying only he wouldn’t play Game 1. … Eric Fehr and Melker Karlsson, who missed time late in the season, worked on the fourth line at practice Tuesday.—
