San Jose took advantage of an early power play, scoring a pair of quick goals in the 1st period to grab a 2-0 lead. With Kyle Okposo in the box serving a double minor for high-sticking, Joonas Donskoi parked himself in front of the net for his 2nd goal of the season. Erik Karlsson took the initial shot and Donskoi was able to redirect it past Carter Hutton for the first goal of the game. Only 27 seconds later, Logan Couture added another power play goal, a sneaky shot that got through traffic and beat Hutton over his left shoulder.

Back at even strength, Buffalo had chances to got on the board later in the period, but Casey Mittelstadt ripped a shot off the crossbar. The Sabres finally got on the board at 1:35 of the 2nd on Jake McCabe's 1st goal of the year. McCabe took advantage of Martin Jones being screened by his own defenseman, picking the top corner on a shot from the far wall, cutting San Jose's lead in half.
