The Anaheim Ducks tried something on the Buffalo side, but the Sabers, carried by two goals from Victor Olofsson in the third period, had the best to win 6-3 on Saturday afternoon. See the highlights of the encounter in the article’s main video.
The 27-year-old therefore has four goals in the last three games of his formation. His second of the game cut his opponents’ legs. The one who is nicknamed “Goalofsson” went on a breakaway and beat goalkeeper John Gibson with an accurate shot into the top corner.
The Swede had initially restored his team’s lead at the start of the third period by unleashing a one-timer close to the net after accepting Ilya Lyubushkin’s perfect cross pass. The Russian defender also finished with three assists.
Quebec’s Simon Benoit, of the Ducks, added his two cents by creating a 3-3 tie at the end of the second period, a few minutes after the first of two goals from Peyton Krebs.
Trevor Zegras, who finished with three points, hit the back of the net twice in less than five minutes, including once from an almost impossible angle. Goalkeeper Ukka-Pekka Luukkonen, author of 34 saves, was surprised.
It was a reply at the net from Jeff Skinner, who had made it 2-0 in the first period. Dylan Cozens opened the scoring by fooling Jakob Silfverberg and throwing over Gibson’s shoulder.
Anaheim has now been defeated in six of its last seven games.
