The Chants started the moment after Buffalo Saber defender Nathan Beaulieu one-hour a pass in the net for a two-point lead in the third period.
“We want 10,” the sold-out KeyBank Center audience shouted in unison Tuesday night.
The sabers are delivered. Jeff Skinner scored goal 1:41 in overtime and Carter Hutton made 36 records to beat San Jose Sharks, 3-2, for the third 10-winning stretch in franchise history and only since 2006-07.
Skinner scored when San Jose goalkeeper Martin Jones left the box to point a loose puck so that Skinner could grab the puck and beat Jones for his 19th goal for the season.
Sabarna, 17-6-2 with 36 points, has not lost since November 4 against New York Rangers, and another win would give them the franchise’s first 1
1 game stretch. They are now 11-0-2 when they score first and 9-2-1 at home, in line with their best grade since 1979-80.
Shark center Joe Pavelski made an hour’s break at a pass 11:29 into the third period and again at 16:42 to tie the score with a cover for a power play goal, erase Saber’s two-goal lead.
Buffalo defender Rasmus Ristolainen made at 14:42 in the second period, as he rushed to the left, he passed between his own legs and skipped around former Norris Trophy winner Brent Burns to beat Martin Jones. After killing Rasmus Dahlin’s penalty 1:35 into third, Buffalo took on the lead when Beaulieu en-timed a back door sent from Sam Reinhart to the open net.
Closed Conversation: Building their success in Detroit, Tage Thompson almost made a 3-on-2 rush in the second period when Dahlin found him with a pass in an offensive zone but Jones saved. Thompson was triggered two minutes later when he was interrupted by Burns but a penalty was not called.
Power play woes: The Sabrins had two shots on goal during a second power game and Kyle Okposo missed another attempt. San Jose entered the game who killed 53 of his previous 56 penalty.
Even First: Sharks play sabren, 13-7, during the first period, but Buffalo was not played out in the first 20 minutes.
Casey Mittelstadt found Okposo with a centering card almost nine minutes into the periods, but Okposo could not get a shot at the top of the pitch. Hutton outdid his opponent with a glove save at 17:31, when Sharks friend Marcus Sorenson got a pass near the top of the pitch.
Mild welcome: Evander Kane plays his first game at KeyBank Center since being traded to Sharks in February, was welcomed back with a message on the video clip above the waist. The short message produced a mild applause from the audience, but Kane received a mixed response on his return.
There were some boos when Kane moved the puck, but they were not as tall as the bowl. Playing on the Sharks top line, Kane tried to commit his will early and even hit Mittelstadt between the benches during the first period.
Pilut’s flight: Defenseman Lawrence Pilut is back with the saber after being sent back to the Rochester Americans on Friday. Pilut, 22, was recalled Tuesday afternoon because Marco Scandella was not available to play against Sharks. During a pregame interview on WGR Radio, General Manager Jason Botterill gave no reason for the late reason.
With Scandella, Casey Nelson was paired with Nathan Beaulieu.
Next: The sabers will train Wednesday at 11 am before leaving for a three-way road trip, starting with Tampa Bay. They will play Lightning at 7:30 p.m. .! Thursday
