Sabres look to build on loss as they host Wild

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres finally found their offense in the closing moments of Monday's 3-2 loss against the Columbus Blue Jackets. They'll look for more of that on Wednesday in another home clash, this one against the Minnesota Wild.

The Sabres have lost six games in a row but have something to build on after a spirited finish against the Blue Jackets.

After falling behind 3-0, the Sabres (5-12-4) had an unlikely burst of energy in the third period before nearly tying the game. Buffalo received third-period goals from Sam Reinhart and Evander Kane before Kyle Okposo's chance with 1:46 remaining came up just short; the puck made it to the goal line following a massive scrum but video review showed that it did not fully cross the line.
