COLUMBUS — Christian Ehrhoff and Marcus Foligno scored short-handed goals to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 5-2 victory over Columbus on Saturday night, ending the Blue Jackets' franchise-record winning streak at eight.
Ryan Miller was almost flawless in goal for the Sabres, making 38 saves — standing particularly tall on the Blue Jackets' four fruitless power plays.
Matt Ellis, Steve Ott and Cody Hodgson also scored for the Sabres.
Derek MacKenzie had a goal and an assist and Mark Letestu also scored for the Blue Jackets.
Sergei Bobrovsky, who came in 9-0-0 with a 1.80 goals-against average and .940 save percentage in his past nine starts, was pulled after giving up three goals — including both short-handed tallies.
