New York managed two goals on six power-play opportunities here, turning a dominant first-period effort into a solid win.
Rasmus Ristolainen, D, Buffalo Sabres: Ristolainen posted a goal and an assist in the Sabres’ first victory of the year, a 4-2 effort over the Blue Jackets at First Niagara Center on Monday.
Ryan O’Reilly also logged a score and a helper, getting the Sabres to 1-2-0 thus far.
Chad Johnson got his first victory with Buffalo, posting 20 saves. He was picked up from the Islanders in a trade this past March.
Michal Neuvirth, G, Philadelphia Flyers: The Flyers and Panthers played a very tight game last night at Wells Fargo Center in Philly. Neuvirth came up with 31 saves in a 1-0 shutout, with Brayden Schenn scoring the game’s lone goal.
This was the eighth career NHL shutout for Neuvirth, and the Flyers’ first 1-0 win in a home opener since way back in their first season of 1967.
