UNIONDALE, NY (WKBW) - John Tavares' natural hat trick was enough to down the Sabres on Saturday 5-3.

Thomas Vanek opened the scoring in the second period on a 5-on-3 power play.

But Tavares scored three straight goals later in the period. Blake Comeau and Michael Grabner also scored for the Isles.

Tyler Ennis and Jochen Hecht added third period goals for Buffalo.

The Sabres next host Montreal on Tuesday.
