Pittsburgh (WKBW.com) The Buffalo Sabres gave up a two goal lead, and lost 3-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night. Owner to be Terry Pegula was in attendance at the Consol Energy Center. He was shown along side Sabres Managing Partner Larry Quinn during the MSG Broadcast.



Paul Gaustad scored just 17 seconds into the game to give Buffalo a 1-0 lead. Buffalo extended that lead when Mike Grier was credited with a goal at the 7:03 mark of the first. Things then went South.



The Penguins came out swinging in the second. Dustin Jeffrey put Pittsburgh on the board on a rebound goal that went off of the Sabres Tim Connolly. The Jeffrey goal was the first of three Pittsburgh goals in less then four minutes. Tyler Kennedy beat Ryan Miller to tie things at two. Matt Cooke scored off a turnover in the Buffalo end to give the Penguins the 3-2 lead.



Miller finished the night with 36 saves in a losing cause.
The Sabres host Toronto on Saturday.
