First goal with the Sabres.

Saturday night was a night of firsts for a handful of Buffalo Sabres as the team beat the Phoenix Coyotes 3-0 on the road in their first of five games on the West Coast. The win improved the team's record to 3-2.

First overall draft pick Rasmus Dahlin finally got that first goal in the NHL after he followed up on a shot from Jeff Skinner to put the Sabres up 1-0 in the first period. Conor Sheary scored the second goal of the night, his third of the season on the power play, while Skinner added his first goal as a Sabre in the third period.

Goaltender Linus Ullmark recorded his first career shutout in his first start for the Sabres this season. He made 36 saves in his season debut.

The Sabres will take on the Las Vegas Knights on Tuesday night. Puck drops at 10 p.m.
