BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — This stretch of Sabres After Dark has been far from successful. Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Arizona Coyotes marks their third straight loss. Buffalo hasn't won since before the trade deadline.

Both new additions-- forwards Wayne Simmonds and Dominic Kahun-- picked up an assist apiece in the first period. The Sabres led 2-0 at the first intermission.

But the blue and gold collapsed in the second period. Two goals in less than a minute tied the game and the Sabres didn't find the back of the net for the rest of the game.

Victor Olofsson left the game with an injury and didn't return. The rookie forward had been back from a prior injury for seven games.

The Sabres' road stretch continues when they face the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.
