BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — It's never easy to play back-to-back games, let alone one at home and the next on the road. The Sabres were unable to win two games in two days, falling to the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 on Sunday night.

This year's third overall pick, Kirby Dach, scored Chicago's first two goals. The Blackhawks didn't need any more, but western New York native Patrick Kane added another on the power play early in the third.

The Sabres' lone goal was scored by Jack Eichel. Buffalo's captain has scored the Sabres' last five goals over two games.

Buffalo is back at home at KeyBank Center to take on the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night.
