Sabers beat Ducks behind three goals in third period

The Buffalo Sabers earned their second straight home win by defeating the Anaheim Ducks, 6-3, on Saturday afternoon at the KeyBank Center. With the win, Buffalo improved to 23-19-2 on the season.

The Sabers played pretty well for the most part, but were sloppy in the second period, allowing Anaheim to score all three of their goals. Buffalo scored three goals in the final period to pull away.
