The Lindsay Muskies headed south of the border on Sunday to take on the Buffalo Junior Sabres, but the trip home was sure to be a long one after a 4-1 defeat.
The Jr Sabres were first to get on the board when Daniel Lafontaine was able to beat Muskie net minder Brett Chandler at 3:37. The assists went to Brenden Dunning, and Zach Evancho. The Muskies were then forced to kill off a Buffalo penalty before heading to a power play of their own. With the man advantage the Muskies were able to draw even when the teams leading goal scorer Logan DeNoble score from Austin Eastman, and Brandon Washer at 11:34. Before the period ended though the Sabres power play would regain their lead at 18:52 when Tim Kielich scored from Justin Cmunt, and Josh Gabriel.
At 13:02 of the second Ryan Kuhn gave Buffalo a 3-1 lead when he put one through the legs of Christopher Berger, and Bray Crowder. That was the only goal of the second.
The Muskies fans were looking for a big push from the Fish in the third but it just wasn't there as the Junior Sabres out shot Lindsay by a 13-4 count. Buffalo got the only goal of the period when Tim Nicksic put the game away with :59 seconds left. The goal was unassisted.
The Muskies are off now until Friday when they host North York.
