Peyton Krebs has carved out a role within the Sabres for taking on this type of role in the lineup. Tonight he and the Sabres proved how valuable momentum can be.

Despite being down 2-0 after two periods and being booed off the ice by Buffalo fans the Sabres were not ready to quit. Taking the momentum from the Krebs fight the team rallied in the third period.

The Sabres scored on the powerplay five minutes into the third period to get themselves going. Another two goals throughout the next 12 minutes gave them the lead. Once they grabbed the lead they never looked back.
