Skinner scores 22nd goal, Sabres beat Coyotes 3-1

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Sabres didn't need overtime, for a change.

Jeff Skinner got his 22nd goal of the season, Casey Mittelstadt and Evan Rodrigues also scored and the Sabres beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Thursday night for their second consecutive victory.

It was the first time since Nov. 21 that the Sabres won in regulation. Skinner scored the winning goal in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory against the Los Angeles Kings to snap a five-game skid. Prior to that, Buffalo won twice in overtime and once in a shootout while matching a franchise record with 10 straight victories.
