    Two teams playing out the string met Thursday night in Buffalo where
the Red Wings shook off an early deficit to double-up the Sabres 6-3.

    Six different Detroiters scored as the Wings won their second straight.

    The Sabres took a quick 2-0 lead.  Jack Eichel (#25) wristed from the
right faceoff dot to beat Wings goalie Jimmy Howard cleanly on the far
side at 3:16/1.  Ryan O'Reilly (#21) banged-in a rebound for a power play
goal at 7:11/1.

    Dylan Larkin (#13) slid up the slot to convert a Evgeny Svechnikov pass
just 30-sec later to get Detroit on the board at 7:41/1.

    Darren Helm (#11) jumped on a loose puck at center ice to go on a solo
rush and score shorthanded to tie the contest 2-2 at 5:21/2.  Helm faked
Buffalo goalie Robin Lehner to the ice and tucked the puck into the lower
left corner.

    Anthony Mantha (#24) chipped in a juicy Joe Hicketts rebound at 16:26/2
to put Detroit ahead to stay at 3-2.

    The Sabres switched netminders at the start of the 3rd-PER but things
only got worse for Buffalo when Chad Johnson came on in relief.

    Andreas Athanasiou (#15) completed a 3-way passing play to fire into a
completely open net at 1:50/3.

    Evan Rodrigues (#7) countered for Buffalo at 4:51/3 to make it 4-3 with
a wrister off a Sabres left circle faceoff win.

    Danny DeKeyser (#6) scored at 10:10/3 when he swept in a Gustav Nyquist

    Svechnikov (#2) made it a 6-3 final at 16:59/3 when he banked a return
pass from Mantha into another vacated cage.

   Larkin, Mantha and Svechnikov each had a goal and an assist.  Frans Nielsen
earned two helpers.

    Howard had 29-SV, Lehner 17 and Chad Johnson 9.
