Sabres beat Red Wings 4-3
(DETROIT) - When the Red Wings finally caught up to the Sabres, Buffalo coach Dan Bylsma advised his team not to get concerned over the sudden momentum swing. Less than 30 seconds after Buffalo let Detroit tie it, Evander Kane scored his second goal of the game to lift the Sabres over the Red Wings 4-3 on Tuesday night and get Bylsma his 300th NHL victory.
Kane got his fifth goal in seven games 8:29 into the third by taking a cross-ice pass from Brian Gionta and beating goalie Petr Mrazek with a high wrist shot to the glove side. The Wings rallied from 2-0 and 3-1 deficits and thought they had tied it late when Frans Nielsen appeared the score, but the whistle had already been blown because goalie Robin Lehner was hurt after being struck in the throat by a teammate's stick. Detroit tied a season high, firing 43 shots at Lehner, 20 of them in the third period. Detroit fell behind for the 10th straight game when Kane gave the Sabres a first-period lead. Tuesday also marked the sixth consecutive game for Mrazek in which he's surrendered three or more goals. The Wings got on the board at 14:46 of the second period when Henrik Zetterberg threw the puck toward the net from the corner of the rink and it banked in off Lehner's shoulder. Before the period was done, the Wings scored again. Dylan Larkin's shot hit teammate Drew Miller in the leg in front of the Buffalo net. The puck landed at Miller's feet, and he snapped a quick shot past Lehner. Thomas Vanek's third-period power-play goal tied it at 3 and ended a 0-for-28 drought for Detroit with the man advantage.


Winnipeg knocks off Chicago 3-1
(CHICAGO) – The Winnipeg Jets are making a habit of rising to the occasion when they play the Chicago Blackhawks. Blake Wheeler, Mark Scheifele and Drew Stafford scored and Connor Hellebuyck made 34 saves to help Winnipeg beat Chicago 3-1 on Tuesday night. Jacob Trouba added two assists, and the Jets won their second straight and fourth in five games to improve to 17-17-3. Winnipeg beat Western Conference-leading Chicago for the third time in three tries this season, outscoring the Blackhawks 9-2 over those games. The Jets outskated and outworked the swift, talented Blackhawks for much of the night, beating them to loose pucks. Then the scoring chances seemed to take care of themselves. Artem Anisimov scored his 15th goal in his return from missing three games with an upper-body injury, but Chicago lost its third straight for the first time since last March. The Blackhawks consecutive defeats (0-2-1) have come at home, while surging Minnesota has cut into Chicago's conference and Central Division leads. Chicago's Corey Crawford blocked 31 shots in his second start since returning from an appendectomy that cost him 10 games. Right wing Marian Hossa missed his second straight game after being placed on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 20. The 37-year-old forward, who leads the Blackhawks with 16 goals, has been out since getting an upper-body injury early in a loss to Ottawa a week ago.

Red Wings, Hurricanes re-schedule game
(RELEIGH, NC) - The NHL says the Detroit Red Wings-Carolina Hurricanes game that was postponed last week has been rescheduled for March 27. The league made the announcement Friday. The rescheduled game means the teams will play on consecutive nights in Raleigh, North Carolina. They already were scheduled to play each other March 28. The game Monday night was postponed because the ice at PNC Arena was unplayable. A Freon leak in the cooling system was discovered earlier in the day and was repaired, but not in time to start the game. The normal ice temperature at the start of a game is 18 degrees, but the temperature when the game was postponed was 24.

No. 2 Notre Dame women beat Chattanooga 79-58
(CHATTANOOGA) - The first triple-double of Notre Dame guard Lindsay Allen's career came in typical Lindsay Allen fashion. This unselfish senior needed a reminder to get the necessary points for the triple-double after already having enough assists and rebounds. Allen had 11 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists Tuesday in the second-ranked Fighting Irish's 79-58 victory over Chattanooga. Allen already had 12 assists by the end of the third quarter and got her 10th rebound with 9:26 remaining, but she didn't reach double-digit points until sinking a jumper with 2:40 remaining. Her final five points came in the last four minutes of the game.
Allen's triple-double was the sixth in Notre Dame women's basketball history. Skylar Diggins had two triple-doubles. The other three came from Mary Gavin, Sara Liebscher and Marina Mabrey. Her 11 rebounds represented a career high. Her 12 assists matched a career high. Brianna Turner added 24 points as Notre Dame earned its 15th consecutive road victory. Notre Dame was making its fourth stop on a six-game road stretch that continues Thursday when the Irish open Atlantic Coast Conference play at North Carolina State. Notre Dame (12-1) hasn't lost a true road game since falling 91-81 at eventual national champion Connecticut on Dec. 5, 2015. Chattanooga (5-8) trailed 26-12 at the end of the first quarter before playing Notre Dame relatively even the rest of the way. Queen Alford led Chattanooga with 24 points.

Michigan State beats Minnesota 75-74 in OT
(MINNEAPOLIS) - Fueled by a better-late-than-never breakout game by Alvin Ellis III, Michigan State snapped into form after halftime of the Big Ten opener. Still-developing Minnesota was left with a stinging defeat. Ellis made two free throws with 10.6 seconds left in overtime to finish with a career-high 20 points and give Michigan State the lead, capping a 75-74 comeback victory by the Spartans over Minnesota on Tuesday after the Gophers led by 13 points at the break. Michigan State, the worst foul-shooting team in the Big Ten, was 8 for 20 from the line until Ellis stepped up with two swishes following a non-shooting foul by Nate Mason. Nick Ward had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Spartans (9-5, 1-0), who have been trying to survive without standout freshman Miles Bridges, who is out with a severely sprained ankle. Mason, who led the Gophers with 18 points, misfired on his off-balance jumper from the lane at the buzzer that would've won the game. Jordan Murphy had 12 points and a career-high 21 rebounds, but Minnesota (12-2, 0-1) lost its fourth straight conference opener under coach Richard Pitino.

Lions want NFL to review “illegal tackle” of Elliott
(ARLINGTON, TX) – Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said late Monday night he plans on sending defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson's third-quarter unnecessary roughness penalty to league officials for review. Robinson was flagged while tackling Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott and potentially body-slamming him to the ground. Depending on the vantage point, though, it could have also been viewed as a hard, but legal, tackle. The 15-yard penalty came on a drive that eventually led to a Dez Bryant touchdown pass to Jason Witten to give the Cowboys a 35-21 lead en route to their 42-21 victory over Detroit on Monday night. Lions head coach Jim Caldwell says he doesn't get into talking about officials and the calls they make. He says he simply wants to voice his opinion on the matter. After the game, Elliott told reporters that Robinson had been playing dirty the entire game. Robinson, who started Monday night's game, had four tackles and a tackle for loss. Elliott had 12 carries for 80 yards and two touchdowns along with one reception for 12 yards.
