Wednesday Night Hockey

The majority of teams are still on Bye Week until Friday or Saturday and so only two games were played on Wednesday night.

The Pittsburgh Penguins hosted the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Dallas Stars, back from their break, welcomed the Buffalo Sabres.

Buffalo Sabres v Dallas Stars

0-1 

Ben Bishop made 30 saves for the Dallas Stars for his third shut out of the season. He is now 11-0-1 against the Sabres.

Jamie Benn scored for Dallas, who were playing their first game since Jan. 19 following their Bye Week which started before the All-Star break.

The visitors thought they’d leveled things in the third period when Marco Scandella found the back of the net, it was however ruled a no goal for goaltender interference on Nathan Beaulieu. Head coach Phil Housley challenged the call, but it was upheld after a video review.

Linus Ullmark made 26 saves for Buffalo, who were playing the second of a back-to-back, they won against the Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.
