BUFFALO, N.Y. — It was a day worth celebrating for the Buffalo Sabres.

On the team’s 50th birthday as a franchise, the Sabres scored five goals in the first period on their way to a 7-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night.

It was an offensive explosion that had been a long time in the works, according to coach Ralph Krueger.

“The last six games before this really had been games of good habits, and a lot of the offence that we were starting to create hadn’t really functioned that well with goals,” Krueger said. “I thought we had a deserved first period, kind of like the fruit of the labour from the week before almost seemed to pay off. We were hot.”

The Sabres buried five goals in the first period against goaltender Louis Domingue and never looked back in what ended as a 7 - 1 victory at KeyBank Center. The win marks Buffalo's second straight home performance of at least six goals, following a 6-4 victory over Toronto on Friday.

Jack Eichel had one goal and two assists, Johan Larsson had three assists, and Conor Sheary snapped a 19-game goal drought by scoring twice.

“We talked about coming out hard and playing our game and I think we did,” said forward Rasmus Asplund. “But I think what we really did good was when we scored a couple goals there, we just stayed with the game plan and kept going. Five in a period, it just shows what character we have.”

Asplund, Jeff Skinner, Victor Olofsson and Henri Jokiharju also scored for Buffalo, which improved to 13-10-5. Linus Ullmark made 44 saves.

The celebratory mood began before the game when the team honoured original owners Seymour H. Knox III and brother Northrup R. Knox, now deceased. Members of the Knox family, including Seymour’s widow Jean, were honoured with golden pucks before the game by current Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula. Buffalo was awarded an expansion team on Dec. 2, 1969.

  Miller lifts Sabres to 3-2 overtime win in Edmonton; Buffalo snaps two-game skid EDMONTON — It was a win that the Buffalo Sabres really wanted to go out and get for head coach Ralph Kreuger. Colin Miller scored in overtime as the Sabres emerged with a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday. The game marked the return of Kreuger to Edmonton after he coached the Oilers for the lockout-shortened 2013 season, before famously being fired over Skype and replaced by Dallas Eakins. "We talked about it in between periods and this morning and we wanted to get a win for him," said Kyle Okposo. "We know how much it meant to him. Things didn't end well for him here and he won't say it, but I know that this game meant a lot to him.

Asplund completed Buffalo’s first-period flurry to make it 5-0 with 58 seconds left on his first NHL goal. One day before his 22nd birthday, Asplund scored on a long shot from the bottom of the left circle.

“It’s a relief, of course,” Asplund said. “I think I’ve been playing really well the last couple games, I’m creating a lot of chances. I knew it was close and I got it.”
