Blue Jackets keep Sabres winless

Associated Press  |  Last updated October 10, 2013
Marian Gaborik had a goal and two assists and the Columbus Blue Jackets kept the Buffalo Sabres winless with a 4-1 victory on Thursday. Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno and Brandon Dubinsky also scored for Columbus. Sergei Bobrovsky made 26 saves for the Blue Jackets. Thomas Vanek scored for Buffalo and Ryan Miller stopped 29 of 33 shots for the Sabres, who fell to 0-4-1 on the season. It's the club's worst start since they went 0-5-2 to open the 1999-2000 season. Miller was playing his first game since injuring his groin last Friday against the Ottawa Senators. Atkinson opened the scoring with a goal at 1:51 of the first. Gaborik and James Wisniewski had the assists. The Sabres tied the game on Vanek's second goal of the season at 8:50 of the first. Foligno put the Blue Jackets back ahead 2-1 at 16:35 of the first on a backhand past Miller. And Gaborik got his second of the season at 18:48 to make it 3-1. Dubinsky scored at 2:11 of the third for his first goal of the season to make it 4-1. Gaborik and David Savard had the assists. Notes: The Sabres travel to Chicago to play the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night and the Blue Jackets host the Boston Bruins on Saturday afternoon.
