Ville Leino scored twice in the first 3:44 and Ryan Miller made 32 saves to help the Buffalo Sabres beat the NHL-leading Vancouver Canucks 5-3 on Saturday night, spoiling Zack Kassian's first games against his former teammates. Kassian, dealt to Vancouver along with Marc-Andre Gragnani in exchange for Cody Hodgson and Alexander Sulzer at the trade deadline Monday, scored his first goal for the Canucks and added an assist while playing mainly on the second line with Ryan Kesler and David Booth. Brad Boyes, former Canuck Christian Ehrhoff and Tyler Ennis also scored for Buffalo, while Miller had his shutout streak stopped at 1:55:37. The Sabres, 6-0-2 in their past eight games, moved within two points of eighth-place Winnipeg in the race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Booth scored twice for Vancouver. The Canucks lost in regulation for only the second time in the past 21 games.
