BUFFALO, N.Y. — In their first game of the Prospects Challenge the Sabres prospects beat the New Jersey Devils prospects 6-4.
In front of a packed house at Harborcenter the Sabres scored the first six goals of the game before the Devils got on the scoreboard.

The Sabres got single goals from six different players. All six of the Buffalo goals came at even strength.
In the second period Arttu Ruotsalainen, Dylan Cozens and Will Borgen scored for the Sabres.
