Watch: Sabres’ Bogosian hits rebound out of air for goal

Thursday March 17th, 2016

If at first you don’t succeed, just try again like Buffalo Sabres’ defenseman Zach Bogosian did against the Montreal Canadiens Wednesday night.  

Halfway through a first-period power play, Bogosian picked up a pass from center Ryan O’Reilly and fired off a shot on Habs goalie Ben Scrivens. The netminder made the initial save, but in doing so delivered a pop up—right back to Bogosian.

It looks like a bunt, but it was a clearly a home run, one that put the Sabres up 1-0.

This was Bogosian’s fifth goal and 19th point of the season, his first full season in Buffalo since being acquired with Evander Kane from Winnipeg.
