BUFFALO, N. DeMarcus Cousins Jersey .Y. -- For once, Buffalo Sabres coach Dan Bylsma couldnt complain about his teams lack of offense.Anders Nilsson stopped 46 shots, plus three more in the shootout, to stymie the Sidney Crosby-led Pittsburgh Penguins.And one goal in regulation, plus minor league call-up Cal OReillys shootout tally, were just enough for the offensively challenged Sabres to pull out a 2-1 victory Saturday night.Well, it doesnt really matter at this point in time who its against, Bylsma said. But its a win we desperately needed and against one of the better teams, if not the best team, in the league.William Carrier scored in regulation for Buffalo, which hasnt scored more than twice in 10 straight games, dating to a 3-1 win at Winnipeg on Oct. 30.In snapping an 0-4-2 skid, Buffalos victory came on the heels of a 4-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Friday after which Sabres forward Evander Kane expressed frustration about his teams lack of offense. He sarcastically said Buffalo had become the joke of the NHL because opponents needed only two goals to beat them.The difference on Saturday was the Penguins were unable to score twice.It took Pittsburgh 31 shots before Crosby beat Nilsson with a power-play goal to tie the game with 14:14 remaining in regulation.Its just one of those games where you leave feeling like you deserve better, said Crosby, who scored his 12th of the season and the 350th goal of his career. Ultimately, we have to find a way to bury a few chances. ... But he made some good saves. You have to give him credit.Pittsburgh has alternated losses and wins over its past five games since a 9-2-2 start, and was coming off a 3-2 overtime win at the New York Islanders on Friday night.The Penguins also lost to Buffalo for the first time in 10 meetings, since a 4-2 loss at Pittsburgh on April 23, 2013.Nilsson was solid in making just his second start in 11 games, and first since a 41-save performance in a 2-1 overtime loss to New Jersey on Nov. 11.Nilssons toughest saves came during overtime.A minute in, he kicked out his right pad to stop Phil Kessels drive from the right circle. A few seconds later, Nilsson squeezed his right arm just in time to trap Trevor Daleys shot.His best save came with 2:55 left in overtime, when he kicked out his left pad at the last moment to foil Kris Letang on a breakaway.After stopping Crosby and Evgeni Malkin on Pittsburghs first two shootout attempts, Nilsson sealed the win by stopping Letangs attempt to beat him through the legs.Obviously, they do have some very esteemed guys and some very good players in their lineup, Nilsson said. I tried to be as patient as possible and let them make the first move and try to make the save. And today I got lucky and was able to do that.OReilly scored on Buffalos third attempt by breaking up the right wing before cutting to the front of the net and beating Marc-Andre Fleury with a snap shot to the glove side.The goal came on the same day OReilly was called up from Buffalos AHL affiliate in Rochester. And it wasnt lost on Bylsma that OReilly has an established reputation for being a shootout specialist.OReilly has scored on six of 13 shootout attempts, with three of them game-deciding goals.Fleury was otherwise solid in stopping 32 shots through overtime.He was particularly sharp 2 minutes into the third period, when he got his glove up to stop Kanes shot from the left circle. Fleury then got across to his left to bat down Brian Giontas off-balance shot from the slot.Game notes Crosby has 15 goals and 50 points in 32 career games against Buffalo. ... Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist missed his second game with a concussion. Coach Mike Sullivan said Hornqvist skated on his own earlier in the day, but there was no timetable yet for his return. ... Aside from OReilly, the Sabres recalled forward Cole Schneider from Rochester. OReilly was the AHLs scoring leader with 18 points (three goals, 15 assists), and Schneider was tied for second with 17 (seven goals, 10 assists). ...

Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in the Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to the travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey, that is. LOS ANGELES -- Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., the biggest names in Mexican boxing, are in talks to meet May 6 -- Cinco de Mayo weekend -- on HBO PPV, both camps told ESPN on Thursday.Were in talks, weve been talking for about a month, Eric Gomez, president of Golden Boy Promotions, Alvarezs promoter, said. Theres interest on both sides.The biggest obstacle is the weight. If a deal is hammered out the weight would probably 164 or 165 pounds. Alvarez has never boxed above 155 pounds. Chavez has been 167? or heavier for his past five fights dating to 2013.Alvarez, a reigning junior middleweight titleholder, is the former middleweight champion but fought those bouts at a catchweight of 155 pounds rather than division limit of 160 pounds.Chavez is a former middleweight titleholder but he has been fighting in the 168-pound super middleweight division in recent years, and even slightly heavier.The catchweight is being negotiated, Gomez said. Canelo has a limit he wants, they have a limit Chavez wants, so its being negotiated.Besides the weight there is also the issue of the rancor between Golden Boy and Chavez adviser Al Haymon, whom Golden Boy is suing for $300 million. It filed the federal lawsuit in May 2015 alleging that Haymon and his various business entities have repeatedly violated antitrust laws and the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act.If the fight can be made it figures to be a big one. There was a lot of talk about the showdown a few years ago, before Chavez, one of the fighting sons of Hall of Famer Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., was easily defeated by Sergio Martinez in their 2012 middleweight world championship fight and eventually moved up in weight.It would be a good fight. The Mexican fans would really get behind it, Gomez said. Its two really big names. Were far apart, but were in talks. Hopefully, we can make it.Chavez (50-2-1, 32 KOs), 30, has failed to make weight for several fights, had issues outside the ring and went just 3-2 in a five-fight stretch. AAfter 17 months out of the ring, he returned on Dec. Authentic Warriors Jerseys China. 10. He made weight (167.9 pounds) and looked good in a one-sided 10-round decision against fringe contender Dominik Britsch.Chavezs camp said it was also hopeful they could make the match.He had some bad people in his life making bad decisions and giving him bad advice, said Sean Gibbons, Chavezs longtime matchmaker. Julio was derailed from the path that he needed to be on. Hes back on the right path. He made weight comfortably for Britsch. He made the weight so easy. The contract was 169 but he said, Im coming in under to show that Im back and serious. He proved to the people hes serious and that hes for real. The time is right and he can make the weight. The fight with Britsch was to prove to the public that he is ready for Canelo or (Gennady) Golovkin.Gibbons, who said he would like to see the fight contracted at 165 pounds, said Chavezs attorney, Guadalupe Valencia, reached out to Golden Boy to gauge the interest in making the fight and there was interest.Alvarez (48-1-1), 26, dropped down to junior middleweight in September and knocked out Liam Smith in the ninth round to win another title. Alvarez suffered an avulsion fracture in his right thumb, forcing him to give up a Dec. 10 date for his next fight. Now he and Golden Boy are talking about a possible February bout, although it is more likely he will just sit out until a May 6 fight, whomever it is against.If he wins that bout Gomez said the hope is that the long-awaited showdown with Golovkin will take place in September. Gomez said Golden Boy and Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions have been talking about a deal, but that the biggest obstacle is Golden Boys insistence on paying Golovkins side a flat fee -- at least $15 million -- while Golovkins side wants to have a stake, as much as 40 percent, in the event.
