Robin Lehner earns second straight shutout, as Sabres beat Canucks 4-0

Robin Lehner made 30 saves for his second straight shutout, and the streaking Sabres blanked Vancouver 4-0 on Thursday to send the Canucks into the all-star break kicking themselves for a lack of consistency.

Vancouver laid a decisive 6-2 beating on the visiting Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday, with the bulk of the scoring coming early in the game.

That kind of effort seemed like a distant memory Thursday, as Vancouver came out flat in the first and quickly fell behind 1-0 on Sam Reinhart's goal four minutes into the game.

Nicholas Baptiste, Kyle Okposo and Johan Larsson also scored for the suddenly defensive-minded Sabres (14-22-9), who have won three straight games for the first time this season, coming off a 5-0 win in Edmonton and 2-1 victory in Calgary.

But it was Buffalo making it 2-0 at 12:49 when a Jake Virtanen turnover led to Baptiste coolly backhanding the puck under Jacob Markstrom's pad for his first this season.
