  • Text size: + -

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tyler Myers scored a go-ahead goal early in third period, helping Ron Rolston win for the first time as the Buffalo's interim coach, in the Sabres' 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

Myers made it 2-1 from the top of the left circle 52 second into the third after a Tampa Bay turnover. Rolston replaced long-time Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff on Feb. 20.

Ryan Miller made 30 saves and improved to 19-7-0 against the Lightning. The Sabres also got a goal from Cody Hodgson, while Thomas Vanek had two assists.

Miller made several quality saves during three short-handed situations, including a 5-on-3, during the second. He also had a point-blank stop on Steven Stamkos in the third.

Stamkos extended his goal-scoring streak to six games.
