Colorado Avalanche got back to winning ways after beating Buffalo Sabres 4-2.
Colorado had got to a great start to the season winning their first six games, before suffering their first defeat at the hands of Detroit. They have now rebounded immediately to beat the Sabres 4-2.
Ryan O'Reilly, Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog scored one goal each to put the Avalanche 3-0 ahead. Later, Paul Statsny also scored to complete the victory.
"We were talking in here that this team doesn't lose two in a row," Duchene said. "That's the attitude we want to have so it was great to bounce back and go to 7-1.
"Right now, we're rolling, we're feeling good. We've got to get as many points as we can cause we're going to go through some adversity in the season and we've got to be ready for it and get as many points as we can while we're hot."
Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 28 saves for the Avalanche. Coach Patrick Roy said that he was happy with the way his team reacted to their first loss of the season. "We wanted to jump on them right away," Colorado coach Patrick Roy said. "Our guys played well offensively in the first. In the second, I guess we started to back up."
For the Sabres, Cody Hodgson and Marcus Foligno scored. The Sabres rallied to put up a fight in the third period. They outshot Avalanche 16-4 during the period but Giguere made sure that the Avalanche remained on top.
Colorado will now move to Pittsburgh for their next game.
