Blues can bounce back against a Sabres team they've dominated

Buffalo closes the slate Monday night at home with its second meeting in four days...

On the field, Ezekiel Elliott is scaring opposing defenses. He has been doing so since last season, and it got amplified by his performance in the season’s last three games against quality defenses that he torched.
