Scoring first period goals has been a problem for the Buffalo Sabres this season.
Entering their game against St. Louis on Tuesday night, they had scored just three goals in the opening period all season. Considering only two other teams, Florida (9) and Carolina (8), had fewer than 10 this season, that's obviously a pretty bad number.
That's partly why it was so surprising to see Tyler Ennis score just 10 seconds in.
It's only the third time this season Buffalo has scored the first goal in a game.
The lead would not last long for the Sabres, as the Blues scored the equalizer just a minute later and recorded 11 of the next 14 shots.
