Just what Buffalo fans needed. Another replay review. Unlike the Bills' controversial "incomplete pass" Sunday, the Sabres conclusively allowed a tying goal with 1:09 to play Wednesday. That didn't make the situation any easier for Robin Lehner. "I guess it's something in Buffalo waters, you know?" the goaltender said after a 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Islanders. The review left Lehner in an expletive-tossing mood, one that Buffalo backers know all too well. "Everything is predetermined against us," Lehner said in Barclays Center. "It's not to be sulking or anything. We're not where we want to be or anything like that. It's just how it is. It's just how it is. The Islanders are in a playoff spot, and it is what it is. "We're one minute away from winning, 2-1, and we lose, 3-2." Lehner and everyone in Brooklyn believed he made the save of the game with 1:09 to play, keeping Buffalo's one-goal lead intact. Josh Bailey accepted a cross-ice pass and fired it toward the net, and Lehner dived to his left to get his glove on the blast.
