Carter Hart turned aside all 28 shots he faced in a 3-0 win over Buffalo on Sunday. The Sabres were unable to get a goal on Brian Elliott, who made 23 stops on Saturday, and Hart followed up with another shutout performance on Sunday. This was a very good bounce-back effort for Hart after he was pulled on Feb. 21 against Boston at Lake Tahoe in his last outing. This marks his sixth victory in 12 starts this season.
