Kyle Okposo scores 2 in Sabres' 2-1 win over Winnipeg Jets

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Kyle Okposo hopes he and the Buffalo Sabres provided general manager Jason Botterill a reason to rethink his approach a day before the NHL's trade deadline.

For a team that looked like it was in need of major roster overhaul as recently as two weeks ago, the Sabres have suddenly begun showing signs of an identity. After a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday, they're back in the fringe of the playoff race.

"I think we made Jason's job a little bit more difficult, which is what our goal was," said Okposo, who scored twice, including the go-ahead goal 7:47 into the third period. "We like the group that we have in here. I think we've shown some resilience that's been missing in the past."
