The Buffalo Sabres rang out the year the same way as they rang it in last January 1st. The Sabres, who are in danger of falling completely out of the playoff race, lost their Tux & Pucks New Years Eve contest with the Carolina Hurricanes 5-4. Buffalo opened 2001 with a 4-3 loss to the Boston Bruins. Maybe the Sabres can turn the page on the past year and begin a new chapter that will be more successful.
