'"This stretch is extremely demanding, four games in six nights," Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff said. "We threw everything we had at them in the second period, and if not for four or five saves by (Nikolai) Khabibulin, its over. We would have liked to have gotten another point out of it. We thought two out of three was going to be a good number and we ended up with three out of six."'
