No backhanded compliments for Lydman


'"I don't know how he does it," says smiling Sabres goaltender Marty Biron. "All I know is that there isn't another guy I would want in my end of the rink to clear the puck for me with that backhand. He does it so calmly too. He's done it during games. The amazing part is how accurate he is with it. Toni can be on either side of the rink and backhand the puck almost perfectly to center ice. He does it so well that a couple of our forwards break down the ice and wait for the puck to land so they can get a breakaway.And that's worked to."'
