Game # 6: Sabres 9, Flyers 1


‘It wasn’t a candlelit dinner but Sabres coach Lindy Ruff will gladly settle for the generous gifts left behind by Ken Hitchcock’s turnover-prone defense in a rout that pushed Buffalo’s spotless record to 6-0-0 and looked every bit the continuation of the Sabres’ blowout-laced win in last spring’s Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.’
