Sabres Hold On, Advance To Second Round


‘The Islanders would finally get on the board early in the third on a goal by Miroslav Satan. Just two minutes later Thomas Vanek would set up Maxim Afinogenov to get the lead back to three goals. The Isles would not go away though as Trent Hunter made it 4-2 halfway through the third. Then Chris Campoli would make it 4-3 with seven minutes remaining in regulation. But the Sabres would hold on for the victory with Ryan Miller making several key saves down the stretch as Miller ended up with 30 saves in the win.’
