Vanek Nets Two In Game One Win


‘After no scoring in the first and plenty of chances on the power play, Buffalo finally got on the board with the man advantage. Thomas Vanek deflected a point shot from Dmitri Kalinin to give the Sabres a 1-0 lead with just under six minutes remaining in the second period. Just two minutes later Adam Mair set up Ales Kotalik on a break snapping it past Henrik Lundqvist. Buffalo would score its third goal in just 4:05 as Thomas Vanek patiently cruised in front of the net and scored his second of the night to make it 3-0.’
