The Buffalo Sabres new captain had to prove his worth Saturday night in HSBC Arena. Before the opening game of the season, Stu Barnes had been appointed as the new captain of the Sabres. Unfortunately for Barnes and his teammates, Buffalo could only muster 1 goal against the Atlanta Thrashers in a 2-1 defeat. This time, Barnes was determined to prove his merit. Barnes came through, just in the nick of time as he gave the Sabres a 3-2 lead against the Ottawa Senators with only 57 seconds remaining. The lead held and the Sabres beat the Buffalo Bills in recording their first victory of the season.
