'"It was one helluva effort," Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said. "We got the job done with special teams, and that was the game. We took advantage of our (power-play) chances early, and they failed to take advantage of theirs."'
'Campbell and Warrener, who are roommates, are being isolated at home and are under observation. As of Saturday, neither player had shown signs of being infected with the virus. Billittier said most infected individuals show symptoms within seven days of exposure, although in some cases it has taken up to 10 days for symptoms to appear.'
'But I also know effort when I see it and for more than a month the Sabres, particularly the young ones, are extending the effort.'
'"It just FEELS more like hockey here," said Briere, who was raised in Hull, Quebec, just outside Ottawa. "All my friends, my wife, everybody has been saying, "You have so much more energy, just in your voice, when we talk to you now. You look more happy.' When I was traded, it was like a new start."'
‘None of the three local teams has played the Sabres since Monday. The Devils finish the season in Buffalo April 6.’
'The Canes outshot the Sabres 29-15 through two periods and 10-0 in the third but were undone by three Buffalo power-play goals, including two five-on-threes.'
'“We've made some changes and there's some good chemistry,'' Ruff said. “There are guys having fun playing with each other. When you get on a little bit of a roll you want to stay on it.'''
'The Buffalo Sabres maximized their chances, relied on their special teams and leaned on their goaltender to record their first four-game winning streak of the season.'
'According to team officials, a relative of Campbell who lives in Toronto has been diagnosed with symptoms related to SARS. That person, whose identity was not immediately known, may have exposed Campbell and Warrener while visiting earlier this week.'
