'The Canes were down 1-0 in the second period despite outshooting the Sabres when Jeff O'Neill took a harmless-looking shot on a line change. Sabres goalie Mika Noronen made the save, but the puck bounced so high in the air that Noronen did a full 360 spin looking for it. Francis jumped from the bench to the middle of the goal-mouth scramble and tapped the puck past Noronen for his sixth goal of the season.'
