'Drake gave the Blues a 1-0 lead, but his hit of Alexei Zhitnik into the boards changed the game. The Sabres' top defenseman, Zhitnik left the game after his second shift with of a bruised shoulder. Coach Lindy Ruff said Drake deserved "a major (penalty) and (to get) kicked out of the game." Neither happened, and Buffalo didn't have Zhitnik's 14 power-play points on its point.'
