'The Buffalo Sabres coach had to be pleased with what he witnessed Thursday night. His team turned in a gutsy effort, twice coming from behind to tie the score before defeating the defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning, 4-3, in a shootout.'
'Sabres coach Lindy Ruff on Wednesday said the club "in all likelihood" would waive a player to clear a spot for Mair on the 23-man roster, but after Thursday morning's skate Ruff declined to give Mair the green light against the Tampa Bay Lightning.'

'The Sabres won the shootout 2-0 as goalie Ryan Miller stopped St. Louis and Brad Richards. “I like that kind of challenge,'' Miller said. “It's a fun challenge for goalies.'''
‘In overtime, the Sabres could not convert on a pair of two-man advantages with less than two minutes to go, as the Tampa Bay penalty kill was up to the task. Buffalo had numerous chances in front, but Grahame stopped everything that came his way to send the game to a shootout.’
‘The game was tied after three periods 3-3 forcing overtime. The Sabres had plenty of chances to score in OT as the Lightning committed three penalties and gave the Sabres a two-man advantage. The Sabres, however, missed the a chance with the extra skaters as they went 0 for 9 on the power play for the entire game.’
‘”It’s early in the season and we have to work on the power play”, said Vanek.’
