'Package includes 4-300 level seats, Pizza Hut family feast with pizza, breadsticks and soft drinks, along with two Buffalo Sabres caps provided by New Era.'
‘The Sabres moved ahead 3-2 at the 2:08 mark of the third period courtesy of a nice individual effort by Dumont. Just over a minute into the frame, Boston’s Nick Boynton was whistled for interference and the Sabres skated with the man advantage. A wrist shot from the point by Connolly was nicely redirected home by Dumont, who fought for position near the top of the crease.’
‘J.P. Dumont deflected Teppo Numminen’s shot into the net to break a third-period tie Thursday night and the Buffalo Sabres scored two power-play goals to snap an 0-for-27 slump and beat the Boston Bruins 4-3.’
‘”If you show up every day with the right attitude and you work hard, I think I’ll start getting some bounces,” Drury said. “It’s certainly not from lack of chances. If you start getting zero chances, then you have re-evaluate things. (Scoring) is not the be all and end all. Hopefully I’m doing all the other things a leader has to do. There’s going to be times when your leaders are scoring. I can’t really go into a shell. I have to keep doing other things.”‘
‘Ruff on Wednesday hinted some minor tweaks were in the offing. He spoke of switching up a winger here or there to spark the Ales Kotalik-Tim Connolly-Maxim Afinogenov line. Ruff noted he might grant Adam Mair his first action. The coach also indicated backup goalie Martin Biron would play next week.’
‘The Bruins already are 0-4 against the Northeast Division.’
