'Numminen said his condition is a swollen aorta. "It grows and eventually it will grow to the point they have to replace the valve," Numminen said. "That will be a surgery hopefully 10, 20, 30 years from now. We have to monitor it every year and see how fast it grows. Doctors say I'm OK to do what I do and there's no risks involved."'

‘”It’s just the nature of our team,” said Connolly, who sealed the game on the power play with his sixth goal, scored with just over three minutes to go. “We always want to work as hard as we can out there, and when we do that, we know that good things will happen.”‘
‘Sabres coach Lindy Ruff didn’t want to speculate on exactly how long Pyatt will be out, saying that it will be a “good period of time.”‘
‘”It’s good play from everybody,” Biron said. “Everybody’s stepping up, really being able to put them away in the third period, stepping up after they scored a big goal, Timmy (Connolly) scoring a big one.”‘
‘”That’s the most consistent effort from me all year,” Biron said. “I played at the level I wanted it to be. There was no letdown. There was no part of the game I wasn’t happy with.”‘
‘The Sabres have acquired 11 points out of a possible 12 in their last six games and continue to creep back up the Eastern Confrence standings. They trail the Rangers by six points for first in the confrence and Ottawa by five for first in the Northeast division.’
