'But full credit to Biron, he was completey into the game and sharp, something that has been a problem for him when coming into the lineup after a long layoff.'
'I was at a Buffalo Sabres game the other night and I could have sworn Sabretooth, the mascot, rappelled from the rafters of the arena upside down. How does he do this? Or did I drink too many tall beers?'
‘”I hadn’t played in a while, and getting down, 2-0, is not a very good way to start, but I didn’t stress too much about it,” Biron said. “I knew we had something inside of us.”‘
‘Biron has more value and therefore gives Buffalo a higher return in the trade market. Plus, he’s older and more expensive. Better? Yes, but $1.4 million better? No, not when Ryan Miller is going to play 60-plus games.’

‘”I can play whenever they want me to play. I told them that. I’m well rested,” Biron said jokingly. “I looked up with about 5 minutes left and saw 38, 39 shots and had to blink for a second to make sure which side it was.”‘
‘Buffalo is 4-0-2 in its last five meetings against Boston, including a 4-0-0 mark this season.’
‘Having not played since January 21st, Marty Biron showed no signs of rust on Saturday as the Sabres beat the Bruins 3-2. Biron matched a season-high with 40 saves and helped Buffalo steal two points from its Northeast rival.’
‘”I don’t think we really deserved that game but you’ve got to give credit to Marty stepping up the way he did tonight.”‘
