‘”I understand that our game, we’re a little bit like gunslingers,” Ruff said. “I’ve said that, but I thought we had some lazy mistakes. I’ll put up with it [but] we’ve got players that don’t want to compete defensively. Somebody’s going to have to pay the price. They can come out of the lineup. They can sit.

‘Sabres are 0 for 22 on power play during past four games and have one PPG in 29 chances.’
'For the first time in at least 20 years, the Buffalo Sabres will turn a profit. As of March 6, a whopping 630,000 tickets had already been sold — with 13 regular season games to go. That’s 100,000 more tickets than compared to April 20, 2004. And at least an additional 20,000 tickets are expected to be sold by the end of the year.'
