'Buffalo, however, emptied its net to gain a 6-on-5 advantage and cashed in with 40 ticks on the clock. Brian Campbell maneuvered around the perimeter of the zone and faked two shots before dishing the disc into the slot, where Briere punched it into the wide open right side of the net to induce overtime.'

'Briere's winner came on the power play after Brian Pothier hooked Afinogenov to prevent a clearcut breakaway. Alone at the right post, Afinogenov set up the decisive goal when he fed a pass through the crease to a wide-open Briere, who jammed it in the open side.'
‘”It’s concerning to me,” said Golisano, who owns the Buffalo Sabres. “I’m very interested in the topic. How I would get involved is undetermined at this point.”‘
‘Losing the left winger affects the Sabres in numerous ways. First off, the connection between Hecht, Briere and Dumont is impeccable, and the trio constitutes the team’s best line when they’re together. Losing a piece throws them off a step. The left wing position also has had the least-productive depth.’
‘”Tucker knows that he’s not going to be able to hurt a guy like Mike Grier,” Sabres co-captain Daniel Briere said Tuesday. “Mike Grier’s much bigger than him, so he figures he goes after somebody that maybe’s not a fighter as much or is not going to be as big to defend himself. That’s just the type of player he is. It’s no surprise there.”‘
‘Season Series: Senators lead, 5-0-0-1.’
'The Leafs play the Sabres one more time this season, on Easter Sunday in Buffalo. Tucker said that if there is a rude reception waiting for him at the HSBC Arena, he'll be prepared to deal with it. "I'm going to show up in Buffalo and play the game," he said. "I always look out for my own battles. If there are things that come up within the game that they don't like, obviously I'll stick up for myself."'
