'"My skates were totally shot and I had to get them sharpened which is something I totally hate because I hate getting undressed. Then I had to get dressed again and do all my tape around my ankles. I go back, didn't get too many shots and then the glass broke, so there's another 10 or 15 minutes, so you're starting to get cold. Sometimes those nights go against you, some nights they go for you. Maybe that's what I needed."'

'Biron "was phenomenal," said Senators center Jason Spezza, who scored two goals but not without some fortuitous caroms. "He's not a backup. You know Buffalo's got a great one-two punch, and every night you're going to get a goalie on top of his game."'
‘If Biron is unhappy about being the Sabres’ No. 2 guy, he wasn’t showing it yesterday, although the call to start the game may have helped his mood. He said reports that he had demanded a trade were greatly exaggerated. “I never did, I never will (ask to be traded). I’m part of a team and that’s what it’s all about.”‘
‘But that doesn’t change the fact that Pominville is making an impact — his ice time is up and he’s getting more important shifts. Lindy Ruff is using him with more than just Thomas Vanek and Jiri Novotny, too.’
'Chris Drury had a goal and an assist and Daniel Briere had two assists to help Buffalo extend its season-opening winning streak to three with a 4-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.'
'Biron made his first start of the season for Buffalo, which has started a season 3-0 for the first time since the 1994-95 campaign.'
'The Sabres next play on Friday night in Detroit to face off with the Red Wings.'
'Biron recorded his first victory since the final game of the 2005-06 regular season…'.
'Certainly, a 3-0 burst out of the gates, particularly in the span of 4 days against quality opponents, is an achievement worthy of some respite away from the rink. However, Ruff and the team are fully aware that they have portions of their game that need adjustment and more refinement, such as reviving their thus-far dormant power play as well as ridding themselves of an alarming habit of taking excessive penalties.'
