‘Friday’s win over the Panthers was another in a dangerous string of come-from-behind wins that keep making things interesting. The new recipe has put them at the top of the Eastern Conference with Atlanta falling on Friday, and it’s always hard to argue with success.’
‘And while Ryan Miller is listed first on the depth chart, Biron has slightly outplayed him through the season’s first month. Entering Friday’s game, Biron was 3-0-0 with a 2.61 goal against average and a .913 save percentage.’

‘”It’s one of those games as a goalie that you put the win in the bank and you just regroup,” Biron said. “I’m fortunate enough that the team in front of me kept going at it.”‘
‘”I was just in front screening the goal for Kotalik,” said Vanek. “I think he was shooting the one-timer and it hit (Mike Van Ryn’s) stick and broke it. I just picked it up and moved it to my forehand because I knew the goalie was moving.”‘
‘Roberts accosted an official on the ice after the game, drawing misconduct, gross misconduct, and unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. As per NHL rules, the incident will be sent to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman for review.’
