'The Sabres have now lost five of their last seven game and they are winless in their last three. They have a chance to avenge their loss on Wednesday when the Bruins come to the arena on Wednesday night.'

'"You can't win every game every year, but we've got to stop the bleeding now," said center Derek Roy, who scored Buffalo's first goal of the game. "We've got to get back to just working."'
'With five losses in the past seven games and their specialty teams continuing to let them down, the Sabres are fighting increasing frustrations, while trying to desperately regain some of the momentum and swagger that they displayed on a regular basis earlier in the season.'
'"Thomas made some huge saves over there as did Ryan," said Buffalo Derek Roy, who had a goal and an assist. "We had some opportunities that would have been goals and they just took them right away. Good goaltending goes a long way."'
‘Derek Roy and Jochen Hecht scored for the Sabres, losers of a season-high three straight.’
‘In the scoreless second and third periods, Miller and Thomas traded spectacular saves to keep the game tied. Both sides engaged in a frantic overtime session, but did not come up with any quality chances due to the fatigue of an emotionally draining contest.’
'The Sabres' last day off was Jan. 7. Unless coach Lindy Ruff breaks from his practice routine this week, the Sabres' next chance to spend a day off the ice won't come until Sunday. That would be 13 straight days on the ice in five different rinks in four cities.'
'Coach Lindy Ruff said Sunday the Sabres did not yet have word on whether the injury would be long term or short term. It is believed to be a shoulder injury.'
'Marc Savard has eight points in the last four games.'
