'The Sabres had a three-game winning streak snapped despite the return of co-captain Chris Drury, who missed four games with a concussion after being blindsided by Ottawa's Chris Neil two weeks ago. Drury, playing on a line with newly acquired forward Dainius Zubrus, did have a solid scoring chance, but had his snap shot from the slot gloved by Peter Budaj.'

'Nathan Paetsch and Jason Pominville scored for the Sabres, who had their three-game win streak halted, and lost in the return of Chris Drury, who had been out of action four games since absorbing a hit from Ottawa's Chris Neil on February 22.'
'The forward reported little pain in his knee. Kotalik will see a doctor today and there's a chance that he could practice with the team tomorrow on a non-contact basis.'
'The music in which Lydman immerses himself is the exact opposite. Think loud heavy metal, with screaming guitars and wailing singers. Then think louder and heavier, with more screaming and wailing. It’s the type of music that might make hard-core rockers like Metallica and Guns N’ Roses recoil and blush.'
'The center practiced alongside new teammate Dainius Zubrus on Tuesday, with Michael Ryan on the left wing. It will be the first game for the trio, and it will be Zubrus’ first extended time on the wing since early in his career. He has been playing center for most of the past 3 seasons but said he played right wing for the first six years of his career.'
'Adversities mounted in the third quarter, as an unimaginable litany of injuries ravaged the roster and pushed virtually every prospect in Rochester into NHL duty. Through it all, Buffalo remained in front of the Eastern Conference and on pace to exceed their record-setting bounties of the 2005-06 season as the quarter came to a close.'
