‘Briere says the Sabres realize the climb back is a long one, but they can’t afford to get caught up in the big picture. They have to take the one victory for what it is and aim to win the smallest of battles to get closer in the series. “We’re going home and trying to win the next period,” the Sabres co-captain said. “It’s about short-term goals. We’re very happy with tonight. The fans (in Buffalo) have been there for us. Last game, they pumped us up so early in the last game that we scored the two early goals. It’s too bad we lost it for them.”‘
