'"Last year everything we touched turned to gold on offense," Sabres goalie Ryan Miller said. "This year we're going to have to work for it a bit just the way teams approach us. We have the talent," he said. "We have the scoring touch. It's just we're not going to get very many good looks. You got to make them count. We just have to know that going into the game."'
'“They’re the best right now, and we’re right at the bottom,” Sabres left wing Thomas Vanek said. “So if you want to kick-start your season, that’s the way to do it.”'
'The game will be Spezza’s first since signing a seven-year, $49 million contract extension earlier this month. The 24-year-old has one goal and 12 assists in 10 games.'
'We came home for Game Three, and we sat back a little too much.'
‘While it remains to be seen if Buffalo can unsheathe that once-lethal scoring ability and start the climb back into a playoff position, Senators head coach John Paddock said he believed a recovery was certain. “My guess is that they’re just still trying to find their way, like we were last year, after losing players,” Paddock said after practice yesterday. “They’re a pretty good hockey team.”‘
‘“We know we’re playing a desperate hockey club,” said Senators centre Jason Spezza after practice Wednesday at Scotiabank Place. “We know how we felt last year when we were in that position … all they’re thinking about is trying to get out of their slump and win hockey games. “They’re a dangerous hockey team.”’
