‘Stressing that his heart is fine, Numminen told The Associated Press on Wednesday that doctors said he’ll require more time off to allow his sternum to heal. Numminen learned the news Tuesday after Sabres doctors consulted with doctors at the Cleveland Clinic, where the player had the operation in September.’
'Regier says that Sabre doctors are just concerned with Numminen playing hockey before his heart is ready. Numminen will talk with the team when they return from their current road trip.'
'“I’m disappointed in losing another shootout,” said Miller, who fell to 1-3 this season. “Personally, I’m just [very angry] that the last [two] I’ve been in I’ve let in two out of three shots and cost us an opportunity to at least tie it up or win."'
'“I still like the contact part of the game, and hopefully I can bring that to the team while I’m here,” Kaleta said.'
'“Even with the beautiful pregame sight & songs, it still pained me that our own national anthem was neglected despite having two U.S. teams playing each other,” someone wrote under the pen name Michelle. “Why the omission?”'

‘”We didn’t give up,” said Jason Pominville who scored for the Sabres with 1:47 remaining to force the overtime. “We capitalized which was good to see. There is no quit in this team. That’s a good sign. We just have to keep working hard.”‘
'The first two shooters for both sides missed, before Ales Kotalik beat Brodeur with a backhander that he lifted over the netminder's stick. Gionta countered with his goal, and after Brodeur made a stick save on Thomas Vanek, Elias swung wide coming out of the neutral zone, and from between the circles beat Ryan Miller with a hard wrister that rang off the inside of the left post.'
'The Sabres offense has struggled immensely during this losing streak, scoring only 11 goals in seven games.'
