‘The game really wasn’t as close as the score indicates. The sellout crowd of 18,690 consistently targeted Buffalo goalie Patrick Lalime with boos after he allowed a couple of quick goals in the first period, but the blame should hardly be placed solely at Lalime’s door. The Sabres once again coughed up too many pucks, committing 19 turnovers compared to Minnesota’s seven. Buffalo also failed to take command against an opponent who lost 5-1 the previous night in Detroit.’
