Thomas Vanek…5 goals in 3 games…two of which came while shorthanded…Vanek looks like he has taken his game to an entirely different level so far.
Lindy Ruff got his 400th victory as a coach.
Buffalo clamped down on New York tonight defensively…only allowing the Rangers 20 shots.
Honestly, after the Rangers took a 1-0 lead, I thought the Sabres were in trouble…but…Buffalo just outworked and outplayed New York the rest of the way.
Nice win considering the Sabres are down some players as well.
Buffalo returns home to play Vancouver on Friday.
