Boston 4, Buffalo 3 (SO)
Surprise, surprise! Another player goes down....this time Ales Kotalik with a lower body injury....looks like Dr. Aquino is going to have his hands full over the next couple of weeks with the endless stream of Sabres headed into his office....what next....Lindy Ruff gets taken out by fallout from a check into the players bench?
Jochen Hecht drops the gloves! I haven't been this surprised to see someone in a brawl since, well.....I got tackled from behind in the middle of a kickball game during recess in elementary school and started throwing haymakers.
Danny Briere lights the lamp....though the red light didn't go on until after the period ended....his can't miss shot of a wide open net seemingly missed with under a minute to go. But it was reviewed following the end of the period and was found to have crossed the goal line before Tim Thomas could get a stick on it. They were able to go back and count the goal because there hadn't been another whistle after that until the period ended....still wondering why they couldn't tack on the remaining fifty seconds or so onto the next period like they did earlier this season during a game when a glass panel needed to be repaired.....
The shoot out was a dandy, a true goaltenders duel as no one scored on either side until Petr Tenkrat slid one under Ryan Miller in the eighth go around....
Drew Stafford scores.....the kids are pitching in.
Hey....Andrew Ference!!! Didn't I just see you here a week ago in a different jersey....thought so.
