Biron’s The Sabres’ Go-To Guy—For Now

from the Niagra Gazette:
Unlike his early years, when Biron would stand on his head through the first 58 minutes, only to surrender the game-losing goal in the final moments, Marty’s recent work has been marked by timely saves, even if they come after a few sloppy goals. “I’ve been giving up a lot of goals lately, but we won,” Biron said. “The big thing is at the end of the day, you want to finish plus one. Teams are winning 7-6 and other teams are winning 2-1. “It doesn’t matter. Sometimes as a goalie, you go home and think ‘what was that all about?’ But you won.” There’s never a sense that the Sabres are pressing to help Biron, even though he’s clearly the second goaltender in the franchise. With their top defensive pairing still out, Buffalo didn’t change the plan one iota, worrying first about offensive transition. “It’s the same as last year, we didn’t really care who was playing back there, we were comfortable and confident,” Teppo Numminen said. “I don’t think anybody notices a difference.”
