from the Buffalo News,
“They’re a balanced attack,” Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said Sunday. “It’s come from a lot of different places. They’ve got younger guys that have been in the scoring department, but I think it’s overall balance. They’ve played sound defensively, and their goaltender has been very good.”
The sixth-seeded Rangers are paced by Jagr, who figures to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer when he hangs up his skates. The 35-year-old won back-to-back Stanley Cups with Pittsburgh during his first two seasons. Mario Lemieux did the bulk of that work, and Jagr wants to return the favor to the youngsters on his team.
“I love the players I am playing with,” Jagr said last week. “When I was young, Mario gave me the Cup. I always wanted to help the younger guys like Mario helped me.”
