Sabres The Better Team

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,

Buffalo remains the deeper, faster and more skilled team in this series. The Sabres would have won in the first overtime had Derek Roy’s shot inside the post bounced the right way rather than slither along the goal line. It also could have ended in regulation had off-ice officials given Karel Rachunek credit for a goal that bounced off his skate on a play Jagr started behind the Buffalo net.
We’ll see where it goes from here. The Sabres would be satisfied with a split in New York and a 3-1 lead going back to Buffalo for Game Five. Jagr has a reputation for playing tough at home and soft on the road. And, really, the Sabres actually have done a good job on him. Tallinder and Toni Lydman have been solid.
