Buffalo Sabres Go in Search of Another Milestone at HSBC Arena

January 8th, 2010 by Paul Taylor Leave a reply »

Recently, the theme for the Buffalo Sabres appears to have centered on records and milestones.

Two straight 4-3 victories over the Pittsburgh Penguins and Atlanta Thrashers marked the first time in their history that Buffalo had won consecutive games after recovering from a three-goal deficit. 

The three-goal blitz in the first 2:11 of their 5-3 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning was the fastest three-goal start in franchise history. 

Lindy Ruff earned his 465th victory with the win against Tampa Bay.  This moved him into sole position of fourth place for career wins with one team.  The Sabres' head coach now needs another 35 victories to match Toe Blake's 500 wins with the Montreal Canadiens.

(Speaking of Ruff, he was part of Buffalo's previous record for their quickest three-goal start, scoring the second of the Sabres' three goals in the first 2:17 during a game against the New York Islanders in 1980.)
