SABRES NOTEBOOK: Power play is powerless without Vanek



Miller admitted their was plenty of traffic in front of the net throughout the night, including a waved off goal in which Jarkko Ruutu interfered with Miller.

“The refs picked up on it except for the second goal (scored by Shean Donovan),” Miller said. “I thought he was in the crease.


Teppo Numminen left the game with an upper-body injury and did not return. The team did not update his status for Friday night’s game against Boston. ... The loss was just the second the Sabres suffered in their retro jerseys. Buffalo is no 9-2 in the throwback uniforms. ... Kotalik’s goal was his first in eight games and just the second he’s scored in his last 12 starts.
