    Sabres back in conference finals

    http://http://www.buffalonews.com/101/story/70208.html

    Chris Drury and the Buffalo Sabres punched their return ticket to the Eastern Conference finals Sunday by eliminating the New York Rangers, 5-4, in Game Six.

    They will face the Ottawa Senators, who eliminated the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.


    “It feels pretty good to be back where we feel we belong,” Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller said.

    Buffalo’s attempt to reach the Stanley Cup finals last season was derailed by injuries and the Carolina Hurricanes, who won the Cup.




    I'VE BEEN WANTED TO SHARE MY PASSION FOR THE SABRES WITH YOU ALL AND THE NHL:tup: :tup:

    The hate will be real in Ottawa series

    By John Vogl NEWS SPORTS REPORTER

    http://http://www.buffalonews.com/214/story/70338.html

    There’s no need to manufacture hatred for the next opponent. It’s always been out in the open. The Buffalo Sabres hate the Ottawa Senators, and the feeling is most definitely mutual.

    The bitter division rivals will meet in the Eastern Conference finals, and the winner will play for the Stanley Cup. It would be tough for Broadway’s finest playwrights to craft a better script.

    Lundqvist solved as Sabres end Ranger run

    By Tim Graham NEWS SPORTS REPORTER

    http://www.buffalonews.com/214/story/70333.html

    The Buffalo Sabres were scared. They can admit it now. The New York Rangers couldn’t spook them anymore.

    The Sabres went into a place visitors couldn’t seem to win, faced a goaltender who generally looked unbeatable and surrendered three goals to the NHL’s most fearsome power play.

    Ruff hits the gas, revs up Buffalo offense

    http://http://www.buffalonews.com/214/story/70330.html

    A symbolic indication that the Buffalo Sabres knew they’d solved the New York Rangers, that they believed the rest of this series would be played on their terms, came when Lindy Ruff submitted his starting lineup for Game Six on Sunday afternoon in Madison Square Garden.

    Tim Connolly was at center, Daniel Briere and Jochen Hecht on the wings, the onus on offense. It was as if Ruff was telling the Rangers, whom he could expect to counter with Jaromir Jagr and their most dangerous line, that his team had found its legs. It was ready to fly. He was seemingly daring the Rangers to “Catch us if you can.”

    Hecht ends scoring slump at good time

    Winger’s two goals prove crucial in win

    By John Vogl NEWS SPORTS REPORTER


    http://http://www.buffalonews.com/214/story/70336.html

    It was tough to tell what was bigger as Jochen Hecht stood in the hallway of Madison Square Garden: his smile or his exhale. The pressure of going 10 playoff games without a goal weighed heavily on the Buffalo Sabres winger, but he finally broke through Sunday. He clearly relished the chance to breathe freely again.

    Hecht scored twice, including the game-winner, as the Sabres advanced to the Eastern Conference finals with a 5-4 victory over the New York Rangers. He had been in a brutal offensive slump, scoring in just three of the last 41 games.

    Buffalo 5, NY Rangers 4


    By IRA PODELL, AP Sports Writer


    Ryan Miller vividly recalls the walk he took last year after the crushing end to the Buffalo Sabres' season.

    The Sabres were in psition to steal the Eastern Conference title from the higher Carolina Hurricanes. Buffalo led Game 7 on the road in the third period before things fell apart.

    Miller and the Sabres returned to hockey's final four Sunday and are ready to take the step they tripped over a year ago.

    "It feels pretty good to be back where we feel we belong," Miller said.

    Chris Drury had a goal and assist in the Sabres' four-goal second period that erased an early deficit and sent Buffalo to a 5-4 victory Sunday over the New York Rangers in Game 6 of the conference semifinal series. Miller preserved the win with 32 saves, including 11 in a frantic third period.

    Second-period surge sparks Sabres past Rangers, into East finals

    Sabres suck why the hell do you like them? Their fans are all *******s and they've been crap for the past while. Sounds like you've jumped on the bandwagon.

    Anyway, as I said on April 14th in chiefsgal's thread, the Ottawa Senators are my darkhorse cup champions. They pretty much own Buffalo in every facet of the game other than goaltending. Fuc Buffalo the cup is coming to Canada where it belongs.

    Carrie you are a bandwagon hopper too :lama

    I am guessing it took you a while to figure that one out. Be honest and if it didn't I will give you a bit of credit but not a lot.

    PS: I actually hate the Senators but it's the Canadian code to root for another Canadian team if yours didn't qualify or is eliminated.

    Border clash: Sabres-Senators to renew hot rivalry
    http://http://www.nhl.com/nhl/app?articleid=304233&page=NewsPage&service=page

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -Sabres coach Lindy Ruff already knows there's enough bad blood between these teams and too much on the line

    So he's not about to make anything close to a derogatory comment about the Ottawa Senators, especially with the winner of this series going to the Stanley Cup finals.

    No matter that Chris Neil's blindside hit knocked out Buffalo co-captain Chris Drury and sparked an on-ice melee in February. Ruff considered it history.

    The coach also made sure to praise the Senators for winning the first two playoff rounds.

    "You look at it, I think the two best teams in the East are playing," he said, a day after the Sabres eliminated the New York Rangers with a 5-4 win in Game 6 of their second-round series.

    1) Buffalo Sabres vs. (4) Ottawa Senators

    Shawn P. Roarke | NHL.com Senior Writer

    http://http://www.nhl.com/nhl/app/?service=page&page=NewsPage&articleid=304219

    This Eastern Conference Finals series has all the ingredients to become a classic.

    Both the Buffalo Sabres and the Ottawa Senators hail from hockey-mad environs, cheered on by large, loyal followings in their respective cities that make game days an event not to be missed. The noise and the pageantry in the stands throughout this series will be hard to ignore.

    On the ice, the storylines will revolve around star players. Fortunately, each team is blessed with its fair share of game-breaking talent.

    In Buffalo, Daniel Briere and Chris Drury form a stunning one-two punch at center. Thomas Vanek had a team-high 43 goals, one of four Sabres to top the 30-goal mark in the regular season. Ryan Miller is among the best young goalies in the NHL universe at the moment, a player who has embraced the cauldron of playoff hockey extremely early in his career.

    Sabres follow Ruff, not destiny

    By Jerry Sullivan

    http://http://www.buffalonews.com/214/story/71062.html

    Do you remember how it felt after the Bills’ comeback win over Houston in January 1993? Everyone was convinced it was a sign that Buffalo was finally going to win the Super Bowl. It was magical. It was destiny.

    Well, we all know what happened when the Dallas Cowboys showed up. So I’ve learned to be suspicious of the destiny thing. Oh, I know it’s tempting. Don’t think the “D” word didn’t pop into my head when the Sabres won that fifth game in such dramatic, storybook fashion last Friday night.

    The Sabres are only halfway to their goal, and things are going to get tougher against Ottawa in the Eastern Conference finals. It really has nothing to do with destiny or fate. If the Sabres win the Stanley Cup, it will be because they had

    the better team, and the better coach.

    Miller learns to harness the fire inside

    Bucky Gleason

    http://http://www.buffalonews.com/214/story/72565.html

    That was it, Dean Miller thought, he was finished playing with the kid. Ryan had beaten his father senseless in their previous meeting, put an exclamation point on a fantastic round with an 8-footer for eagle on the 18th hole at The Majestic at Lake Walden just outside their home of East Lansing, Mich.

    A week later, on the back nine, Ryan was on the verge of implosion. He was torturing himself after every shot, cursing on each hole, throwing clubs, the whole bit. By the time he scuffed a green after his putt lipped out, his father finally had had enough.

    Yes, he understood Ryan was competitive. Always had been. He knew the frustration, too. Dean had a hot temper when he was young. But it didn’t change the fact that one of the most treasured fatherson activities had become an excruciating experience because the 16-year-old was so immersed in what, in winning? In himself.
