The Sabres have started the season 9-0, which is technically a team record even though three wins came via shootout and would have counted as ties prior to last season. The 1975-76 Sabres started 8-0. Buffalo needs one more win to tie the NHL-record 10-0 start by the 1993-94 Toronto Maple Leafs.Jiri Novotny scored in the first period and Thomas Vanek got an empty-net goal Golden Tate III Jersey in the third for Buffalo, which was outshot by the Canadiens 27-26. Ryan Teez Tabor Jersey Miller improved to 5-0-1 in his career against Montreal.Mike Johnson scored for the Canadiens, who fell to 4-2-2 with their first home regulation lo s.The Sabres picked up a gift goal on only their second shot of the game at 9:42 when Novotny's wrist shot from just inside the blue-line went off Cristobal Huet's glove and fell behind him into the net.Andrei Markov lost the puck at the Buffalo blue-line on a power play and Drury went in alone down the left side to beat Huet for his 10th goal of the season 9:10 into the second period. Drury has seven goals in his last Nevin Lawson Jersey five games.Hard work behind the Montreal net allowed Daniel Briere to feed Pominville for a tip-in at 11:12.Radek Bonk stripped the puck from Henrik Talinder and his shot was tipped in by Johnson 9:06 into the third period to bring the sellout crowd of 21,273 to life.Vanek scored into an empty net with 19 seconds left. Notes - Montreal recalled centre Maxim Lapierre from Hamilton of the American Hockey League when Bonk suffered back spasms, but Bonk ended up playing. Mathieu Dandenault (leg) and Aaron Downey (concu sion) remain sidelined. . . Nathan Paetsch sat out Akeem Spence Jersey for Buffalo, which has used the same 20-man lineup for each of its first nine games.

EDMONTON - The final roster of the Edmonton Oilers is a little clearer after five players were cut following Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Vancouver Canucks.Forwards Rob Schremp and Kip Brennan, defenceman Taylor Chorney and goaltender Devan Dubnyk were all a signed to the Oilers' AHL affiliate in Springfield while centre Jordan Eberle was returned to his junior team in Darren McFadden Jersey Regina."Jordan had a terrific camp, and so did Rob for that matter," said Oilers head coach Pat Quinn. "We just had quite a few similar players. We are trying to change our appearance here and get some size and grit in our James Hanna Jerseylineup and that was a factor in our decisions."The only player that will have to clear waivers is Schremp, who admits that he is hoping another team will take a chance on him after five years of failing to catch on with the Oilers."It's disappointing not to make the club," said Schremp. "I'd be lying if I didn't say that I'm hoping someone will pick me up. I want to play in the NHL and if that doesn't happen Taco Charlton Jersey here I will take my chance anywhere. That's my goal and my dream. No disrespect to the Oilers, but this proce s gives you a chance to go someplace else if you aren't going to get a chance somewhere and I'm hoping that will be the case."In Eberle's case, the Oilers felt the hero for Team Canada at last year's World Junior Hockey Championships could use one more year in junior."They saw that I can compete at this level but they want me to go back to junior and be a leader there," said Eberle. "It's tough anytime you get cut but I'll go Charles Haley Jersey back down to junior and hopefully have a good year there and at the World Juniors. It's another year to learn and get better."The cuts take the Oilers down from 32 players to 27 with three players expected to be placed on the injured reserve in forwards Fernado Pisani, Marc-Antoine Pouliot and defenceman Theo Peckham.

BROSSARD, Que. - Sitting on the bench was no fun for veteran Roman Hamrlik.The 35-year-old defenceman spent all but two shifts of the third period as a spectator in Game 5 of the Montreal Canadiens' NHL playoff series against the Capitals in Washington, watching as his teammates staved off Joe Haden Jersey elimination with a gritty 2-1 victory.He hopes to be more involved when the Canadiens, trailing 3-2 in the best-of-seven series, try to stay alive again with a victory in Game 6 on Monday night at the Bell Centre (TSN, 7 p.m. ET).''I've been here long enough and I've Howard Wilson Jersey played so many games in the league, I should know better,'' Hamrlik said Sunday. ''I just have to compete and be ready every shift.''Last game, I didn't play much. We got a big win and I support the guys, but it's frustrating to watch the game from the bench, absolutely.''Marc-Andre Bergeron, his defence partner of late, played only one shift in the third as the Canadiens protected a lead against the Capitals' high-powered attack, knowing that with two full days off to rest between games they could ride their best performers hard.Hamrlik has not been among their best of late, although it hasn't helped that defence partner Jaroslav Spacek has mi sed Kenny Britt Jersey the last two games?and likely will be absent again on Monday night?with a suspected respiratory problem due to a virus.The first overall draft pick of the 1992 draft can barely remember the last time he was benched in a playoff game. It was early in his career with the Tampa Bay Lightning. But he said he is not injured, takes full responsibility for his play Shon Coleman Jersey and vows to do better.He was called out before Game 5 by coach Jacques Martin, who said the Habs ''need more'' from Hamrlik.In five games, he has three a sists but is a minus-5, tied for second worst on the club behind Bergeron's nasty minus-8.

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators got more bang out of their big guns than the Pittsburgh Penguins did on Saturday.In a matinee matchup before a sold-out Scotiabank Place crowd of 19, 561, Senators coach Craig Hartsburg and Penguins coach Michel Therrien created a marquee matchup, pitting the Senators' top line of Jason Will Clarke Jersey Spezza, Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfred son skating opposite the Penguins' one-two punch of Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby with Petr Sykora riding shotgun.The result: Ottawa came out on top with a 3-2 victory courtesy of Carlos Dunlap Jersey Spezza's second career hat trick and the Senators (10-10-4) won for the fourth time in five games to climb back to the .500 mark for the first time in a month."Hartsy challenged us before the game and said that we'd be matched up against them," Spezza said. "It's definitely nice to contribute on a big stage like this and get some confidence back."It's a big game for us. Now we have to build on it."Spezza notched all three of his goals on Penguins starting goaltender Dany Sabourin in the second period, staking Ottawa to 2-0 and 3-1 leads.The Senators held on to hand Pittsburgh (15-7-4) its second lo s in three games."We didn't start well and Spezza had his big second period and gave them the lead. It's a matter of momentum a lot of times," said Crosby, who Geno Atkins Jersey had an a sist to extend his point-scoring streak to six games, during which he has six goals and nine a sists.However, it was an otherwise frustrating day for Crosby and Co. In 10 career regular-season games against Ottawa, he has just one goal."We forced Vincent Rey Jersey them to play a lot in their own end," said Senators captain Daniel Alfred son, who left the game briefly in the second period after blocking a shot with his left foot but returned in time to set up Spezza's second goal.

PHOENIX - Edmonton Oilers goalie Nikolai Khabibulin on Tuesday withdrew an appeal to his extreme drunken Santonio Holmes Jersey -driving conviction, accepting a 30-day jail sentence.Khabibulin had appealed the jail term after being sentenced back in August of last year.But his Phoenix lawyer, Mark DuBiel, said Tuesday that Khabibulin wanted to drop the appeal because the case likely would have prevented him from going to the Oilers' training camp and could have lasted into the season."Despite a surances by legal counsel regarding the strength of my appeals case, I have decided to withdraw my appeal and proceed Anthony Johnson Jersey with sentencing," Khabibulin said in a statement. "Once completed, I eagerly anticipate a timely return to Edmonton for training camp, where I will strive to be the best player, teammate and citizen po sible."The 38-year-old played for Phoenix from 1996-99. He signed a four-year, US$15 million deal with Edmonton in 2009.DuBiel said Khabibulin will serve the first 15 days of his sentence in jail with work release and the other half of his sentence under house arrest. He will have to wear an ankle monitor Leonard Williams Jersey and is subject to random alcohol testing.Khabibulin also was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine and complete an alcohol program.Khabibulin was pulled over in his Ferrari near his Phoenix-area home on Feb. 8, 2010, after the car was clocked at 70 m.p.h. in a 45 Ben Ijalana Jersey m.p.h. zone.Police said an officer smelled alcohol and Khabibulin was arrested after a field sobriety test showed his blood-alcohol level at .164, more than double the legal limit.

EDMONTON - The former coach of the Edmonton Oilers says it's tough to leave a team midway through its rebuild.But in his first comments after his contract wasn't renewed, Tom Renney suggested that Ryan Murphy Jerseyhis focus on the team's future might have been part of his problem."I believe I coached with tomorrow in mind as opposed to today and that might have hurt me," Renney told reporters Wednesday."I really have a vision for Robert Thomas Jersey the team and felt that, even in some cases at the expense of my own opportunity or existence."Renney said he tried to coach with the team's future in mind."You make some decisions that suggest we've got to make sure that this happens so that'll happen down the road. That's not easy. Devon Kennard Jersey "That was the mandate for me."The Oilers announced last week that Renney wouldn't be back.He had joined the team for the 2010-11 season and finished with an NHL-worst 25-45-12 record. This season the team barely improved with a 32-40-10 record for second-last overall.Still, Renney said he believes Sean Donnelly Jerseythe team has a great future with a nucleus of young players acquired through the high draft picks those bottom-of-the-barrel finishes led to. He just wishes he could stick around to be part of it.

Its Randall Cunningham Jersey the most famous tongue snatching of all-time. In an incident that belies the much-celebrated relationship between man and dog, Edmonton Oilers coach Craig MacTavish once ripped the tongue of Flames mascot Harvey the Hound right out of the Calgary canines furry mouth. Seems like an ironic form of retribution given the one thing Harvey never does is verbally hound the visiting team. In his line of work, nobody does. Still, his antics behind the Oilers bench during a 2003 Josh Andrews Jersey installment of the Battle of Alberta were enough to incite MacTavish. But Harvey had his backers. In a show of solidarity for their fellow entertainer, many mascots showed up at the 2003 NHL All-Star Game, held just a few weeks after the incident, with newly attached tongues wagging out. Montreal fans have been treated to Youppis antics for many years in all seasons. The ambiguous collection of orange hair worked Montreal Expos baseball games from 1979 until the team moved to Chance Warmack Jersey Washington in 2004. He was the first mascot to be to sed from a Major League Baseball game (at the behest of Los Angles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda) and is one of the three mascots to be honored by baseballs Hall of Fame. Youppi hasnt mi sed a beat Brandon Brooks Jersey since moving over to the Bell Centre, thrilling Canadiens fans young and old with his energetic routines.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Ryan Getzlaf spent the final seconds of the Anaheim Ducks' playoff opener in the dre sing room with Kenny Bell Jersey a large ice bag pre sed to a nasty cut on his left cheek.Playoff succe s usually requires a little discomfort, and the Ducks got a good taste of both in their opener.Getzlaf had a goal and an a sist, Frederik Andersen made 32 saves to win his NHL playoff debut, and the Ducks held on for a 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night.Getzlaf, Kyle Palmieri and Mathieu Perreault scored in a dominant first period for the top-seeded Ducks, who began their playoff run on a dead sprint.
