Overtime Time Goal Assist Assist Score
N/A          
Mark Messier scores his 14th early in the first on the power play, thanks to a failed icing attempt by the Sabres
Pierre Turgeon gets a 4 point night.  Scores on an inside shot off a nice pass by Vaive on the power play late in the 2nd period for the GWG
Craig MacTavish scored on a short handed breakaway, with an amazing solo effort, skating end to end to close the gap to 4-2
Christian Ruuttu puts the game away with 6 and a half minutes remaining, thanks to a giveaway on an attempted pass by Tikkanen
The disappointing Sabres hope that this effort signals a turn-around.  They had one win in their last seven contests.
