Atlanta Ends Sabres Bid At History

Thrashers put an end to Sabres’ bid for NHL record start

Goalie Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres were finally reminded how disappointing losing can feel.
Then again, it’s been a while.
Vyacheslav Kozlov scored the lone shootout goal and the upstart Atlanta Thrashers put an end to the Sabres’ bid for an NHL record start with a 5-4 victory Saturday night. The loss ended Buffalo’s season-opening winning streak at 10, the Sabres having to settle for sharing the league record for best start to a season set by Toronto in 1993.

Sabres’ depleted D loses LW Tallinder with broken arm

Buffalo defenseman Henrik Tallinder has a broken left arm and the Sabres said he will miss up to two months. He is scheduled to undergo surgery on Sunday.
Tallinder was hurt in Buffalo’s 3-0 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night, and missed Buffalo’s 5-4 shootout loss to Atlanta on Saturday, the Sabres’ first of the season.
It is the same arm he broke in a collision along the boards in Game 3 of last season’s Eastern Conference finals against Carolina.

Coyotes land Perreault

Yanic Perreault finally has a new home.
The veteran free-agent centre signed a one-year, $700,000 US contract with the Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday.
Perreault notched a career-high 57 points with the Nashville Predators last season, after which he became an unrestricted free agent.
