Pro Sports Daily:
Nathan Gerbe scored in the fourth round of the shootout as the Buffalo Sabres snapped a franchise-record 12-game road losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.
Ilya Kovalchuk scored in the first round of the shootout for the Devils and captain Jason Pominville kept the Sabres alive in the third. Following an Adam Henrique miss, Gerbe’s wrist shot sailed over Martin Brodeur’s right pad for the winner.
Buffalo’s Jordan Leopold scored his eighth of the season while Ryan Miller stopped 27 shots. Patrik Elias tallied in regulation for New Jersey, which has dropped three in a row.
Leopold opened the scoring less than four minutes into the game. The Sabres broke out on a 3-on-2 when Leopold laid it off to Gerbe, who fired a shot that ricocheted off the boards behind the net. Leopold was there to retrieve the puck and score from the doorstep.

When Brendan Shanahan took over as NHL Senior VP of Player Safety and Hockey Operations, many saw him as a white knight. He was the Harvey Dent of the NHL, the man in charge of changing everything that is wrong on the ice. Almost immediately I had an issue with naming a guy like Shanahan to such a position. Many applauded his career, his highlights and the awards in his trophy case...
from John Vogl of the Buffalo News, The Sabres’ never-ending quest to get healthy remains just that. Buffalo suffered another unexpected absence Tuesday, losing center Jochen Hecht to a concussion. He took part in the morning skate prior to the 2-1 shootout win over New Jersey, but he quickly began to feel terrible.
Hecht visited with doctors, who diagnosed him with his second...

Well well well, another one goal effort by New Jersey results in a third straight loss. New Jersey fell to a slumping Buffalo squad that had lost their last 5 games before walking into Newark, along with a miserable 10 game record of 2-7-1. Through three periods it seemed like New Jersey was eventually, and, i'd like to STRESS the word EVENTUALLY, (becuase thats how the last...
