Sabres Disappoint Fans In Home Opener
A great start, but a lousy finish for the Sabres in their home opener Friday night at First Niagara Center. With all the additions to the lineup, the improvements to the arena and after such a great start to the season in Europe, the sell-out crowd was geared up to be treated to something special. But every time the Sabres scored a goal the Hurricanes would answer. Drew Stafford nearly brought the house down when he tied the game late in the third period after a great play by defenseman Tyler Myers, but less than a minute later the Hurricanes took the lead again with a power play goal and held on for a 4-3 victory.
