The Sabres rebounded from an overtime loss in Denver to beat the San Jose Sharks 3-nothing in the second game of a 3-game road trip.  Rookie Luke Adam, Jochen Hecht and Thomas Vanek scored the goals while Ryan Miller stopped 36 shots for his 3rd shutout of the season. 

It was the 500th coaching victory for Lindy Ruff.  He has a long way to go to catch the NHL leader in coaching victories.  Scotty Bowman registered 1244 coaching victories during his career.   He also owns the record for NHL playoff victories with 223.  Bowman also won 9 Stanley Cups.  You'd think with all those Stanley Cups he would have won just one in Buffalo while he was coaching the Sabres.
