Sabres Comeback to Beat Wings

New, comments

I would give you a full recap of the game but quite frankly I have no idea what happened in this game.  Have I ever mentioned I hate they don't televise the pre-season games?  This is the recap from NHL.com in it's entirety.

DETROIT (AP) -Derek Roy and Thomas Vanek scored 2:21 apart in the third period to lift the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Paul Gaustad added an empty-net goal and Ryan Miller stopped 42 shots for Buffalo.

Johan Franzen scored for Detroit and Jimmy Howard made 17 saves.

Literally, that is the entire recap.  I will add that as I followed along and seen the Sabres getting outshot considerably and trailing 1-0, I immediately thought the worst.  It's nice to see they hung in there and pulled out a victory.  The goals coming from Vanek and Roy were encouraging as well.
