Vanek’s 2 Goals help Sabres tame Panthers 3-0

The Sabres keep up their winning ways on the road with a dominate 3-0 victory over the Florida Panthers Tonight. Thomas Vanek scored twice on the Night(1 PPG) and Jason Pominville added 3 Points(1G, 2A). Vanek’s first of the night came 2:33 into the 2nd Period when he redirected a Jason Pominville shot past Jose Theodore. Jason Pominville would put the Sabres up 2-0 after receiving a cross-ice pass from Ville Leino on a 2 on 0 in front of Theodore with a little over 3 minutes left in the frame. Vanek would chip in a Power Play marker late in the 3rd Period on a great Slap Shot. Ryan Miller had an easy night stopping all 22 shots earning his 4th win of the season and his 1st shutout. Jose Theodore was good for the Panthers making 35 saves.

The Sabres return to action on Saturday Night when they visit Steven Stamkos on the Tampa Bay Lightning at 7:30 PM in the first half of a home and home series. Game can be seen on MSG HD with Pregame starting at 7:00 PM.
