The Sabres put forth a much better effort in Game 3, resulting in a 3-2 win and the lead in the series. Finally, the Sabres forwards scored all 3 goals, including goals from Briere and Vanek. Zubrus currently leads the team in points, with 4 (all assists). He was great again tonight, providing good offense and defense along with a strong physical game. Both of the goalies were solid. Buffalo probably could have had an easier time had they not allowed a very late 2nd period goal that allowed the Isles to pull within one. However, the Sabres kept up the pressure in the 3rd and came out with the win.

I was less than impressed with Islander fans who were throwing bottles and other garbage across the ice.
