Marian Hossa has come up with a handful of big goals. Duncan Keith leads a group of solid defensemen, and each of the goalies has played really well. This is the best start in the proud history of the Chicago Blackhawks, and it could become the NHL's best ever Friday when they host the San Jose Sharks. The Blackhawks beat the Vancouver Canucks, 4-3, in a shootout Tuesday to give them 16 straight games with at least one point, matching the league record to start a season. It was the third straight win for the Blackhawks (13-0-3)

RON ROLSTON will finish out the season as the Buffalo Sabres interim coach, taking over hours after Lindy Ruff was fired Wednesday amid growing criticism for the team's slow start. Rolston was in his second season as coach of AHL Rochester, the Sabres' minor league affiliate. And he has long-tenured shoes to fill in replacing Ruff, who became the franchise's winningest coach over 16 seasons. The change comes a day after the Sabres were booed off the ice during a 2-1 loss to Winnipeg, and after Ruff had finished overseeing a 90-minute practice in preparation for Buffalo's game at Toronto on Thursday.

The Buffalo Sabres weren't ready to call it a season. Buffalo built a three-goal lead on tallies by Adam Mair, Jason Pominville, and Mike Grier in the first 30 minutes and rebounded from a devastating loss, beating the visiting Boston Bruins, 4-1, last night to force a sixth game in the Eastern Conference first-round series. "After taking heat, it feels good," said Pominville, who responded to criticism from coach Lindy Ruff with a two-point game, equaling his output in the previous four games.

Buffalo Sabres forward Jochen Hecht is expected to miss at least one game after losing part of his right ear when he was hit by a puck. Hecht is recovering from a mild concussion, and coach Lindy Ruff said the 25-year-old left wing might have to wear a plastic protector over his stitched-up ear when he returns. Hecht, who wears a face-shield visor, sustained a jagged tear, losing the lower half of his earlobe. He also had a deep cut on the back of his head. "They sewed what they could back on," Ruff said.

The slumping Buffalo Sabres hope Doug Gilmour's grit, leadership and experience will bolster their stretch drive for the playoffs. The Sabres acquired the 36-year-old center from the Chicago Blackhawks yesterday for forward Michal Grosek, who last month expressed his displeasure at being benched by coach Lindy Ruff. The Sabres also got rookie forward J.P. Dumont from Chicago. The trade came less than 12 hours after the Sabres landed Chris Gratton in a four-player, two-draft pick deal with Tampa Bay. "Doug Gilmour gives us a strong presence on and off the ice, and someone who has won a Stanley Cup," Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said.

The Buffalo Sabres will have to continue their late-season playoff push without injured goalie Ryan Miller, who did not travel with the team yesterday as it left Buffalo to open a two-game road trip. After coach Lindy Ruff said following practice early yesterday afternoon that Miller would join the team for its flight to Washington, the Sabres announced that Miller was not on the plane. The Sabres did not provide any other details except to say that the starting goalie is still listed as day to day with what the team is strictly calling an upper-body injury.

James van Riemsdyk scored two goals to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs past the visiting Buffalo Sabres, 3-1, on Thursday night, spoiling the NHL head coaching debut of Ron Rolston. Rolston, who until Wednesday was the head coach of the AHL's Rochester Americans, was hired as the Sabres interim coach following the club's decision to fire Lindy Ruff. Van Riemsdyk's power-play goal at 14 minutes, 28 seconds of the third - the ex-Flyer's team-leading 11th - gave Toronto breathing room after Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller stopped Van Riemsdyk with a glove save earlier.

Against the Flyers, Dominik Hasek played like last season's version, letting just one puck past him, that one deflecting off his own defenseman. Three or four times at least, Flyers forwards thought they were flicking rebounds into an open net last night, the goalie down, when suddenly, Hasek or some relevant part of him - an arm, a leg, the toe of a skate - filled the space where the puck was headed. But the NHL's reigning Most Valuable Player knows a strong game or two won't heal everything that has happened to the Buffalo Sabres between their 92-point season last year, which netted them first place in the Northeast Division, and the 20 points they've accumulated in 25 games this season, after last night's 1-1 tie with the Flyers.

Nobody was safe from Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff's bench during the regular season, not even star goaltender Dominik Hasek. Any player who slumped would sit. Geoff Sanderson found himself benched for the series-clinching, first-round victory in Game 5 against the Flyers after he went four games without scoring. Last night, his second goal 2 minutes, 37 seconds into overtime lifted the Sabres to a 3-2 victory over the visiting Montreal Canadiens in the opener of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Score: Sabres 1, Flyers 0 How it happened: Buffalo's Jason Pominville's goal from a cross-slot pass by Rob Niedermayer at 9:38 of the first period held up in the wildest, hairiest game of this series so far. Heroes: Ryan Miller answered days of radio discussion about his playoff worthiness with a spectacular performance. Save of the night came with 8:50 left, after the Flyers kept a puck in and Danny Briere was fed it alone in front of Miller. Briere had time to make a deke, but his attempt to roof it was snared by Miller's left glove.

STEVE MASON was on the bench. A little more than 2 minutes remained on the clock. The Flyers were buzzing with the extra attacker - scratching and clawing to erase a one-goal deficit. Dallas Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen would not have been surprised if the Flyers managed to send the game to overtime. That's the way it's always been against them - including this past Oct. 18 when the Flyers somehow climbed out of two different crippling third-period holes. "That was really one of those nights that I thought, 'That's it, whatever I do doesn't work out against these guys,' " Lehtonen said.

JOHN TAVARES scored with 9:49 left, and the New York Islanders tied their first-round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins last night with a wild, 6-4 victory in Uniondale, N.Y. Only the final lead was safe in Game 4. Tavares slammed in his own rebound in front after Brad Boyes fed him following a turnover by Penguins star Evgeni Malkin. It was the Islanders' third one-goal advantage in the game and the one that earned them a 2-2 tie in the highly entertaining Eastern Conference series that has featured 5-4 and 6-4 finishes at Nassau Coliseum.

HOCKEY IS A simple game, so let's keep this really simple: They're not going to make it this time. That's what your eyes tell you, even amid the better games played by the Flyers in this shortened, game-compacted season. There are too many missing parts and too many meshing ones to believe that this group, as assembled today, will find its identity in time to even reach the playoffs, never mind make a run. One day after what should have been a springboard road victory over Pittsburgh, the Flyers began a five-game homestand with a sleep-inducing, 5-2 loss to Florida.

BUFFALO SABRES coach Lindy Ruff is still in severe pain, and it's unclear when he'll be able to resume coaching a day after breaking three ribs during an on-ice collision with defenseman Jordan Leopold. General manager Darcy Regier yesterday officially listed Ruff as day-to-day, but said it's unclear when the coach will be able to run practice or return behind the bench. "Based on this morning, it's certainly very painful. He was in a lot of pain," Regier said. "He's in a good mood, as good as he can be. " Regier said he's leaving it up to Ruff, 51, as to whether he'll be able to coach the Sabres' home game against Boston tonight.

"   - Lindy Ruff, after the Sabres defeated the Flyers, 8-2, in Game 2 of their 2006 playoff series   "I've seen his teams do the same thing, too . . . Tell Lindy to go [bleep] off.

Sometimes any aggression, even when it involves being on all fours and on the receiving end of an unforgiving piece of lumber, gets you implicated.

The knock on Lindy Ruff's door came in January after the Sabres returned home from Phoenix to end a three-game road trip. Chris Butler had watched seven straight games from the press box and played 10 measly minutes against the Coyotes before reaching his breaking point. It was not a contentious meeting. He was discouraged and frustrated and needed help. He hoped knocking on one door would lead to the opening of another, but Ruff wasn't about to pat him on the back and toss him into the lineup with no questions asked.
