Jason Pominville ended a 20-shot first-period barrage against Kevin Weekes with a power-play goal and the visiting Buffalo Sabres beat New Jersey, 2-0, last night. Ryan Miller had 24 saves in registering his second straight shutout, Jaroslav Spacek added two assists, and Patrick Kaleta scored his first goal of the season. Devils goalie Martin Brodeur (bruised elbow) missed the game. In other games: At Uniondale, N.Y., Chris Campoli had his first two goals in nearly a year, the second 3:13 into overtime, and the Islanders beat Columbus, 4-3. At Chicago, Patrick Sharp and Andrew Ladd had two goals each as the Blackhawks beat the Colorado Avalanche.

Sabres defensemen Mike Weber, Chris Butler and Marc-Andre Gragnani all made their playoff debuts last night but Mark Mancari will have to wait as he was a healthy scratch. That allowed Mike Grier to return to the lineup after missing seven games with a sore knee. Defenseman Andrej Sekera's upper-body strain continues to be troublesome and he also sat out. Sekera and Mancari joined No. 3 goalie Patrick Lalime and the injured Jordan Leopold and Derek Roy on the ice following the team's pregame workout.

Looking ahead to Saturday's Game 2 matchup between the Flyers and visiting Buffalo . . . and back to some developments in this Eastern Conference quarterfinal.   If the Flyers are going to win this series, they are going to need their power play to snap out of their doldrums. The Flyers converted on just 5 of 41 power-play chances in their final 14 games (12.2 percent) - and it carried into Game 1 as they went 0 for 5 and squandered a five-on-three advantage for 38 seconds.

Looking for a boost, Sabres coach Lindy Ruff emphatically said Sunday night that Derek Roy would suit up for Buffalo tonight in Game 7 for the first time since Dec. 23, when he severed his left quadriceps in a freak run-in with a skate. Ruff suddenly backpedaled yesterday when asked about the status of the Sabres center. "I don't even know if he's playing yet," Ruff told the Olean (N.Y.) Times Herald after the Sabres' skate yesterday in Buffalo. "I don't know what to expect.

Vezina Trophy winner Tim Thomas made 27 saves for his first shutout of the season and 13th of his career, Marc Savard scored twice and the Boston Bruins beat the Dallas Stars, 3-0, last night to win their first road game of the season. Savard's first-period power-play goal gave the Bruins early momentum, and Patrice Bergeron, who added an assist, had an even-strength goal early in the second. Savard's sharp-angle goal 29 seconds after Dallas' Mike Ribeiro began serving a high-sticking penalty put Boston ahead at 13 minutes, 32 seconds of the first period.

BUFFALO - Daniel Briere has played in more Stanley Cup playoff games than any other NHL player since the lockout. He has been this way before. He has been down and out, in a series and a game. He understands the ebbs and flows of playoff hockey. The Flyers center knows the one compelling truth this time of year: You can't bear to see it end. So, before the third period yesterday, with Philly down, 4-3, and 20 minutes from elimination, Briere stood up in the dressing room and told his teammates so. "I'm not ready for it to end," Briere hollered.

In the regular season, few players have been as durable for the Flyers as Jeff Carter. Through his six complete NHL seasons, Carter has played in at least 80 games in a season four times. But that is where the luck runs out. Carter, who sat out the final two periods of Wednesday's Game 4 loss in Buffalo, is likely to be considered doubtful for tonight's pivotal Game 5 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Officially, the Flyers say their leading goal scorer from the regular season is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Much to the disappointment of the Buffalo Sabres, Flyers captain Mike Richards was not suspended Monday for his hit on Tim Connolly in Sunday's Game 6. The Flyers said the NHL did not have a hearing on the incident. That means Richards, who had a pair of assists in the Flyers' 5-4 overtime win, will be in the lineup for the decisive seventh game Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Connolly's head hit the boards, and the Sabres said he will not play in Game 7, but they are expected to get Derek Roy back in the lineup.

BUFFALO - The skate doesn't fit all that comfortably on the other foot. Not so long ago, Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff was lamenting that the big, bad Flyers were playing too rough during a playoff series between the teams. Now, in a game the Sabres absolutely had to have in order to survive in this first-round series, it was the Flyers who came out nicked, bruised and complaining. "They're getting away with murder out there," Flyers captain Mike Richards said. "And we got called every time [Dan Carcillo]

BUFFALO - Moments after Sabres coach Lindy Ruff called for Mike Richards to be suspended for Game 7 tomorrow night, I found Flyers chairman Ed Snider sitting alone in the team's dressing room, orange socks matching his orange tie, reading from a scoresheet. "Oh," Snider said, with a wry smirk, "is he whining again?" Well, Ruff wasn't exactly singing Shuffle Off to - or in this case from - Buffalo after yesterday's 5-4 overtime loss forced a Game 7. The smirk Ruff wore after Richards complained about his team "getting away with murder" following the chippiness of Game 4 was now a somber monotone as he reeled off a list of the wounded on his team, from scorer Jason Pominville to defenseman Andrej Sekera to, now, Tim Connolly, who was rammed into the boards headfirst from behind by Richards with a little over 6 minutes left in the second period.
