Last week, The Dallas Morning News sent a reporter to Buffalo, N.Y., as part of its effort to introduce its sunbaked readers to the mysteries of that strange foreign phenomenon, the Stanley Cup Finals.What the reporter found, in contrast to the habitual cockiness of Dallas fans, was Buffalonian after Buffalonian picking the Stars to win the series, muttering muted thanks that the Sabres had at least got this far, and expressing the cautious hope that maybe, just maybe, if all the planets queue up properly in the firmament, the locals will scratch out victory and finally bring some positive national attention to their small corner of the Niagara Frontier.

Southwestern junior Taylor Holmes remembered on Saturday how she and her Sabres teammates felt that no one in the city gave them a chance early in the season to make it to the Baltimore City Division II championship. With only four players back, a new coach and eight transfers, the Sabres had a lot to overcome, but they slowly silenced their critics. A win over Carver just before Christmas break gave the Sabres confidence and showed them, and their opponents, that they could contend for the title.

The winners of the annual Gold Glove awards, the benchmark for defensive excellence for nearly 60 years, have typically been decided by the discerning eye of those who are closest to the game. Most recently, the award has been selected by a vote of major league managers and coaches. For the first time, a defensive analytic will play a role in deciding the award this year. Rawlings Sporting Goods, which awards the Gold Gloves, collaborated with the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR)

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- As the New York Rangers staged a practice finally knowing who their second-round playoff opponent would be, they had to dig deep into their memories to begin preparing for Buffalo. They have not played the Sabres since Dec. 1. A bizarre gap in the NHL schedule has created an Eastern Conference semifinal series between strangers. Introductions may be necessary when the teams play Game 1 tonight in Buffalo. In their four meetings this season, the Rangers were 0-1-3. "I don't remember the games," Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist said.

Chris Drury and the Buffalo Sabres beat the high-scoring Ottawa Senators at their own game. Drury scored 18 seconds into overtime after Tim Connolly netted his second goal of the night with 10.7 seconds remaining in regulation and the Sabres stunned the host Senators with a 7-6 victory last night in a wild Eastern Conference semifinal opener. The teams scored three goals in the final 1:37 of regulation as Buffalo's Derek Roy tied it at 5 with a short-handed effort. But Bryan Smolinski scored his second 24 seconds later during the same power play to give Ottawa its fifth straight lead, 6-5. The Sabres pressed for one more, and Connolly got it as he swept a puck that lay within Ray Emery's reach up and over the rookie goalie to shock the sellout crowd.

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Washington Capitals appeared to have plenty of incentive to play hard and win last night, as coach Jim Schoenfeld returned to where he spent most of his NHL career to be inducted into the Buffalo Sabres' Hall of Fame.The effort was there. The results were not."It would've been great if we could've won this one for him," Caps forward Pat Peake said. "This was a very emotional day for him. There were a lot of people happy to see him get honored, and a win would've just topped everything off."

Nicklas Backstrom has already cemented his reputation as one of the NHL's best setup men. But over the past month, the 22-year-old Swede has shown he has the potential to be one of hockey's best finishers, too. Backstrom scored two goals against the league's best goalie Wednesday night, giving him 10 in the past 11 games, to power the Washington Capitals past Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres, 5-2, at Verizon Center. "He's shooting the puck," coach Bruce Boudreau said of Backstrom.

BUFFALO, N.Y. - -Ryan Miller made 35 saves for his 16th career shutout, Nathan Gerbe scored his first NHL goal, and the Buffalo Sabres halted Washington's six-game winning streak with a 3-0 victory over the league-leading Capitals on Wednesday night. Miller, who has the NHL's lowest goals-against average, helped the Sabres slow down the high-powered Washington offense that came in with a league-high 108 goals. He preserved his fourth shutout of the season when he robbed Brendan Morrison, who was staring at a wide-open net, with a diving glove save along the ice with 13 minutes left.

The anticipated shootout between the usually high-scoring Velmar Coleman of Walbrook and Jamal Barney of host Southwestern fizzled last night, but junior Rodney Spruill stepped up for victorious Walbrook. Spruill, whom coach Kelvin Bridges said "is a guard inside a 6-foot-4 body," had game highs of 20 points and nine rebounds in leading the No. 4-ranked Warriors to a 54-38 romp over the No. 3 Sabres. "Don't let the big body fool you," said Bridges, whose team is 10-2 overall and 7-0 in Baltimore City league play.

DALLAS -- Ed Belfour, the Dallas goalie, goes by the nickname the Eagle, and he wears the image of the bird on his head gear. Dominik Hasek, the Buffalo goalie known as the Dominator, wears an old-fashioned mask often called a "bird cage."This aviary rivalry goes back a decade, and Hasek flew highest last night in the opening game of the Stanley Cup Finals as his Sabres stunned the Stars, 3-2, in overtime at Reunion Arena.The winning goal was scored by Jason Woolley at 15: 30 of the extra session after Hasek made two stunning saves.

WASHINGTON - Buffalo's Miroslav Satan saw Washington Capitals goalie Olie Kolzig leave the net and go after the loose puck behind and to the left of the goal and decided to follow him. "I knew what he was going to do," Satan said. "I knew he'd send it around behind the net, but I didn't expect him to misfire on it. I thought he'd send it round along the boards. That's when I got lucky." Satan intercepted the bouncing puck intended for Caps defenseman Joel Kwiatkowski, swung around to the front of the net and tucked it in. The first-period goal wasn't the game-winner, but it was the one that changed the flow of the game and eventually led to Buffalo's 3-1 victory.

WASHINGTON - The Buffalo Sabres tried everything they could think of to put the Washington Capitals off their game last night, and, in the closing minutes, it almost worked. With the Capitals scrambling to defend their offensive zone, the Sabres nearly forced overtime after being down by three goals at the start of the final period. But after seeing their advantage shrink to a single goal, the Capitals hung on for a 3-2 win. "We've got to tighten up," said Capitals goalie Olie Kolzig, who made 35 saves, including 17 in the third period, and looked disbelieving after his team's letdown.
