Sabres Kick Ass and Win Game

Last night the Buffalo Sabres beat the Ottawa Senators 6-5 in a shoot out, dispite a depleted bench. The Sabres were short handed after a brawl broke out 5 minutes into the second period after the teams co-captian Chris Drury was earholed by by Ottawa's Chris Neil. Drury slowed down to take a shot on goal when Chris Neil without slowing ran over him from behind, which sent his helmet flying and left him dazed on the ground with a gash on his forehead.

Although the hit seemed dirty,Neil was not penalized.

"Emotions were running high. ... It didn't matter who was on the ice, anybody would've responded," said Biron, who was ejected with Emery and Buffalo hard-ass Andrew Peters. "That was really satisfying. And it's satisfying to see the way we played after that."

In all, the game was delayed 20 minutes, and 100 penalty minutes were issued, 63 to Buffalo.

Heres the fight.
