Derek Roy scored a power-play goal in overtime to
give the Buffalo Sabres their seventh win in eight games, 2-1 over the Atlanta Thrashers on Thursday night.
With Zach Bogosian in the penalty box for elbowing and the
Thrashers down to only three skaters, the Sabres had plenty of room to operate.
Tim Connolly guided the power play from the center of
the ice, just inside the blue line, sliding a pass to Roy all alone
at the top of the right circle.
Roy ripped a one-timer over Ondrej Pavelec's left shoulder to
end the game at 2:27 of the extra period.
