Buffalo's Ryan Miller was pulled after giving up
three goals in the first 6 minutes and Jim Slater's third-period
goal gave the Atlanta Thrashers a 4-3 win over the
Northeast-leading Sabres on Tuesday night.

After Miller's early exit, Patrick Lalime shut out the Thrashers
until Slater's tiebreaking goal with 6:44 remaining.

Niclas Bergfors' third assist set up Slater's shot in front of the net.

The Sabres have lost three straight and fell to 0-2 on their
five-game road trip. Buffalo began the night three points ahead of second-place Ottawa in the Northeast Division.

The Sabres trailed 3-1 after the first period before tying the
game early in the third period.

Tim Kennedy deflected Steve
Montador's shot past Johan Hedberg for a 3-3 tie.
Matt Ellis and Jason Pominville also scored for the Sabres.
