Canes win in overtime, take series lead

On Sunday night, the Hurricanes defeated the Sabres 4-3 in overtime. They have taken a 3-2 lead in the best of seven series, which returns to Buffalo on Tuesday night.

I'm WAY too tired to make a serious post. I promise I'll get up in the morning and make a solid post before I go to work. For now:

Chris Drury gave the Sabres a 1-0 lead at 7:08 of the first. 17 seconds later, Viva tied it.

Ten minutes later, Derek Roy gave the Sabres a 2-1 lead.

1:55 into the second, Toni Lydman put the Sabres up 3-1 during a four-on-four sequence.

Mark Recchi scored for the Canes at 5:21 and Brind'Amour tied it up at 10:04.

The next 30 minutes were scoreless, taking us to overtime.

At 8:46 of the first overtime, Cory Stillman won the game for the Canes.

Eric Staal assisted on the Brindy goal, extending his scoring streak to 15 games.

Cam Ward replaced Gerber in net during the second period, and ended up getting the win.

Real post sometime tomorrow morning.
