Sabres in Denver

DENVER -- Despite coach Lindy Ruff saying Friday that Patrick Lalime will be getting a start "sooner rather than later," it's Ryan Miller in the crease tonight against the's top-scoring team. Expect Lalime, then, to start Monday at home against Ottawa. The Avalanche has started 4-3 thanks to its offensive weaponry. The Avs have scored 28 goals, a league-best 4.0 per game. The Sabres, meanwhile, are tied for fourth with 3.43 goals. It’s goals against where the teams differ so far. The Sabres are third in the after giving up 1.71 per game. Colorado is 23rd because it’s allowed 3.29 per outing. I wrote late last season about all the places I had seen fans in Sabres gear, and I can add another place to the list today. Went over to Golden, Colo., and took the tour of the Coors Brewing Factory and there were Sabres fans in there. Can't beat a little free Rocky Mountain refreshment on game days. Also, noticed the main story on our Web site had Mayor Brown getting the snowplows out in Buffalo. It was 73 in Denver today. ---John VoglSource
