Lindy speaks

Sabres coach Lindy Ruff, on the eve of re-signing with the team, spoke with The News Wednesday in his first interview since losing to Ottawa early last month. Most of the chat was about Thursday's NHL Awards ceremony -- Ruff is up for his second straight coach of the year honor -- but he said this season was more challenging than previous years because of the high expectations. Staying on top is tougher than getting there.

"We kept saying the first year that maybe some teams took us for granted," Ruff said. "Nobody took us for granted. Everybody tried to play us at times different ways. So I think trying to stay there when your team has a target on it is a tough task."
