Words from Kaleta

A note to out-of-towners and online-only readers: A web publishing error resulted in an early-edition story on the Sabres'  win over the Rangers appearing at Buffalonews.com this morning. That error has been fixed and you can go to this link to read John Vogl's complete report with comments from the locker room that appeared in today's print editions.

A career night for Kaleta, the Angola kid who has plenty of skills. Lindy Ruff wants Kaleta to play hockey more and not just run wild on the ice looking for unnecessary hits. Kaleta is a physical player who has a nose for the action and should be looking to play the puck more. And that roof shot on his shorthanded breakaway? The kind of play guys on this club making a lot more money haven't done enough of lately.

That said, for all the "problems" on this team (lack of top-six scoring, backup goaltending, inconsistent power play), the Sabres have 19 wins in 30 games and are third in the East. And lots of other teams below them have far greater problems.
