From the dressing room

OTTAWA -- Here are a few quotes from the Sabres' dressing room following tonight's 2-1 victory over Ottawa.

Derek Roy on his winning goal against Pascal Leclaire: "I knew he was going to come out and challenge. I didn’t have a shot right away, so I knew I had to go around him and bank it. It just happened to go in."

Ryan Miller on the penalty killers coming through three times in the final 8:17: "They’ve got some great players on that power play and they had some looks, but we pushed them and made it a little harder for them."

Jordan Leopold, whose turnover in the final minute of the second period allowed Ottawa to tie the game: "I should have moved it, and I didn’t move it. I was trying to protect it, and at the last second he kind of just bumped it there. It’s a game of mistakes, and I’ll take responsibility for that. We move forward. We got big win, and you can’t dwell on the negatives. We have to move forward with the positives."
