Carolina's Maurice not concerned

The Sabres were happy to beat the team ahead of them in the standings, and the 10th-place squad moved closer to ninth-place Carolina with a 3-2 victory. The Sabres are five back of the Hurricanes, who certainly don't claim to be looking in the rearview mirror.

"We don’t look at the opponents like we need to keep Buffalo behind us," Carolina coach Paul Maurice said. "We want to catch teams ahead of us."

Maurice also won't be looking back at the game tape of his HSBC Arena loss, which featured few scoring chances for a team that scored 15 goals in the previous three games.

"It was a road game," Maurice said, "and I’m more than happy to leave it here."
