Post-Coyotes recap

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Technically, the Sabres are not .500. They are 18-18, but they also have five losses after regulation. Still, they haven't been even in the win-regulation loss columns since they were 1-1, so they'll take it after a 2-1 overtime win against Phoenix.

"It’s huge, not only to cap off our first big road trip, and also we’re back at .500 here," said Drew Stafford, who scored the winner with 1:48 left in OT to make the Sabres 2-0-1 on their road trip. "We had a good step there. It’s just a matter of carrying into home play next week."

The Sabres will have to do it for a while without defensemen Mike Weber, who was replaced by Chris Butler for tonight's game.

"Weber blocked a shot in the San Jose game and got hurt," coach Lindy Ruff said. "He’s going to be out a period of time. I don’t know exactly how long. It’s one of those upper body, outer extremity things."
