Video: Sabres' tribute to Ruff and fans' standing ovation

By John Vogl

The Sabres played a video tribute to team legend Lindy Ruff on the scoreboard tonight during his return, a highlight-filled package that started with a goal and his fight with New York Islanders goaltender Billy Smith.

The fans quickly rose to their feet, one with a sign behind the bench that read “We still love you Lindy,” and they cheered long after the video ended.
