Luke Adam's power-play goal late in the first period has given the Sabres a 3-0 lead in Mannheim.
This performance by Adler Mannheim is a far cry from last season's exhibition game against the San Jose Sharks, who had to rally in a shootout to win 3-2. The Sharks were actually trailing in the shootout and down to their final shooter before Ryane Clowe tied it and Dan Boyle won it in the fourth round.
It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
