There was a buzz going through the crowd long before the opening faceoff, and it only increased when Plekanec scored the lone goal of the first period to stake the Canadiens to a lead they would never relinquish.

Just when it looked like Montreal was getting ready to roll – Plekanec and Andrei Kostitsyn each scored shorthanded during the second to increase the advantage to 3-0 – the Sabres climbed right back into the game in the third on goals by Derek Roy and Nathan Gerbe. That set up a frantic finish that saw Denis and the Canadiens hang on for the victory.

In the end, everyone won – first and foremost the people of Roberval.

“It was fun to be a part of,” said Sabres captain Jason Pominville, who hails from Repentigny, Quebec. “Me and Patty (Lalime) were able to go a school today after the pre-game skate, and just being able to see the kids with a smile on their face just made our day. It was a fun event to be a part of. If they ever did it again, I’d be the first to come back.”

Stamkos lights the lampSteven Stamkos, the first pick in the 2008 Entry Draft, enjoyed his first big moment as an NHL player when he scored in the shootout against the Pittsburgh Penguins in his first preseason game.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
