Ehrhoff scores 2, Miller stops 36 shots in Sabres' 3-2 win over Hurricanes

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Christian Ehrhoff scored twice, including the go-ahead goal with 44 seconds left, in lifting the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night in the NHL's first game after its Olympic break.

Ryan Miller played a key role in stopping the first 20 shots he faced and 36 overall in what might be the star goalie's final game in Buffalo before the league's trade deadline on March 5. Miller also assisted on both of Ehrhoff's goals, while Drew Stafford also had two assists.

Tyler Ennis also scored for Buffalo, which snapped a four-game skid, and won for only the third time in its past 14 games (3-8-3).

Eric Staal and Alexander Semin scored for the Hurricanes, who lost to Buffalo in regulation for the first time in seven meetings, dating to a 1-0 loss at Carolina on Nov. 18. 2011.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
