It appears Ted Nolan will coach the Buffalo Sabres next season and beyond.

TSN's Bob McKenzie reported Monday that Nolan has agreed to a three-year extension to remain in Buffalo and the contract has been turned over to lawyers. McKenzie added the deal is being finalized and is not done quite yet.

The Sabres are 15-26-7 since Nolan replaced Ron Rolston on an interim basis on Nov. 13. Buffalo was 4-15-1 when Nolan took over.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
