BUFFALO, N.Y. - After falling in a shootout a day before, the Devils rebounded and beat the Sabres 5-3 on Sunday. They finish the two-game series with three out of four possible points. The Devils fourth line of Miles Wood, Michael McLeod, and Nathan Bastian had a big night, scoring four out of the five goals for the Devils Sunday.
"Real good win for us, fourth line played great, lot of energy," said Devils Head Coach Lindy Ruff following the win. "Back-to-back afternoon games, you don't know where your energy is going to come from but they gave us one heck of a game. I thought all the way around, four lines, six defensemen and Comrie made some great saves for us to help us win a hockey game."

Michael McLeod had his first career two-goal game, Miles Wood scored his fourth and fifth goals of the season, and Andreas Johnsson scored his second for the Devils in his second straight game.
"It's huge for confidence. Now I just need to get more pucks on net," said McLeod on the confidence his two goals gives him. "That was a huge game for us and that was a huge two points."
