'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.
Through 20 minutes, it's all Sabres.
