Following a ceremony for the retirement of Dominik Hasek's jersey, the Detroit Red Wings beat the Buffalo Sabres, 3-1.


BUFFALO — Following a short and simple — but touching — ceremony honoring goaltending great Dominik Hasek, the Buffalo Sabres and Red Wings took to the ice in hopes of seeing which of the former Sabre's teams could be better tonight.

It was Detroit.

While fellow Czech-born goaltender Michal Neuvirth made some impressive saves on the night, the three goals he allowed were at least two too many. Across the ice, Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek — also of Czechoslovakia — only had 23 shots to swat away. He successfully did so to 22 of them.

Detroit started the scoring off at 9:42 of the first period on a short handed by Darren Helm. The wrist shot was assisted by Kyle Quincey.

Gustav made is 2-0 Detroit 7:34 into the second period on a backhand shot. Justin Abdelkader and Pavel Datsyuk assisted on the power play goal. The Sabres made it 2-1 on a Mike Weber wrist shot at 13:24. Brian Flynn and Drew Stafford assisted. The Red Wings went back up by two goals at 15:09. Tomas Tatar's backhand goal was assisted by Quincey and DeKeyser.

The Sabres next play Thursday when the Minnesota Wild comes to town.
