MONTREAL - There was just enough left in the Montreal Canadiens legs after rousing wins in Toronto and Boston to face the lowly Buffalo Sabres. Julio Jones Jersey . Max Pacioretty broke a scoreless tie with his 100th career goal midway through the third period and former Sabre Daniel Briere added another as the Canadiens downed last-place Buffalo 2-0 on Tuesday night. "Mentally, the emotional high to come back and get motivated for a game against the Buffalo Sabres was the toughest part," said Briere. "We were a little sloppy in the first period, no doubt about it, but it got better as the game went on." Carey Price made 24 saves for the shutout as the Canadiens (41-26-7) posted a third win in a row and the sixth in seven games — a stretch that included a 2-0 win in Buffalo on March 16. The Sabres (20-44-8) have one win in their last 10 games. They played their fourth game of a five-game road trip that ends Thursday in Nashville. Their top player was goalie Matt Hackett, who made 33 saves in his second start of the season. "You have the give the kid credit. He played well," said Buffalo head coach Ted Nolan of Hackett. "He looks like hes fighting for a job and thats what you want." The Canadiens had played three games in four nights, including a 4-3 victory in Toronto on Saturday and a rousing but rough win against the rival Bruins in Boston on Monday night. With eight regular season games to play, they are two points up on Tampa Bay for second place in the Atlantic Division, but the Lightning have two games in hand. "This is a very important time for us," Price said after his fifth shutout of the season. "Obviously, everybodys trying to make the playoffs and to be able to pick up points against divisional teams and play well — its definitely a confidence-builder." The win in Boston was costly as two fourth line players left with injuries. Coach Michel Therrien said Dale Weise, who was checked from behind into the boards, has an upper-body injury and will be out for two to three weeks. He said Travis Moen, who jumped to Weises defence and got rocked by a punch from Bostons Kevan Miller, "feels better" but has a concussion and will miss at least a week. Already missing Brandon Prust to an injury, the Canadiens had a new fourth line of Lars Eller with Ryan White and Michael Bournival. They may have had the most jump on a team that looked short on energy to start the game. Through two scoreless periods, the loudest cheers from the 21,273 Bell Centre fans were for a sharp Price save on Matt DAgostini during a Sabres power play and when Olympic moguls gold medallist Alex Bilodeau was shown on the scoreboard screen. "The first period was even, we even outshot them (11-10), but we couldnt keep it going into the second," said Nolan. "Then there were bad penalties again." They finally broke the ice on a rush after a Buffalo power play when former Sabre Thomas Vanek slipped a diagonal pass that Pacioretty put in off Hackett at 10:53 of the third period. Briere picked the puck out of a crowd and beat Hackett with a wrist shot from close range on a power play at 16:54. "What I liked was that we didnt change anything when it was 0-0," said Therrien. "We stuck to the game plan and we were rewarded. Hackett played really well for them, but we were patient and disciplined with the puck. "I expected a tough start after the wins in Toronto and Boston." The Canadiens had a four-minute power play in the second period when DAgostini was called for holding and got an extra two for banging his stick on the glass in protest, but failed to cash in. Sabres defenceman Tyler Myers left the game at 6:15 of the third when he looked to hurt an arm or his ribs crashing into a goalpost. There was no immediate word on his condition. Myers was in his first game since sitting out five with an arm injury. Notes — With Weise and Moen both injured Monday in Boston, Eller and White returned to the Montreal lineup. Jarred Tinordi replaced veteran Francis Bouillon. . .Ville Leino, who is without a goal in 51 games this season, was back for the Sabres after sitting out two games in place of injured Zenon Konopka.. . The Canadiens swept their four-game season series with Buffalo. Blidi Wreh-Wilson Jersey . Napoli hit two home runs, Jonny Gomes and prized rookie Xander Bogaerts also connected, and the Red Sox kept up their dizzying scoring spree at Yankee Stadium by bashing New York 13-9 Saturday for a fifth straight win. Brett Favre Jersey . Booth picked up 65 caps after making her national team debut in 2002 at the age of 17. She most recently played for Sky Blue FC of the National Womens Soccer League. "It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. http://www.thefaclonsshoponline.com/Youth-Deion-Jones-Falcons-Jersey/ .com) - The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with running back Jackie Battle on a one-year contract Friday.The Six Nations Arrows are the 2014 Minto Cup champions. The Arrows defeated the Coquitlam Adanacs 14-8 on Saturday night at the Langley Events Centre, taking the best-of-seven series 4-2. Coquitlam threw everything they had at Six Nations in Game 6, but the Arrows held off the charge as they captured their third ever Minto Cup in franchise history. "We knew they werent going to lay down," said Arrows coach Marshall Abrams. "We wanted to at least tie the first two periods and then go hard in the third, and we did that," he said. "Hats off to Coquitlam for a heck of a series." After losing the first two, the Arrows won four straight games to claim the title, their first since 2007. "After those two losses, we just had to get our mind focused and get the jitters out," said Quinn Powless, who had a goal and five assists in Game 6. "We knew we were the better team and we proved it." Johnny Powless was named Tournament MVP, as the Arrows captain scored 29 points (8g, 21a) in six games. "Weve been working so hard for this trophy," said J. Powless. "I grew up with all these guys, theyre all family. This means the world to us". Along with Powless, the Arrows were backed by some outstanding goaltending. Doug Jamieson stopped 225 of the Adanacs 266 shots in thee series, including some crucial saves at key moments. Steve Bartkowski Jersey. "Doug was the MVP out east versus Whitby," said Abrams. "After being down 2-0 in the series, we were all behind him and confident he would step up, which he did." Coquitlam looked to be in control after the first two games of the series, but it wasnt meant to be for the Adanacs. "We knew it was a matter of time before we saw their best games," said head coach Neil Doddridge. "They seemed to get better in games three and four. They were really transitioning to the ball well and that got us in trouble." "It was a hard fought series," said Adanacs captain Wesley Berg. "Sometimes the score didnt really show it. We put it all on the line and we played for each other but it sucks not to win it." "It was a great series with two great teams playing the game the right way," said Doddridge. We emptied the tank the last six days, you cant ask for much more from the guys." "The focus was there all series long," said Abrams. "After the first two games, the boys realized what it took to win the Minto Cup. They realized the dedication and determination needed," he said. "Its been seven years since our last cup,
