Tyler Seguin capped a three-goal, first-period outburst, and the Dallas Stars hung on to deliver coach Lindy Ruff a 4-3 win in his homecoming against the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night.
It was a busy offseason for the Stars, with center Derek Roy from the Sabres being one of their biggest additions. But not long after he was acquired, he had shoulder surgery in early July.
The Sabres have acquired forward Steve Ott and defenseman Adam Pardy from the Stars in exchange for forward Derek Roy. The deal was announced on Monday.
Nathan Gerbe scored the decisive shootout goal in the fifth round and the Buffalo Sabres rallied from a two-goal third-period deficit to beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Friday night.
