Newsday: Greg Logan has the recap of the win. Nolan said Fedntenko, Comrie and Guerin have taken over the team from last year.

Among the comments:

"It's not easy to come in this building and score six goals," center Mike Sillinger said. "We've got a lot more depth than last year. You take seven guys out of our lineup who were heavily relied upon offensively, including a whole power-play unit of Blake, Smyth, Kozlov, Poti and Alexei Yashin, and we did a good job of replacing the personnel. To get these guys going and to get our power play going is huge for our team."

Newsday: Had a full article on Radek Martinek signing and noted Berard is still unsigned but Campoli scored a pp goal in the opener.

"Last year, he was our best defenseman when healthy," general manager Garth Snow said. "The key is for Radek to stay healthy. If he can play a full 82 games, he can be a force. His skating ability got us out of a lot of trouble."

Goes without writing it the Times, Post and News provided no coverage or A.P coverage.

Buffalo News: John Vogal provided a brief summary from a paper that usually is very late (10pm-1pm) getting it's game stories on line the next day. Check back later today for an update.

Updated 9am:

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Personally I thought it was the bugs at Jacobs field as to why the Sabres lost, I think the last thing anyone is going to do is credit the Islanders.
