BUFFALO, N. Jason Williams Jersey .Y. -- Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff had an opportunity to experience an entire range of emotions in his first trip back to Buffalo to face his former team. Ruff went from holding back tears during a first-period tribute that culminated in a standing ovation, to feeling anxious after the Stars nearly squandered a three-goal lead. And finally he felt relief after Dallas hung on for a 4-3 victory over the Sabres on Monday night. "It was kind of a huge relief," Ruff said. "I was really glad once the tribute was over. I wanted to get the game over with. A lot of good memories here." Add another one to the list. The Sabres winningest coach came away a victor on the visitors bench after goalie Kari Lehtonen stopped the final 10 shots he faced to preserve the win. Tyler Seguin capped a three-goal, first-period outburst, and Jamie Benns goal midway through the second period stood up as the winner in Ruffs first game against his former team after his 16-year tenure in Buffalo ended with him being fired on Feb. 20. "Well, we couldnt just give it to him. We had to make sure he earned it," Seguin said, with a smile referring to how close the Stars came to spoiling Ruffs homecoming. "No, it was a good win. And were moving on now." Alex Goligoski and Vernon Fiddler also scored, and Erik Cole had two assists for the Stars (5-5-1), who snapped a four-game road losing streak. They also won for the first time in eight regular-season trips to Buffalo. Not including playoffs, Dallas had gone 0-5-2 at Buffalo since a 4-2 win on Oct. 7, 1997, which happened to be Ruffs first home game as Sabres coach. Matt Moulson scored twice his Sabres debut a day after being acquired in a trade that sent Thomas Vanek to the New York Islanders, and Buffalo (2-11-1) showed encouraging signs of progress despite matching its worst start to a season in franchise history. "Tonight, there were some of probably the most positive signs Ive seen in a long, long time," said Steve Ott, who also scored for Buffalo. "Obviously, weve got to find the end result to the game. But thats where were at. Theres no sugar-coating where we need to be, and our record indicates what it is." The Sabres dropped to 0-7-1 at home, their longest home winless skid to open a season. The eight-game home drought is also the teams second-longest single-season skid, and four short of the franchise-low set in 1990-91. Another slow start proved too much to overcome. Buffalo has now been outscored 19-2 in the first period this season after Seguin put the Stars ahead 3-1 with 2:08 left in the opening frame. Benns goal 10:55 into the second period put the Stars up 4-1 and stood up as the game-winner. Seguin started the play by checking Ville Leino off the puck at the left circle. After a give-and-go with Cole, Seguin fed a pass through the crease to Benn who beat goalie Ryan Miller at the right post. Ott scored a power-play goal 1:59 later, and Moulson cut the Stars lead to 4-3 with 2:43 left in the second period, when he converted a loose puck in front. Aside from the victory, the highlight for Ruff was the warm welcome he received in Buffalo, where he still maintains a home. Ruff, who was hired by Dallas in June, received a loud and lengthy standing ovation during the first break, when the Sabres showed highlights of him as a player and coach. Ruff couldnt resist in glancing up the board, at times smiling and at another point biting his lip. Several fans brought Ruff jerseys and hand-drawn signs, among which read, "We love you Lindy," and "Welcome home." That was a distinct change for Ruff from the last time he was behind a bench in Buffalo. Ruff and the Sabres were booed off the ice following a 2-1 loss to Winnipeg on Feb. 19. Ruff hadnt set foot into the arena since holding a farewell news conference three days later. "The answer to that is yes, obviously," Ruff said, referring to feeling a sense of closure. "I guess from the Buffalo side, it was great to see the emotion come back into the building as they started to come back. It turned out to be a darn good hockey game."

"Michael is a welcome addition on Saturday, if fit." Toronto head coach Ryan Nelsen said the club was "guarding him a little bit" as Bradley participated in light training on Thursday. The American midfielder is expected to participate in training again Friday in Toronto and be evaluated by team trainers to determine whether he is fit enough to travel to Dallas. "Well see how he feels tomorrow. Twenty-four hours is a long time with these kinds of injuries," said Nelsen following a chilly outdoor practice as the teams training facility. "If theres no negative feedback from what hes done today then hopefully Ill be close to making that decision."

Toronto is 1-6-5 all time against Dallas. "Itll be arguably one of our toughest challenges so far this season," said Nelsen. "Its a real good challenge for us to see where were at. They have a lot of speed out wide, and experience in that central midfield." Added Orr, "Going to Dallas, its going to be a difficult game. Theyre a very good side. Watched a lot of video, the pitch looks fantastic, one that will probably suit us. We proved against Columbus that we can come again strong after a defeat.

Nelsen also confirmed on Thursday that he anticipates being without Defoe (England), Bradley (United States) and keeper Julio Cesar (Brazil) following the teams May 17 road game against the New York Red Bulls due to World Cup commitments. 17:20ET 17-04-14 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
