Tomas Tatar scored the other Wings’ goal. Petr Mrazek stopped 25 shots, and staved off 6 Buffalo attackers in the final minutes.

In a pregame ceremony, the Sabres retired former goaltender Dominik Hasek's number 39. Hasek played for Buffalo from 1992-2001, and for Detroit from 2001-04 and again from 2006-08. The Wings wrap up a six game road trip tomorrow against the Blues in St. Louis.

Athlete of the Week

We head to the lanes for this week's Athlete of the Week. It may be a new conference, but the Marshall Redhawks look to continue the same success that they had last year where they missed out on making it to State by 60 pins. A member of the Boys squad that missed out individually was sophomore Brady Brisson, who was two pins short as a freshman in regionals. He's in playoff form so far, as he currently leads the Interstate 8 Conference with a 232 average in four games, including a conference-high 265 shot at M-66 Bowl on January 7th. His low game so far is 201, and we're still waiting on the results from games on Monday and Tuesday. Congratulations Brady!
