Miroslav Satan and Daniel Briere each had a goal and an assist as the Buffalo Sabres won their first game of the season, 4-3, over the Dallas Stars on Monday at Buffalo, N.Y. The Sabres had been shut out in their first two games.

"I thought it was a really great win against a team that was really rolling," Sabre Coach Lindy Ruff said. "We battled through a lot and had a lot of good efforts out there."

Ales Kotalik ended the Sabres' scoreless streak at 124 minutes, 36 seconds with a goal in the first period.

Columbus 3, Vancouver 2 -- Todd Marchant had a goal and two assists for the Blue Jackets at Columbus, Ohio.

Washington 2, Toronto 2 -- Olaf Kolzig made 34 saves for the Capitals at Toronto.

Carolina 2, Florida 2 -- Roberto Luongo of the Panthers stopped 33 shots at Raleigh, N.C., to keep the Hurricanes winless.
