Game 6: Devils Defeat Sabres, 2-1
    The New Jersey Devils defeated the Sabres 2-1 in Buffalo on Friday, October 25, 2002.   The Devils got a first period goal from an unlikely source, Ken Daneyko.
    Coming into the game, Ken Daneyko had an NHL-record streak of 255 games played without scoring a goal (His last goal was on 2/9/99 against the Canucks).   He broke that streak by putting a scorcher of a shot past Martin Biron at 17:07 of the first period.   Oleg Tverdovsky and Patrik Elias assisted on the goal.
    The first period ended with the Devils leading the Sabres 1-0.   The Devils outshot the Sabres 11-4 in the period.
    Stu Barnes knocked a rebound out of the air into the net at 5:56 of the second period, to tie the game, 1-1.
    It was eleven minutes before the Devils would get their first shot in the second period.   Their first was a good shot, but most of the play prior to it was played in the Devils zone.
    The second period ended with the game tied, 1-1.   The Sabres outshot the Devils 12-6 in the period.
    Sergei Brylin put the puck past Martin Biron 1:00 into the third period, to give the Devils a 2-1 lead.   Brian Rafalski got the only assist on Brylin's third goal of the season.
    The game ended with the Devils defeating the Sabres, 2-1.   The Devils outshot the Sabres 9-8 in the third and 26-24 in the game.
    The Devils continued their struggle on the power-play, not scoring in the three chances they had in the game.   They are now 2 for 36 on the season.
    Brodeur said after the game that he doesn't really mind the 1 goal games - they "[keep] you in the game the whole way".
    Brian Gionta had a lot of family and friends at the game - he said earlier in the day that he would have to buy 35-40 tickets.
    It was the battle of Martin's in the nets, with Martin Brodeur in net for the Devils and Martin Biron in net for the Sabres.
    Jay Pandolfo was out of the lineup with a groin pull incurred late in the game against Atlanta.   Mike Danton was back in the lineup, centering the fourth line.   Stephen Guolla played wing on the Madden line, with Jamie Langenbrunner.   Tommy Albelin was a healthy scratch for the Devils.
