Video: Vanek Nets Hat-Trick

Standard Spin: Thomas Vanek put the Sabres playoff chances in a better light, rising to the occasion with 3-goals. Connolly had 1G & 2A, and Pominville 2A. Lecavalier played despite his injury and scored, as did Ryan Malone - who has 2G in his last 2-games. Stamkos owners, sorry, held pointless again. (Apr.5)
