Coming into tonight's Buffalo versus Boston game the primary focus was the potential physical play. Since the Sabres got bigger over the off season, with the additions of enforcer John Scott and agitator Steve Ott, many Sabres fans thought they would finally receive an answer for last season's Milan Lucic and Ryan Miller incident.
However, Sabres sniper, Thomas Vanek grabbed the spotlight and recorded a hat-trick and two assists in the Sabres' 7-4 win over the Bruins. This was Vanek's second five-point game of the season, and he now leads the NHL with 15 points in six games played.
Also Sabres captain, Jason Pominville and young star, Cody Hodgson both recorded a goal and two assists on the night. While Miller turned away 38 shots for his third win of the season.
Check out Vanek's hat-trick below.

The Buffalo Sabres finished up their European tour, where they outscored their opponents by a score of 8-3, with a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings earlier today. This win concluded a trip where the Sabres easily beat their opponent in both of their contests.
The first contest of the season, against the Anaheim Ducks, was also won by the Sabres by a score of 4-2.
When the Sabres return to Buffalo they will come home with a 2-0 record, a power play unit that seems to have clicked quite well, and the feeling that they just beat two teams that are supposed to be some of the tougher teams in the league.
