Sabres Vanek Claims He Did Not Rush Back

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) -- As I watched Thomas Vanek flounder for two periods in Winnipeg, I was thinking he came back too early. Vanek had said he wouldn’t be 100%, but he totally disagreed with me, “No, I think I played well. I think I created a lot of chances, had a lot of chances and should’ve had two, three, maybe four and just didn’t get one. A couple of two on ones I think I should’ve shot it, but if it goes the way I think it goes, it’s an empty net and then on the defensive side, I couldn’t buy anything, but as a goal scorer, I’ve got to bury those chances.” Ron Rolston didn’t think he came back to soon either, “No, he was ready to go.” Vanek was on the ice for all four Winnipeg goals.
