"We need the support"

BUFFALO -- He scored the only goal of the game and his team climbed back into the series, but Buffalo Sabres forward Jason Pominville was a bit miffed on Wednesday night.
The HSBC Arena capacity crowd of 18,690 booed loud and long, both during and after, a five-minute power play on which the Sabres had a mere two shots on Flyers goalie Brian Boucher.
With Flyers captain Mike Richards in the penalty box for elbowing Patrick Kaleta with three seconds left in the second period, the Sabres got nothing going during the major.
"Disappointed in how the fans reacted," Pominville said. "I think that's the time where we need the support a little bit."
What did Sabres coach Lindy Ruff think of the catcalls?
"I wanted to boo too, actually," Ruff said, drawing laughter. "Deep down, I wanted to say, 'Make some plays.' We have young players and there's a lot of pressure in that situation."
