Sabres collar Ice Dogs

The Fort Frances Jr. Sabres weren’t about to make the same mistake twice.

Leading by three goals after 40 minutes against the visiting Dryden Ice Dogs on Tuesday night, the Sabres didn’t let it slip through their grasp like a similar three-goal lead vanished in an 8-5 home loss to the Fort William North Stars back on Sept. 26.
