Lucic scores 1st goal with Flames in 4-3 win over Sabres

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) It took 28 games, but Milan Lucic finally has his first goal with the Calgary Flames.

Lucic scored early in the third period to open three-goal lead, and the Flames held on to beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 Thursday night.

"A little bit of relief. It's always nice to get the first one with your new team," said Lucic, who had been held to four assists this season. "My teammates all along have been sticking with me and building me up, because it took longer than I hoped and probably a lot of people hoped, but good on everyone for all of the support."
