BUFFALO, N. Replica Shoes .Y. -- A quick start paid off for the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday. Marian Gaborik had a goal and two assists and the Blue Jackets kept the Buffalo Sabres winless with a 4-1 victory. Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno and Brandon Dubinsky also scored for Columbus. Sergei Bobrovsky made 26 saves for the Blue Jackets. "Guys played hard," Bobrovsky said. "They blocked shots. They played good systematically in the zone. They played really well." The Blue Jackets scored three first-period goals to get the early edge on Buffalo. "When youre struggling, theres doubt," Columbus coach Todd Richards said. "As a team that comes in, you need to create that doubt, help bring it back." Thomas Vanek scored for Buffalo and Ryan Miller stopped 29 of 33 shots for the Sabres, who fell to 0-4-1 on the season. Its the clubs worst start since they went 0-5-2 to open the 1999-2000 season. The Sabres have scored just five times in their first five games. "We have guys in here that can make plays," Miller said. "We just have to get past this little hump were having trouble with and you cant just work hard get a puck and not do anything with it. We have to start doing things with it." Miller was playing his first game since injuring his groin last Friday against the Ottawa Senators. Atkinson opened the scoring with a goal at 1:51 of the first. Gaborik and James Wisniewski had the assists. "We were fortunate to get one on our first shift of the game and any time that happens it gives you a little confidence, a little extra jump in your step," Dubinsky said. The Sabres tied the game on Vaneks second goal of the season at 8:50 of the first. The goal was the 252nd of his career and moves him into a tie with Craig Ramsay for fifth on the teams goal scoring list. "There was some creativity out there," Miller said. "We had a nice first goal and some other good plays, mostly because were moving our feet and the game was faster." Foligno put the Blue Jackets back ahead 2-1 at 16:35 of the first on a backhand past Miller. And Gaborik got his second of the season at 18:48 to make it 3-1. Dubinsky scored at 2:11 of the second for his first goal of the season to make it 4-1. Gaborik and David Savard had the assists. The line of Gaborik, Dubinsky and Atkinson combined for six points. "Playing with some pretty good players," Atkinson said. "The chemistry between us three has definitely grown. Its fun to play with those guys." The Sabres continue to look for answers, but Miller said their confidence isnt shaken. "I know we can do it," he said. "We just have to step up here and make it better."

The unrestricted free agent agreed to terms with the club on Thursday on a one-year, two-way deal worth $700,000. Lindsey Vonn partially tore one of the reconstructed ligaments in her surgically repaired right knee in a training crash that at the very least puts her preparation for the Sochi Olympics on hold. What is less clear at the moment: When the four-time overall World Cup champion and 2010 Vancouver downhill gold medallist will be able to compete again and how her injuries might affect her Olympic hopes. In addition to Vonns ligament tear, the U.S. Ski Team and Vonns personal publicist, Lewis Kay, issued nearly identical statements Wednesday detailing more injuries from her fall at Copper Mountain, Colo., a day earlier: a mild strain to her right knee, the same one Vonn hurt in a high-speed crash at the world championships in February; "minor facial abrasions"; a bruised shoulder blade. Vonn has not competed since needing surgery to fix her ACL and MCL after the crash in Austria nine months ago; the ACL was re-injured Tuesday. Kay said that after Vonn rests for a few days, she "then will pursue aggressive physical therapy and will determine the next time she is able to compete after seeing how she responds to the treatment." Vonn has won 59 World Cup races, leaving her only three shy of Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proells record of 62. The 29-year-old American had been aiming to return to World Cup competition next week in Beaver Creek, Colo. The Sochi Games are in February. "If its just a partial tear, maybe its a four-plus-week recovery. I believe Lindsey is the kind of person thats going to work as hard as anybody can work at it and will recover as strong as anyone. She has the mind-frame to come back strong. If its possible for her to get out there and compete, shell be out there competing. And when she competes, she normally wins," said U.S. ski racer Ted Ligety, a gold medallist at the 2006 Turin Games. "Who knows at this point if its Olympic-threatening?" Ligety said in a telephone interview. "Obviously, its World Cup-threatening for the near term." Vonn recently said her super-G is "some of the best super-G Ive ever skied, but my downhill still needs a little more time." Shes been taking practice runs in Copper Mountain and posted on her Twitter account Monday: "Catching some air today in Downhill training. Wholesake Fake Nike Air Force 1. ." She also recently said that shes reluctantly been wearing a protective knee brace under doctors orders. "Its in my best interest to play it safe," Vonn said. "I compromised and said that as long as I dont have to wear (the brace) for the Olympics, Ill be fine." Comebacks are really nothing new for Vonn, who has been plagued by injuries throughout her career at major championships -- from a thumb she sliced on a champagne bottle at the 2009 world championships in Val dIsere, France, to a bruised shin that she treated with the unorthodox remedy of Austrian cheese at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and to her wipeout last season. Vonn also had a horrific crash in downhill training at the 2006 Turin Olympics, only to recover in time to compete. She has always attacked rehab with the same intensity as if it were a downhill course. "Ive been injured a lot," Vonn said in an interview with The Associated Press at a promotional appearance last week. "I have a short memory when it comes to my crashes. Im able to put it out of my head and focus on tomorrow. You have to be able to do that. Otherwise, youre going to be living in fear of what you did in the past." Not once after a fall has she visited with a sports psychologist to deal with the mental trauma of a crash, insisting, "Im stubborn. Im definitely stubborn. If someone tells me I cant, Im definitely going to do it." Before her recent fall, Vonn said she was looking forward to seeing what was possible in Sochi on her repaired knee. She said the true stress came at the 2010 Vancouver Games, where she captured her first Olympic gold medal. "The pressure was almost unbearable," said Vonn, who also earned a bronze medal in the super-G in 2010. "I felt like if I didnt win there, people were going to say Im not a big-event skier, even though I won four world championship medals. I knew that, knew the weight of it. "I knew for my career, even though I had so many World Cup wins, that was a very pivotal point in my career. Im very happy that I got that monkey off my back." ' ' '
