Chad Johnson stretches out to make a stunning save.

Playing up against the Philadelphia Flyers, Johnson was steady, turning aside 30 of the 33 shots he faced.

However his biggest stop came in overtime and helped the Sabres pick up a third win in their NHL season.

That’s rookie Scott Laughton who was robbed by Johnson, and, as things tend to go in hockey, a big save at one end often leads to the game-winner at the other.

Only 33 seconds after Johnson’s miraculous stop, the puck was turned over by the Flyers as they entered Buffalo’s zone.

Mike Muscala (No.31) handles the ball against Detroit Pistons.

Atlanta Hawks takes on the Detroit Pistons on home ground at the Philips Arena in today NBA season’s opener.

It was a close game at the multi-purpose indoor arena, which was surprisingly won by the Pistons with an aggregate score of 106 to 94.

After being held to a draw at 25 points in the first quarter, the Pistons went on to win the game by securing two quarters by 23-18, 34-23 before conceding the final quarter by 24-28.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 21 points to lead all five Detroit starters in double figures and ruined the home opener for the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference last season.

Atlanta was looking to build on last season’s franchise-best record of 60-22 and run to the conference final.

Instead, the Hawks picked up where they left off in a sweep by the Cleveland Cavaliers, losing again in familiar fashion.

It was yet another clear blow to both Chelsea and Mourinho.

The Chelsea slump takes another turn for the worse as they fail to defend their league cup trophy.

Their defeat means that they have now lost eight out of their last six matches.

After Chelsea dominated a goalless first-half, Stoke led when Jon Walters was allowed to turn on the edge of the box before firing in off the crossbar.

Loic Remy drilled in an injury-time equaliser, seconds before Stoke’s Phil Bardsley was sent off for two bookings.

Stoke scored all of their spot-kicks, Eden Hazard missing the final penalty.

Potters keeper Jack Butland was the hero for the home side, saving the Belgian’s high effort to put Stoke into the quarter-finals.

Despite the Premier League champions’ dreadful start to the season, any suggestions of disharmony in the Blues ranks looked wide of the mark at Britannia Stadium.

The visitors showed no signs of their recent troubles in the first half, passing the ball around confidently and stretching the Stoke back line with their sharp movement.

England international Butland thwarted the visitors with a trio of top-class saves in the opening half-hour, twice denying Diego Costa and then Oscar, while Chelsea skipper John Terry’s cheeky flick from Willian’s cross was ruled out for offside.

And the character showed to level deep in stoppage-time suggested that the players were prepared to fight for Mourinho.

Nonetheless, it doesn’t get any better for Chelsea with Liverpool their opponents this weekend. Will the Blues bounce back?
