Dallas coach Lindy Ruff gets career win 600 against old club, Buffalo

When Lindy Ruff was an NHL hockey player for the Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers, he gained a reputation as a player for his toughness, character and hard work on the ice as a left winger/defenseman.

He brought that same mentality behind the bench as one of the top coaches in the league.

Monday night, his Dallas Stars team defeated his former club, the Sabres, 3-2. The win earned the 54-year-old Ruff his 600th career win. Overall his record as a coach is 600-454-88 in 16 years.

Ruff was the head coach at Buffalo for 15 years, from the 1997-98 season until the middle of the 2012-2013 season. On February 20, 2013, the Sabres announced that Ruff had been relieved of his coaching duties. That ended his tenure as the NHL’s longest active-serving coach with one team and he was second only to Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA as one of the longest-employed coaches in all of the four major sports in North America (NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB).

Jozy Altidore scored in the first half and set up teammate Clint Dempsey’s goal in the second half as the U.S. opened its Gold Cup schedule with a 2-0 win over Canada in Detroit, Michigan.

The U.S. bounced back from a 4-0 loss to World Cup champion Spain in an exhibition game on Saturday.

Altidore, 21, was playing his first game in a Gold Cup, which is the championship of North and Central America and the Carribean.

Altidore’s scored a goal in the 15th minute and Dempsey added to the margin in the 62nd minute off a nice, crisp crossing pass from Altidore.
