SOMEONE needed to step up while Tyler Myers is out, and last night it was Mike Weber, who got his first 2 NHL goals and led the Sabres to a 4-2 lead over the Edmonton Oilers. Weber also had an assist for a 3 point night, while Luke Adam and Jochen Hecht had the other 2 goals.
Buffalo needs to win these games, but they just haven’t consistently. Secondary scoring happened last night, and honestly you might as well call it primary scoring with Timmy, Roy and Myers out. The Sabres need to win 4 or 5 of these games for me to think about them managing a playoff berth. Do you see that happening?
Congratulations, by the way, to Ryan Miller for finally getting win 200. Despite the team struggling, he’s having a pretty nice few weeks (engaged to a hot actress, etc.).
