Just one of those Buffalo things, people will say. The Sabres have put together a solid run here, going 4-1-1 in the last 6. Vanek (3G 5A) and Stafford (5G 3A) each have 8 points during that time, and Gaustad/Gerbe/McCormick have been playing well for some secondary scoring. And yet, they are still 8 points out of a playoff spot. That’s the problem with being on the outside looking in – you need help. Like I mentioned in a previous post, the Sabres can help themselves later this month with games against Boston and Montreal. They have to keep winning other games for that to matter, though.
Other random thoughts:
- Wasn’t it nice hearing RJ on TV last night? Felt so comfortable.
- Sure wish Commander Cody got to really fight last night, was over too quick. Really starting to like McCormick.
- Jeff Skinner is a player.
- I still hate Carolina.
