There’s a lull in the schedule, following the loss on Tuesday, so here are some random thoughts.
- Tim Connolly played…well? Has had a few games. This would be huge if it continues, so Buffalo can keep Boyes on the wing.
- Where is Jordan Leopold? Might be better on D but we could use his scoring.
- Does Kaleta have a spot in the lineup when he gets back? In the playoffs?
- Does Patrick Lalime still wear that hat in the press box?
- Love the tribute painted on the ice for Rick Martin. I never saw him play, but I can see how big he was here, on and off the ice.
The next few nights are nerve-wracking, as Toronto and New Jersey both play tonight, with NJ and Carolina in play tomorrow. The Sabres need to have a good weekend against Atlanta and Nashville (who really need points too).
