Giving up 40+ shots isn’t how you want to win, but a strong performance from Jhonas Enroth allowed the Sabres to do just that last night. Vanek/Adam/Pominville continue to dominate, with Pommers scoring twice, Vanek assisting on 3, and Brad Boyes scoring again. There were penalties and giveaways, guys named Cody fighting, and a Kaleta goal celebration. It was the sort of game where you are happy you won but you still work the team twice as hard so they don’t get it in their heads that this was okay. Still, it was entertaining as hell to watch. Two of the goals came on the powerplay, which looked to have better puck and player movement. That’s one thing they don’t have to forget, at least.
The Sabres will be back at it tomorrow night against the Panthers, and I might be in the pressbox for that one.
