Game Recap

Sabres fall to Capitals

Another game for the Sabres, another loss. Buffalo has lost eight of its last nine games as they continue to fall in the standings. Ryan Miller and Patrick Lalime both performed extremely well, but the Sabres offense cannot get anything going.

The anticipation of Raffi Torres seems to grow since the Sabres keep losing. Maybe he will be exactly what the Sabres need, providing an extra boost on offense.

Jochen Hecht was the only one to score in Wednesday night’s game against Washington. It was his 400th career point. Despite losing, the Sabres shutdown the entire Ovechkin line, not even allowing a point.

The Sabres will host Philadelphia on Friday, looking for their first win in the month of March. Buffalo’s room for error has been decreasing over the last month and a half. The situation is starting to turn dangerous. They are becoming at risk of missing out of the playoffs.

In the last 16 games, Buffalo has won just three times, losing the lead in the Northeast Division. Even with the recent slump, the Sabres only trail the Senators by one point, with two games in hand.
