If there’s ever a time for the Sabres to string together some wins, now would be a pretty good chance to do that.
Four of the next five games are against divisional opponents – two against Toronto and two against Ottawa, a home-and-home with each of them.
The Leafs are one point ahead of Buffalo and still have six meetings left with the Sabres this season. Ottawa are two points behind, but that can change quickly with two games against them.
Thankfully, the Sabres homestand is almost done. A 7-9-2 record on home ice is pathetic and disappointing.
The number of injuries is getting ridiculous, but that’s still not an excuse. Besides, I like having all the young kids from Rochester up and getting some experience.
Only six Sabres have played in all 29 games this season: Pominville, Roy, Vanek, Adam, Ehrhoff and Sekera
Hopefully, the team can get something going against Ottawa Tuesday night.
