The Sabres dropped their sixth straight, losing to the Lightning 4-1 last night. As a result, they fell to second-last in the Eastern Conference, ahead of only the New York Islanders, who have a game in hand on Buffalo.
The loss to Tampa Bay marked the fifth time in their last six games that the Sabres failed to score two goals and they haven’t scored three since Oct. 30.
Evander Kane, goalless in six games this year, sounded off after the game:
“We’ve scored 11 goals in the last 9 games. You’re not gonna win many games if any, scoring like that. We gotta find a way to create more… not even create more. Just bear down and bury them. Just get hungrier.
It must be a joke right now. If you score two goals against the Buffalo Sabres, you’re gonna win the game. We gotta end that.
We had lots of opportunites to score. We didn’t. We’ve got to have more guys that want to be a difference maker, want to have the puck on their stick. We’ve got to be harder to play against.” -Evander Kane
