Another Sabres Snoozer
I sometimes think it would be more exciting to step outside First Niagara Center and watch the construction workers putting up the Harbor Center than watch the Buffalo Sabres stumble thru game after game. At least the guys working on the Harbor Center are getting something accomplished, getting something done and have something to show for their work. The only thing the Sabres are getting accomplished is adding to the loss column.
The Sabres are simply a bad hockey team. They opened the scoring on a power play goal by Drew Stafford playing in his 500th NHL game, but Nashville came back to score four in a row for a 4-1 win. And pretty frustrating because the Predators had played the night before in Ottawa - a game that went to overtime and they arrived in Buffalo late while the Sabres were well-rested. You'd think the Sabres might be able to take advantage of that. Not these guys.
So after winning their first three games following the Olympic break they're back to showing why they're the worst team in the NHL. They've now lost three in a row and scored a total of just two goals in that span. The Sabres are on the road for games in Carolina and against the Islanders before returning home Sunday to host Montreal when I'll seriously think about watching a building going up.
