It was one of those games where if he was still in charge, the fans would have been calling for Darcy Regier to be fired. Even with the hiring of Pat LaFontaine and Ted Nolan to fix the Buffalo Sabres, there’s still a lot of work to be done.

Against one of this year’s Stanley Cup contenders, the St. Louis Blues, the flaws with the Sabres were evident. And it’s nothing that coaching, goaltending or home ice will be able to address quickly. This will be a long process, and just like Regier was asking back in May, Nolan is now asking for the fans to be patient.

Turnovers in their own end were the biggest problem for the Sabres Tuesday night in a 4-1 loss to the Blues. And when you turn the puck over against a team like the Blues, the puck is going to be in your net. Every one of the St. Louis goals was off a Buffalo turnover.

The game started on a positive note when Tyler Ennis converted a pass from Ville Leino to open the scoring just 10 seconds into the game, but that was all the scoring the Sabres would do for the entire night. Then the mistakes started coming, and it was less than a minute later that the score was tied when the Blues converted the first Buffalo mistake into a goal and did the same three more times to cruise to an easy victory.

Ennis says it’s a game where they were taught some lessons.
