Buffalo Sabres Shut Out In New York

Offensively challenged would be a good way to describe this year’s edition of the Buffalo Sabres. They pass when they should shoot and shoot when they should pass. And the Sabres made it an easy night for New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundquist, who stopped all 29 Buffalo shots to pick up a 2-0 shutout victory.

The Rangers dominated this game, outshooting the Sabres 19-6 in the first period, and added another 19 shots in the second period to the Sabres’ 12. And when you draw just one penalty during a 60-minute game, you have to wonder about the desire to score and drive to the net.

Ryan Miller ended up facing 46 shots against the Rangers. It’s got to be frustrating for a guy who doesn’t get much support defensively.

So sitting at the very bottom of the standings with the worst record in the league, the Sabres drive for the number-one overall draft pick continues Saturday night against the Anaheim Ducks.
