Losing Weekend For The Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres always seem to be one step and one pass behind.  Losses have become pretty routine this season and they continue to find ways to lose.  A couple of things remain pretty consistent.  They’ve been playing some pretty bad hockey during the second period all season long and Sunday night in Washington was embarrassing.

After tying the game just 12 seconds into the second period on a goal by Cody Hodgson the Sabres put the game right back into the hands of the Capitals allowing three straight goals including a pair 43-seconds apart to fall into a 4-1 they never recovered from.

The Sabres came to within a goal and had a chance to tie it with five minutes to play but the league’s worst power play failed them again and shortly after the Capitals returned to full strength they scored to make it 5-3 and put it out of reach.

Hodgson ended up with a pair of goals while Brian Flynn scored his third goal of the season.  Ryan Miller ended up stopping only 20 of 25 shots.

The Sabres are at Montreal Tuesday night.
