I asked a number of players after the game what happened in the locker room between the second and third periods of Friday night's game between the Buffalo Sabres and Boston Bruins. How do you explain how a team that played its worst period of hockey this season suddenly came out and played perhaps its best?
The players insist nothing much was said. They say they just quietly reassed what they needed to do and why they weren't doing it. Well then, OK. If that works for them, keep doing it.
