Buffalo Sabres Close Another Dismal Season With A Loss

After going thru the motions in an embarrassing and uninspired effort the night before against the Florida Panthers, the Buffalo Sabres showed slightly more spirit Sunday in Tampa, but lost anyway 4-2.  The Lightning scored the winning goal with just 1:24 left to play, then scored into an empty net to clinch it.

Buffalo Sabres Fall to Tampa Bay in a Shoot Out

Having lost five of their last six games, as far as I'm concerned Buffalo Sabres fans should realistically hope their team loses as many games as possible thru the end of the season for a better draft choice.  The Sabres chances of making the playoffs this year are the smallest of small, so just pack it in and think ahead to next year.

It took four tries, but the Buffalo Sabres finally found a way to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning. And it was a pretty impressive team effort.

Jack Eichel and Cody Franson each had a goal and an assist while Chad Johnson stopped 30 of 31 shots in a 4-1 win.  Johnson made some spectacular saves in Buffalo's fourth win in the last five games.

High-Flying Sabres Crash In Tampa

After winning three in a row and six of their last seven, the Buffalo Sabres reverted to some of the ugliness they've been accustomed to playing and it cost them badly against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night.  The Sabres gave up three goals in the second period sandwiched between a goal in both the first and third periods and the Lightning cruised to a 5-0 win to avenge their loss in Buffalo Tuesday night.

Buffalo Sabres Complete Weekend Sweep

Four points out of the final playoff spot with five games left to play and some of the Sabres still believe they can make the playoffs.  That's what they say publicly anyway.  Their chances are miniscule, but if they had played most of the season like they did in back to back games over the weekend they'd likely be in the thick of it.

Lousy Weekend In Florida For The Sabres

It's not even Christmas yet - a whole lot of games left to play, but it's looking more and more like the Sabres just don't have what it takes to get into the playoffs...
