Sabres No Match for Golden Knights
The Las Vegas Golden Knights demonstrated why they advanced to the Stanley Cup finals last year by schooling the Buffalo Sabres 4 to 1 in Vegas on Tuesday night. The Knights are a combination of talent, chemistry and tenacity that the Sabres just can't match.
It certainly would help Buffalo's cause if they had some semblance of a power play. What they're putting on the ice right now isn't working. They went 0 for 6 with the man advantage and to make matters worse the Knights scored the winning goal when they were short handed.
The Sabres went 0 for 7 against Colorado last Thursday, but did score one power play goal against Arizona on Saturday. They're just 1 of 16 in their last three games. They're getting their opportunities but they've been very sloppy and it's costing them.
The Sabres did manage to break the shut out bid of Marc Andre-Fleury when Vladimir Sobotka scored in the final minute, but hardly good enough.
The Sabres continue their road trip with games in San Jose, Los Angeles and Anaheim before returning home to host Montreal one week from Thursday night.
