Buffalo Sabres v. Chicago Blackhawks - By the Numbers

Tonight was the first time all season that it looked like the team quit. I don't know if this means they no longer want to play for Lindy Ruff or if it was a result of the score. Either way, it was ugly.

Just two nights after a 5-0 loss at Detroit, the Sabres suffered a similar fate in a 6-2 thumping by the Chicago Blackhawks. Buffalo actually had a 1-0 lead on a goal by Jason Pominville but Chicago took advantage of a couple of power play opportunities and took the lead for good.

It will be interesting to see if the team can find a way to bounce back on Thursday at Winnipeg. It has the makings of a blowout and therefore will probably be a close game.

Let's take one last look at last night before we get ready for the game this evening.
