Buffalo Sabres v. Philadelphia Flyers - By the Numbers

What a fantastic 20 minutes by the Buffalo Sabres. A 2-0 lead and they dominated play. Unfortunately there was still 40 minutes to play and the Flyers finally showed up. The end result was an embarrassing 7-2 loss. There is one bright side...the game was not on national TV. Hopefully they play better on Sunday afternoon.

If any of us had any reservations, I think we can all agree that it is time to blow it up. It is painfully obvious this group will never win anything and it is time to change the chemistry. I don't want this to turn into a trade thread because my views are very different than most of you, but we can all agree that something needs to change. I hope this change starts at the top and works its way through the ranks.

I could probably talk more about the game but why relive it? It was painful enough the first time. I will include the stats for those that have the stomach for it.
