Buffalo Sabres Daily Links: Sabres Playoff Charge Continues

Congrats to Marcus Foligno on the first of many NHL goals.

The Buffalo Sabres defeated the Ottawa Senators last night in the shootout, and earned two big points in their playoff race. Here's a quick batch of links to get you caught up on the action.

- Marcus Foligno scored his first NHL goal, but didn't do the Foligno Leap because he didn't know if Stafford would get credit for scoring instead. He also wants to save it for a home game. [The Buffalo News, WGR]

- The Sabres suffered a few more injuries last night including Matt Ellis and Patrick Kaleta. [The Buffalo News]



Here are your rooting interests for Sunday, March 11:

Toronto to beat Washington
The Leafs are four points behind the Sabres, but Washington still sits two points ahead after their win yesterday afternoon. If the Leafs can help the Sabres out here, Washington's game in hand will evaporate.

Carolina to beat Florida
Florida is the #3 seed but sits just 3 points ahead of Buffalo. The Southeast is just awful this year.

Updated Eastern Conference standings can be found after the break.
