Sabres v. Islanders - Scoring Chances and Corsi Ratings

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

Scoring Chances and Corsi Ratings for the Sabres 4-0 loss to the Islanders on Saturday night.

The Buffalo Sabres suffered their most embarrassing loss of the season on Saturday night with a 4-0 loss to the New York Islanders at the First Niagara Center. It is difficult to find positives in a lopsided defeat, but the Sabres were able to generate scoring chances. Does this mean the team is starting to head in the right direction? Probably not, but it does give us a glimmer of hope.

Not many positives in the chart above. The only bright spot was the newly assembled line of Tyler Ennis, Drew Stafford and Nathan Gerbe. Stafford and Gerbe have taken plenty of heat from the fans and media, but maybe they found some chemistry on a line with Ennis. This will be interesting to watch on Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Head-to-Head Scoring Chances

Chances_2-23-13_medium

The Tavares-Boyes-Moulson line gave the Sabres fits all night. Regehr and Myers seemed to struggle against this line the entire evening. Once again the Ennis line was able to generate chances, but they need to finish to give the Sabres some secondary scoring.
