The goal of not losing two games in a row is no longer a reality for the 2009-2010 version of the Buffalo Sabres. This team had set that goal before the season started and through the first 10 plus games they managed to maintain that goal. They lost 5-2 at home on Friday against the Philadelphia Flyers and followed that up with a road loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday.
When you think about it, this game had all the makings of a loss. The Sabres have struggled in the second game of back-to-back games over the past two seasons, including two losses this season. Rookie goalie Jhonas Enroth was making the first start of his NHL career and the team didn't play all that well on Friday night. This is not meant to be justifying the loss but we shouldn't be surprised the Sabres didn't win.
