Your Three Stars from last week: Sam Reinhart, Ryan O’Reilly and William Carrier. The Three Goats are the Power Play, the Penalty Kill and Dan Bylsma.

Here is the LINK to the spreadsheet with all this season’s results.


Like we said last week, the Buffalo Sabres are epitomizing a roller coaster team right now, consistently going up and down and neither playing nor badly for long stretches.

At the end of the season, the team and the fans are going to look back at some key divisional losses as games where the season likely got away from Buffalo. There have been a couple every week for the last few weeks, and there was on against Toronto this week too.

As always, we’ve got all the forwards and defensemen who played over the past week in the grading.

We’re sticking with the Corsi For % as well the stats beyond just the goals, assists and +/-. For Dan Bylsma we’ve added the team’s overall Corsi For % as a measurable stat.
