The Buffalo Sabres broke their losing streak, but still left the week with just one win, an unexpected one at that against the Edmonton Oilers. Buffalo did play some encouraging hockey though against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the second game of a back-to-back, and were the better side for long periods of that local rivalry as well but were unfortunate to lose.
The coming week has three games again, and time for Don Granato to keep working on his team who are 6-6-2 and sixth in the Atlantic Division.
