I seriously sat here for about two hours trying to think of interesting things to say about this game and I have nothing.

Same story on a different night. They can’t generate offense and when they do they can’t score. I’m out of answers at this point. It’s wild that in a sport like hockey that is full of bounces that the Sabres can’t get a puck to go in the net off a leg.

At least we can hold onto Will Borgen playing well again as a positive.

They’re in trouble in the standings now in the East Division and almost have to sweep the remaining four games of this stretch to have any hope of staying in the playoff race.
