Just like that, the Buffalo Sabres are gelling as a team and are fun to watch again. The roster has come together and under the coaching of Don Granato, are showing a lot more grit and jump than we have seen in Buffalo for over a decade.
The Sunday night loss was the first game in nine Buffalo didn’t pick up at least a point, but now things get infinitely harder especially this week with some very difficult games coming up down south.
The Sabres are currently 6th in the Atlantic Division and have a 25-34-11 record.
