DBTB Open Thread: Week of 2/14 | Skinner starts off Valentine’s week with a bang

A place to discuss all that’s going on in the world of the Sabres and the NHL

The Buffalo Sabres started off a busy Valentine’s week with a win, beating the Montreal Canadiens 5-3 with Jeff Skinner banging in four goals before we all settled in to watch Super Bowl LVI and think about what could have been with the Buffalo Bills...

The Sabres will be in action often this week, as they start off with a three-game homestand with the Isles and Sens stopping by before the big Saturday matinee game against the incredible Avs who are on a 19-game point streak (yikes!), and then a quick hop to Columbus on Sunday evening.

The Sabres are currently 7th in the Atlantic Division, having been overhauled by the Sens, and have a 15-24-8 record.
