Grading the Buffalo Sabres - Week ending 2/12/17
Vote in the player grades polls for this last week
Your Three Stars from last week: Robin Lehner, Ryan O’Reilly and the penalty kill(!!). The Three Goats are Zach Bogosian, Nicolas Deslauriers and Cal O’Reilly.
Here is the LINK to the spreadsheet with all of this season’s results.
The Buffalo Sabres didn’t do very well in a very hectic week with five games played. While they were able to slow down division rivals Toronto and continue their inexplicable domination of San Jose, they were flat against poor teams like New Jersey and Vancouver as well.
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.
