Grading the Buffalo Sabres - Week ending 2/19/17

Vote in the player grades polls for this last week

Your Three Stars from last week: the power play, Evander Kane and Robin Lehner. The Three Goats are Dan Bylsma, the penalty kill and Nicolas Deslauriers.

Here is the LINK to the spreadsheet with all of this season’s results.

It was so close to being a perfect week for the Buffalo Sabres as they approached winning four in a row, but in the second game of a back-to-back we got blown out badly to finish 3-1-0 going into the ‘bye week’.

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.
