The Sabres won tonight. Not only that, but they beat a team that wasn’t the Toronto Maple Leafs, which is utterly astonishing. What’s more, they did so in every phase of the game. Where they have made a season out of squandering great goaltending performances from Ryan Miller, the team put in the work against a better team and it paid off with a victory.
The most important thing about this game though was the Sabres response to a waived off goal in the second period. Momentum is serious business in the NHL, and even good teams have had trouble recovering from a tough break like that. But they (and the crowd inside the First Niagara) seemed to feed off of the frustration and got past the adversity. They got momentum on their side and kept going, survived a Senators surge to start the third period and pushed it to OT and the shootout.
I’ll say this about the shootout; it was ugly and I still have indigestion. After Matt Moulson scored on the opening shot with a nice little ...

This is one of the plays that kind of made a stir tonight on the internet.... I think it's a blown call, but I guess if you read the explanation, it makes sense.At 15:30of the second period in the Senators/Sabres game, the Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck entered the Ottawa net. The referee informed the Situation Room that he had a delayed hi-sticking...
One of Ottawa's better efforts of the season against the Flyers on Monady night was rewarded with a victory. Now, they have a chance to keep the winning streak rolling into the weekend, with a pair of games against the lowly Buffalo Sabres.
Ottawa, who has certainly played better of late, must continue to keep the ball rolling in the right direction. They eliminated much of...
Despite all of the negative statistics this season, the Sabres are a perfect 4-0 in shootouts this year.
Ryan Miller improved to 46-27 all-time in shootouts, the most wins via the tiebreaker in NHL history.
It's been nice to see Girgensons begin to break out and I'm wondering how often we will be able to see these types of effort. If it's a preview of what he'...
