    Something about it was just strange.

    That's a good sign. But they need a more complete, well rounded game.

    Lightning games will be a test
    Not sure who I hate more: Crosby or Marchand.

    Just so much bad puck handling in their own zone. Two bad giveaways lead to two goals.

    If this team can clean that up, they could be a tough team to beat.

    This may be a tough road trip but they will learn a lot from it.

    They need better goaltending too. For a temporary solution, it's fine. But long term, especially if you hope to make the playoffs, they need an upgrade.

    Nothing against either goalie, I like them both. And yes, it's a huge improvement over last year. But the bar needs to be higher

    The Sabres defense, when at full strength, is young and has been allowing a ton of shots on net. They were missing their 3 best, most veteran (*cough*) defensemen night. They iced:

    Power (age 19) & Bryson (5' 9")
    Casey Fitzgerald & Kale Clague (a recent AHL call-up)
    Pilut (has very little NHL minutes) & Lybushkin (who is still nursing injury)

    Missing: Dahlin, Jokiharju, Samuelsson

    The Sabres won at home on Monday & Wednesday, lost away on Friday & Saturday against very good teams. While I would have like to see more out of Thompson, Okposo, and Olofsson last night, they never stopped playing. Notable hard play from Cozens and Peterka all night long was encouraging.

    The Sabres need a Victor Hedman at veteran defenseman IMO.

    Zegmus Girgensons stats.

    Girgensons is off to a solid start. Maybe his best ever. While he has settled in his role as a checking forward here, he has 3 goals in the first 12 games and is a +1.

    Remember when he was drafted? 2012 - 1st round #14 pick, behind Mikhail Grigorenko (#12) who is now playing back in Russia. Other Sabres picks from that draft were:

    D - Jake McCabe (Chicago) - 2nd round
    G - Linus Ullmark (Boston) - 6th round

    Never figured Girgensons would be the one to stick from that draft class. But he fits his role well this year.

    Comrie made several incredible saves last night. Keep reminding myself that Hasek didn't win them all either. Comrie is a keeper. The other Sabres will play hard in front of him.

    Sabres are pathetic. No leader out there. Power, Quinn need to shoot more. They are too timid and pass when they have shot opportunies. Very frustrating to watch. Defense is weak without Samuelsson & Jokiharju. They are about to lose their 3rd in a row. This time to a subpar opponent. I could handle losing on the road to the Hurricanes and the Lightning, but they gotta win this one. No jump tonight.

    For all his aforementioned talent, does Krebs actually ever score goals??? I never see it.

    They’ve fallen back down to earth. Tage is a beast. The rest of the team just isn’t there.

    Cozens scores 2 of the 3 goals for Arizona. One he tips in and the other off his skate. Power coughs up a goal in the first minute. Bad bounce night and unable to finish all but 1 chance.

    3 losses in a row. It is what it is.
