    Still can't bury pucks. Should have been an easy win.

    BFD. They won two games in a row over awful teams that they are expected to win. But did so by the skin of their teeth. Not impressive.

    Now. They have to play excellent teams the next 6 games. Let's see what their record is over the next 5: Carolina, Florida, Tampa Bay, Vegas, Winnipeg & Toronto. Let's see the offense put pucks in the net.

    Tired of Skinner's cherry-picking and play on the periphery. At age 30, he's not the same after this injury, whatever it was. His setback has affected Tuch as well. Granato is asking too much of Tuch as he seems to be the only actual NHL quality winger they have right now. Beat Carolina, Florida and Vegas and I'll change my tune.

    Honestly I’d be more concerned if we were in a playoff position.

    None of our supposed offensive stars did anything but we beat a bad team 2-1 because a defenseman who hasn’t scored all season- and probably won’t score again- got a goal.

    If we were going to make the playoffs, I’d be concerned because playing like that isn’t going to beat any playoff teams. But in a down year, any way we eek out a win is a good thing.

    Well, maybe tomorrow night we can do something we haven't done all year, win Three in a row.

    What's up with the 6pm games suddenly... I will say though that I haven't watched for a month, I'll check out the game tomorrow .

    They eeked out two wins against teams below them in the standings. Big effing deal. Win 3 of the next 5 then you can brag on them. I'd bet on them losing all 5 before I'd bet on 3 wins. 2 of 5 is the ceiling. 1 of 5 is most likely.

    Not sure what the argument here outside people whining after wins.

    You call it whining. I call it pointing out the obvious. They suck even in winning.

    Ugly wins or wins when your goalie steals one for you are something to celebrate against good teams. I'll take a win any way I can get it then. Against the bottom feeders it just highlights how bad of a team this is that they struggle to beat them.

    It should be noted that Carolina(who Buffalo is in action against this evening)played last night.

    Annoying as hell. Sabres in the defensive zone, Dahlin gets tied up with his man, they fall on UPL, Dahlin gets the penalty.

    Sabres in the offensive zone, Dahlin drives the net, gets shoved into Marin, andů Dahlin still gets the penalty.

    And now they have the lead.

    Yes they are... and we cracked the 3 in a row curse. I don't expect much this season but maybe... like the last decade of maybe's... we can move it on up.

    If they can build on them which they did tonight. I'm far from convinced they've turned the corner. The one thing that gives a little hope is they have a goalie winning games for them now. That covers up for a lot of other warts they have on offense. How nice would that be if UPL has reached a point where this is who he is now. Fingers crossed. They've got a very tough schedule the rest of the way. Finishing above .500 will be an accomplishment at this point.

    UPL is now a top 10 goalie in the league. GAA anyways.

    This dude is proving his worth and it's great to see. I couldbt be happier for him and the team for his growth.

    Now to get the core scoring again.....

    This just goes to prove the point that goalies need more time to cook and season; I, like way too many, thought UPL wasn't going to cut it(and granted, having double hip surgery so early in his career didn't help matters). Keep him as the #1 and Levi can enter as #2 when he outgrows the AHL(and Devon isn't doing too shabby down there, either).

    Uh.... open your eyes to see the answer. This year there are a litany of losses where they needed just one more goal to either win or take a game to OT/SO to get the point. The Islanders have 14 OT losses vs the Sabres 4. That's 10 points in the standings. And the Islanders clearly don't have the supposed talent that the Sabres do, but they are still in the play-off hunt.

    That 10 points isclearly due to poor motivation by their supposedly great coach. News flash: Granato isn't as great as Adams sells him to be. A better coach would be eeking out goals and standing points where this Sabres team has way, way too often come out of the gait lethargic, listless and sloppy.

    And losses aren't wins and the Sabres are sadly lacking the wins they were expected to have at this point.
