Morning Line- Evander Kane

 "It must be a joke floating around the league: You score two goals against the Buffalo Sabres and you're going to win the hockey game."

 "We've got to have more guys that want to be a difference maker, want to have the puck on their stick.  We've got to be harder to play against."

-Evander Kane of the Buffalo Sabres after a 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.  Mike Harrinton of hte Buffalo News has more and game highlights are below.

The Buffalo Sabres Continue To Slump

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,

When Jack Eichel went down last month, Murray said he would watch his Buffalo Sabres closely and pick up the phone if it looked like things aren't working.

Memo to the GM: Things aren't working.

Eichel isn't coming back any time soon and the Sabres need help. Their season is already slipping away because of an offense that looks historically impotent.

Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues in Scottrade Center was yet another exhibit for the prosecution of a Buffalo offense that has fast become a punchline in the NHL.

The Sabres are 5-7-4 and have either been shut out or scored just one goal eight times -- exactly half their games. They're 0-3-2 in the last five games, scoring only five goals. They have 30 goals overall, a last-in-the-league average of 1.88. Those are astonishing numbers, injuries or not.

You can say 16 games into an 82-game season is early and you would be right. But when you look at the standings, it's not early. Teams usually don't make the playoffs in October and November but they can sure miss them in the season's first two months.

Zach Bogosian Out Weeks With Knee Sprain

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,

The Sabres have been dealing with injuries to their top offensive players. Now they have to add one of their best defensemen to the list.

Zach Bogosian has a sprained knee and could miss a month. Buffalo coach Dan Bylsma said Thursday morning it’s a sprain of the medial collateral ligament, somewhere between a Grade 1 and 2, and Bogosian will be out "weeks."

“We played a good defensive team game, and Zach was a big part of that,” Bylsma said in KeyBank Center. “That’s something we’re going to miss having him out of the lineup.”

The Sabres are already dealing with injuries to Evander Kane and Jack Eichel, they did not need this.

Videos- A Frustrating Night For The Buffalo Sabres Topped Off With Sean Monahan’s OT Goal

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,

Of course, the Sabres felt Monahan shouldn't have even been on the ice at that point. A few seconds before the goal, he got the puck away from Sam Reinhart by drilling the Buffalo winger from behind into the end boards. Referee Brad Meier simply stood and watched.

"There has to be a call there," Lehner said. "He hits him from behind. It's fairly clear. We get judged day by day and I just think it was a terrible ref performance today, absolutely terrible."

Coach Dan Bylsma certainly agreed. Asked by a Calgary reporter for his view on what led to the winning goal, a stern-looking Bylsma shot back, "The cross-check in the back? That's what it looked like from where I was at."

Below, watch the Frolik goal which was waived off by an early whistle but the officials huddled and reversed the call.
