Analyzing The Sabres Streak

As a public service to numbers geeks and the attention span impaired, we now bring you a quick analysis of the Buffalo Sabres’ current 10-4-1 streak which has allowed them to close to within five points of a playoff spot:

Buffalo’s stellar record as of late can really be attributed to their power play (13-46, 28.2%) and their ability to win the close ones (5-1-1 in one-goal games).  More numbers:

Leading scorers: Thomas Vanek (6-13-19), Jason Pominville (6-9-15), Drew Stafford (7-5-12), Tyler Ennis (3-7-10), Jochen Hecht (5-4-9).

Goaltending: Ryan Miller - started all 15 games, 2.71 GAA, .919 save percentage.

Special teams: Power play - 13-46 (28.2%); Penalty killing - 47-55 (85.5%).

Goal differential: In regulation - 47 goals for, 42 against; 5 on 5 - 36 goals for, 30 against.

Location, location, location: 4-2-0 at home, 6-2-1 away.

Against quality opposition: 6-2-0 vs. teams currently in playoff position.
