Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Buffalo News,
Daniel Briere was silent Thursday night. The Buffalo Sabres’ top scorer was idled by Ottawa during a 5-2 loss to open the Eastern Conference finals. The cocaptain, who led the Sabres in scoring during the regular season and is pacing them in the playoffs, didn’t register a shot. It was the first time he was kept at zero in the postseason and just the 10th time in the 94 games since October.
He left HSBC Arena without comment despite media requests.

Seems like falling behind by a couple goals is tantamount to a collective whiff of ammonia for the Sabres. Their nostrils flare, eyes widen and they start to get real serious about things. It’s too bad they’ve often got one skate in the grave when they come to…
Not sure if Daniel Briere is hurt or what, but he looked like the only person in Buffalo who didn’t care whether the Sabres won Game 1 or not. My advice to him would be up the intensity or start asking Maxim Afinogenov about which press box seats have the best sight lines…
more on the game last night…
