Sabres No Longer Control Their Playoff Destiny

from Bucky Gleason of hte Buffalo News,

The Sabres are going to need assistance from the hockey gods if they’re going to make the playoffs. Buffalo dropped two points behind Washington, plus the tiebreaker, with three games remaining. The Sabres play the Leafs on Tuesday and finish the season with road games in Philadelphia and Boston.

Buffalo’s plan Saturday called for picking up two points against an inferior team with an inexperienced goaltender, hopping on the team bus and declaring two points at the Peace Bridge.

Instead, their performance came to illustrate the season. Buffalo was sloppy, out of sorts, banged up, and, at times, listless. They came together and made a push just past the midpoint, provided hope late in the game and lost in the end.

If the Sabres miss the playoffs, that’s how this season will be remembered.
