The Buffalo Sabres Remain Unbeaten At Home

from Mike Harrnngton of the Buffalo News,

It was just two years ago when the Buffalo Sabres won only 11 home games all season. It equaled a franchise low and was the fewest by any NHL team since 2007. It was an embarrassment, an affront to the fans who have given their hearts -- and their dollars -- to this franchise.

It was the year of General Manager Jason Botterill's infamous press box door slam during an ugly matinee against Los Angeles, and the year of a 7-1 loss to Dallas during a similar Kids Day special. Suzy and Johnny weren't badgering Mommy and Daddy to bring them back.

But the kiddies and everyone else in the 716 might want to head downtown now because there's plenty of fun to be had at the rink.

The Sabres are 8-1-1 overall for just the third time in their history. They're 5-0 at home also for the third time – and the first since 1984.

Tuesday's 4-3 overtime thriller over San Jose was a wild slapstick affair filled with frustration and fun. No one experienced more emotion than captain Jack Eichel.
