Anyone who read my Sabres Gamenight posts before the last two Sabres games would think that I have about as much hope for the Sabres as I do for the Bills. That is far from the truth, I am just a very realistic Sabres fan.
Coach Lindy Ruff put out the challenge, calling the loss to New Jersey disgraceful. The team responded by shutting down two of the best offensive threats in the NHL.
With a well rested Miller, and a team that should be running higher on adrenaline now more than ever in the last two seasons; the Rangers should not be as much of a challenge tomorrow night like they were just last week.
The Sabres still need to figure out their offensive woes – Lalime is not going to win you many 2-1 games.
Hopefully the play of Lalime in todnights game will open Lindy’s eyes – sometimes the way I write I seem to think that Lalime is the worst goaltender since Ray Emery to don pads in the NHL. Thats not true, I actually like Lalime, but the man needs to play a lot more to be effective.
I have to give props again to Thomas Vanek, the other night he out-muscled Alex Ovechkin and tonight he threw off Kane and scored one hell of a pretty power play goal.
MaCarthur added a talley to keep pace with Thomas Vanek for the team lead in goals.
Tomorrow night is another night; and the Sabres look to contune to work on their division lead against the New York Rangers.
