Has everyone’s anxiety levels dropped yet, because last night’s game gave me a panic attack. Thankfully Ryan Miller looked like his Vezina form again and out-shined consistent goaltending rival Henrik Lundqvist. Sure, last night wasn’t a pretty win, but hey, it’s a win. Too bad Carolina also picked a win as well.
It’s going to be a long and tiring road for the Sabres, but thankfully games in hand, hot goaltending, and possibly a more beefed up offense will lead this team into the playoffs. Personally, I’d take an 8th place spot and a 1st round exit over just missing the playoffs. Sure, it’s disappointing, but at least they are there.
Personally I’ve been really intrigued about the Sabres’ plight about making the playoffs. It has made the season very interesting. Every game really matters and a loss is another shot in the leg.
