Big win last night, but unfortunately the pesky Hurricanes also continue to keep pace with the Sabres; however, the Hurricanes’ win could have been a beneficial one for the Sabres. With the ‘Canes winning last night the Sabres are only 2 points behind 6th place Montreal and if you’ve been following hockey you know the Canadiens have not been playing all too well.
The Sabres next string of games are very big. Although the Sabres play the Capitals on Saturday and it doesn’t look like they’ll be catching them in the standings too soon, it still can help if they win their next 3, which also include the Hurricanes and the Lightning. Now, this could be interesting because if the Sabres clear out their next 3 opponents, you could see the Sabres leapfrog into 5th place. Now wouldn’t that be nice?
