Although I may have lost some of my hair the past couple of weeks because of these games, I must say they have been entertaining. Personally, I would like to see the Sabres jump another spot, but I’d be happy with them just making it at this point. Last week before the Sabres weekend games it even looked like the Sabres had a chance to catch up to their opponents tonight in the playoffs; however, the Lightning have put together a nice string of wins that have securely removed themselves from being caught by anyone.
Right now the Sabres officially sit in 8th place– 1 point behind the Ranges and the Canadiens. With a win tonight, the Sabres can again leapfrog both the Rangers and Canadiens and put themselves in 6 place. Expect this kind of leapfrogging for the remainder of the season. I don’t expect the Sabres to miss the playoffs, but where they sit before the season is over is beyond me.
