Good morning Buffalo Sabres fans – it’s a two cup of coffee morning. Despite the late night its a fairly decent morning weather wise, oh, and if
you haven’t figured it out yet, the Buffalo Sabres beat the San Jose Sharks last night. So all in all, its a good morning. Here are your daily links from around the internet about the Buffalo Sabres and the National Hockey League.
Last night’s game was supposed to be a classic mismatch of rebuilding underdog versus a power house destined for a Stanley Cup in the immediate future. No one could have been more wrong. If there is betting in hockey, most people would have bet the farm on the Sharks last night. [San Jose Mercury News].
It seemed like the hockey gods wanted to reward the Buffalo Sabres for something, because San Jose actually won last nights game in overtime. [Yahoo Sports].
Of course the storyline in San Jose isn’t about how they needed overtime to beat the Buffalo Sabres – or how it was a two goal lapse in the Sabre defense late – its about the no goal call. Control what you can control San Jose, and take the loss on the chin – it happens. [Working The Corners].
Could the Buffalo Sabres be trying to go in a different direction with Mikhail Grigorenko already? That’s doubtful – but one prospect writer thinks he will be an NHL bust and will run to the KHL to hone his craft. [My NHL Trade Rumors].
Could the league be pinning an automatic ban on goalies that leave the defensive zone to fight? [CBS Sports].
