Buffalo Sabres Daily Dashberboard March 8, 2014


Last nights game couldn’t have been any uglier, but couldn’t have gone any better for the Buffalo Sabres.  Sure it was a terrible game and the inconsistent ref’s ruined a good portion of the game, but the Sabres gave up two points to a team that could take a nose dive towards that final spot in the last weeks of the regular season.

Here are your Saturday morning links to read over while your curled up on the couch relaxing after a hard week.

The prodigal son returns to Sunrise, Roberto Luongo back in Florida and gets a shutout in his second Florida debut.  [CBS Sports].

Tim Murray finally had the stones to do what Darcy should have done many times, blow it up and start from scratch, well almost.  What this trade deadline means for the future of the Buffalo Sabres.  [Bleacher Report].

I am glad that I am not the only one to think that watching Michal Neuvirth last night wearing Washington red equipment was weird.  Sure I know it was his first game, but even Ryan Miller ditched the Buffalo Sabres helmet for his new gig in St. Louis.  [Russian Machine Never Breaks].

Penalties killed the Buffalo Sabres last night, and Marcus Foligno was the domino that started the fall.  He doesn’t agree with the call (who did?) and likely could hear from the league.  [Hockey Buzz].

Nicolas Deslauriers made his NHL debut last night with his new NHL team.  [Die By the Blade].

Changes in what circumstances led the NHL to give back their forfeited draft pick and reduced the fine for the New  Jersey Devils for cap circumvention in 2010 with the signing of Ilya Kovalchuk.  Kovalchuck has since left the NHL and joined the KHL, retiring from the North American game [ESPN].

What storylines await us as the season draws to a close?
