The Buffalo Sabres tied the franchise mark of 43 skaters/goalies used in a single season, and despite how the remaining 12 games shake out – they could easily set a new franchise benchmark in that regard.
The Buffalo Sabres offense took charge last night and scored just enough to get them over the 133 goals in 70 games mark set by the 1953-1954 Chicago Blackhawks. Buffalo could still call short of the modern era record of 151 goals in the 1997-1998 season.
