Buffalo Sabres Daily Dasherboard April 2, 2014


Good morning!  The Buffalo Sabres picked up their twenty-first win of the season last night, needing an extended shootout to defeat the New Jersey Devils.  Hopefully you survived April Fool’s Day without too many practical jokes.  If you think the Buffalo Sabres pulled one over on you last night, no – Ville Leino did score a goal that counted on the scoresheet, but not for his individual stats.

I don’t normally score in a Buffalo Sabres uniform, but when I do, its a game clinching shootout attempt in the ninth round.  Way to show up Ville Leino. [Sports Media 101].

The Rochester Americans have struggled as of late, need help from other teams, and need to win as many as seven of their nine remaining games to make the playoffs.  The Amerks have made the playoffs the last two seasons, but were swept by the Toronto Marlies both times.  [Rochester D&C].

    Some good links in there Tim. While reading them, it makes me question the next few years of the team and which direction it will take. Theres ‘ dreams ‘, reality and ‘ whats available to build with ‘ ( something between those dreams and reality ).

    I guess we have to see if Buffalo is a Buyer in free-agency. That will be the biggest indicator of how the Sabres will move.
