What’s with the Sabres?
Suddenly, they’re hot as hell.
Nobody seems to know what’s caused their once horrible offense to pop into overdrive. Crazy overdrive. They scored eight goals against the Kings Friday, six against Toronto Saturday and seven over the Thrashers yesterday. That’s 21 goals in three games.
If Buffalo keeps this pace up, the NHL won’t have to change any of its scoring rules. Buffalo will just compensate for the rest of the league.
Buffalo is now four points behind the Islanders and Canadiens for the seventh or eighth seed. The Isles have been playing well but Montreal has lost three in a row. The Sabres have a real shot at the playoffs. The end of the season is going to get pretty interesting.
