Two great goalies, one made a mistake. AFAIC every player except the two goalies and Sutter deserves a giant U.

Taro Tsujimoto 03-15-2011 09:12 PM

Good:

Miller kept us in it. Too bad the offense didn't show up

Bad:

Ward can **** off!

CrankyJay 03-15-2011 09:13 PM

Montador looked horrible. He should go back to riding the bench to think about it for awhile.

Morrison is a ****ing train wreck out there as well.

Ron Barr 03-15-2011 09:15 PM

Ugh, Ward completely owned us tonight. What makes it worse is how much the Rangers dominated tonight. It's hard to see them score with such ease, and us not be able to put a single damn puck through.

ZZamboni 03-15-2011 09:16 PM

G- BOTH goalies were awesome tonight. Um.. The free towels? BOTH defenses got it done (mostly)

B- our offense looked lost at times, lazy in others.

U - Stall, pace of game, PBP

ImpressedDAHagent 03-15-2011 09:17 PM

Good
the sabres new locker room. (time to walk on that logo)
ennis and myers are young
stafford looked like a big man

bad

the team looked mentally exhausted
too much half effort
we couldn't get the puck away from the pads
nothing from the bottom 6.

ugly
two made up calls.

Montag DP 03-15-2011 09:17 PM

Despite the shot count, we really didn't get much extended offensive pressure after the first period. Ward played really well, but honestly he didn't have that many difficult saves.

Ugly game all-around, except for Miller. That was a snooze-fest to watch. I don't know why we can't get up for important games like this one.

letsgosabres5225 03-15-2011 09:18 PM

Good:

Miller

Bad:

The offence.
The brain farts in the third. We looked really tired.

Ugly:
Having to root for Toronto tomorrow. Vomit.

Carolina sat back and laughed as Buffalo passed their way into the most embarrassing, boring, frustrating loss of the season. Not one good. Zero. Horrid. Passing was a joke. Shot selection was sad. That last 30 seconds was disgraceful. Carolina shut them down. Completely shut them down from the second period on. And instead of dumping and chasing, forechecking hard. They try to pass their way through the neutral zone.

Vanek looked terrible
I wanted to duff Monty
Myers tried to do too much
Boyes had his worst game as a Sabre
I didn't even notice Gerbe
No physicality
No passion
They got frustrated because they couldn't get their way and gave up.

Ennis/Mancari/Pommers/Connolly were our best forwards tonight, but they all disappeared in the third.

This.

He had a few really bad giveaways.

Tonight's game was a good indication of what this team really needs to add in the off-season. They lack a go to offensive threat and they lack a shut down defensive pair. You've got a handful of guys that are average to above average on offense, but nobody you can send out there to make something happen on a consistent basis. On defense you have another handful of average players with one great player (Myers) and one awful player (Morrisonn). They need a top 3 (not top 6, they have enough of those) offensive threat and a stay at home rock to play with Myers and force Morrisonn out.

Neidermeyer's sense of desperation on the only goal of the game, was beyond disinterest. It was like he had the theme song of Family Ties in his head and didn't want it to end. So he does not provide much to the fore-check, doesn't win face-offs or even play center anymore, and he looks kind of bored out there.

Is there nobody else?


Hats off too Miller who played great.


I thought the team played pretty well, but the Canes definitely wanted it more and Ward was really tough.

Big lose, but guess who is still in 8th place? We are.

PuckSim8 03-15-2011 09:21 PM

Good:
Last VS. game of the season.

Great. Lindy ruined him already.

When's our next road trip?

These home clunkers are getting old.

We won't be saturday night.

SabresFan44 03-15-2011 09:26 PM

Mark Messier just called me and told me WE WILL MAKE THE PLAYOFFS. Now he didnt say the word WE, but he said Buffalo, so we have nothing to worry about.

This loss hurts yea, but I could see us winning the next few. It will be ok.

drinking bleach irl 03-15-2011 09:26 PM

Despite being upset, this game wasn't so bad. Minus one gaffe from Miller and it's Ward holding them in the game.

The sabres didn't get many quality chances at all. A lot of the shots were low percentage wristers into his chest. Even the "best" save of the game was just a pad save on a rolling puck along the ice. Any NHL goaltender stops that.

I normally don't mind Eddie Olczyk, but he was annoying the **** out of me tonight. I wanted to go through the TV and punch him.

Anyone else?
