Anyway, the team was on their 10th game in 14 nights, and it showed. The upcoming break is going to be huge for the team, in paticular a guy like Boyes, who's first full day in town was yesterday (and had also just come off of a decent sized roadie with St. Louis).
He commented in his post-game presser about how "some of their guys go down easy" so he's already working the officiating side of things for their finale. I expect it will come up before the game too, probably in Ruff's game day skate press huddle.

Precisely. They put us on because we are a good ratings draw. We watch and we watch more than just the Sabres. What was the quote from a few years ago? Paraphrasing a TV exec from VS. - "Buffalo is a force of nature".
