Seems simple enough to me.

2012:
The Sabres had more bad luck than good luck last season.
The Sabres had more injuries than usual.
The Sabres had the most back to back games in the league.

Result:

The Sabres missed the playoffs by 3 points.

2013:
The Sabres luck could easily flip and they find more than an extra 3 points as a result.
The Sabres injuries you can never predict. Most fans I believe would agree that it would be unlike that we have the same or more injuries as last season.
The Sabres back to back games have been cut in half. That alone could get them in the playoffs.

Any of these three could see them get a 8th-7th seed. If all three happen they could challenge for the division. But, that takes significantly more 'ifs'
