I thought it was a very even game by both teams and that there was not a trap anywhere, and if it was, it looked like both teams did to me
1-3-1 = Trap

I think Sekera is in the "Andrej Meszaros in Philly" role--a relatively young, capable (Slovak) D-man who no longer has pressure on him because of the incredible depth ahead of him and thus can just play his game. The microscope isn't on him as much now. Meszaros flourished as a result, let's see if Sekera can do the same.

He played like this last season for pockets of games. 10 here, 7 there, and a long stretch of about 15. But who's counting? It's been peek performance for 7, and I'm curious too see if he goes to 20 or more. If he is still playing like this for 25-30 game, then has officially "arrived" IMO. Consistency is the best sign of unwavering confidence that a young hockey player can exhibit. And when your confidence is unwavering, you have arrived.

The nasty stuff around the net is something he has shown a need to improve upon over the past two years. And so now, he doesn't even let anybody get within 20 feet of the net. Problem solved! lol

Ugly effort up front. I thought the D and Miller were fine, for the most part. I'm fine with where we're at, and hope to take at least 3 on this homestand.

Kaleta and Goose had some sharp looking shifts
Eric Brewer was really steady all night for Tampa
Vanek he's moving without the puck as well as ever

B -
So many offsides
The Sabres can beat the trap but only when they play with discipline. Going into this game a trap shouldn't have been a shock

Thought Stamkos had a weak game assist non withstanding

U -
Ennis getting hurt
Leino "The Finnish Feeder"
Artem Kriukov being listed on The Hockey News Sabres' Roster
