Three out of Four is still not good enough

The Good -

- Ennis creating the first goal
- Stafford providing the offense
- Miller keeping them in it
- Myers strong defensively
- Regehr-Sekera
- Late PKing

The Bad -

- Unlucky bounce on the Hagelin goal
- Gaustad-Kaleta get caught going for the same hit on the Gaborik goal
- Kaleta flatfooted on the GWG? Ack.
- Hey Tom, show some effort will ya? Bad shoulder or snit or whatever, he's MIA.

The Ugly -

- Another loss, loser point or not.

The team just doesn't have the same drive as last year. Kaleta looked like a fool on the gwg.

I don't know what to root for. Playoffs are close but yet so far away for this team.

Schedule doesn't help, I don't think this team can do it. Which means we end up with a horrible spot in the draft and no playoffs. That is what will happen and it will ****ing suck

Disappointing. 3 out of 4 is not too bad.

Big props to Sekera, this is the best stretch of games I've seen him play in his career. His decision making with the puck is superb and he looks so confident out there. Myers was physical and good tonight.

We need more difference makers on this team.

Trade vanek and Roy for a Bonafide center and mediocre winger

We done. Needed both. Ik you can't win every game and if you're gonna lose, lose in OT or SO but I mean the team is gonna be in the exact same spot or worse by the end of the night. Sorry guys.

The drive for the 13th pick continues! Seriously, this is the worst. They won't sell now with being on the bubble, and their pick is gonna be mediocre, just like the on ice product. Unless they can somehow make the playoffs...

3 out of 4 would be a good enough pace.

If Darce decides to sell, then we may go out with a bang (a death bang, full of losses, which would be fine with me).

The way this team is playing lately is so infuriating, because I know they're capable of playing well. Just so inconsistent. I thought they played a great game tonight; Rangers are just the better team.

If only the Sabres could develop a Ryan Callahan of their own. He's everything they need in a forward.

Can win 3 of 4 pts without winning a game in regulation or OT. What a country!

SUPER UGLY: Should have been on a power play for last 30 or so second of regulation and start of OT. BS no call.

They also have 2 games in hand. Jets got a point as well. Washington also received 2 points with 1 game in hand. We have a brutal schedule coming up as well. The Canucks game is basically guaranteed loss. They haven't lost in like forever...

I think Fla jumps to 3rd and WPG to 8th. And we have 2 gms in hand on WPG I believe...
