Sabres hit wrong checkpoints in disappointing season

BUFFALO — “The main thing is start talking about it and just put it out there that we want to win a championship. We want to do it the right way, and we just have to hit a few checkpoints along the way and set ourselves up for it.” – Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, September 16, 2011
The checkpoints, the seminal moments of 2011-12 – Milan Lucic’s season-altering hit on Miller and the Sabres’ tepid response, an annihilation in Detroit during a 12-game road losing streak, their fall into the Eastern Conference cellar Feb. 17 and others – doomed the high-priced, underachieving club.

Here’s some of what went wrong and contributed to the Sabres finishing ninth and missing the playoffs for the sixth time 10 seasons:
They never fully recovered from Lucic’s Nov. 12 thump

Miller wasn’t his normal self

They couldn’t score

Injuries hurt

They couldn’t win on the road midseason
