Yeah, I think the Sabres get blown out on the scoreboard, but it might be the kind of physical game some expected out of the first meeting (I didn't think that one would be much of one). I hope Ruff puts McCormick in for Gerbe. If we're going to lose, go down swinging!

I still can't fathom how the Sabres won tonight with 15 shots. That's not going to cut it tomorrow...or in just about any game going forward.

perhaps Im among the minority who sees Foligno nearly putting himself through the boards on a failed check as a good since nobody else on the team seemed willing to hit anything tonight? Kaleta was invisible save his near miss...scott didnt play half the game, weber was okay again as usual...ott was physical but wasnt in the "hitting" sense...

Grigs needs more ice time and better line mates and frankly that drop pass to no one shows it...if he were centering vanek and/or poms that woulda been a scoring chance...

hecht gotta go

Leopold actually has looked better lately...

Brennan gotta go...how many games can we keep this kid a sabre for his "shot" he doesnt actually use?


idk???Im baffled we won still...

Grigs play hasn't warranted any more ice time or better line mates. He is behind coho and ennis and that isn't going to change.

If he were centering Vanek and Pom, this team would be in even worse shape.

It was vintage Hasek-era Sabres. If it's 1996, I think I might tell the 2013 version of myself to think about a different career path...

I never said I didn't feel the same way, just thought of it because of what the Isles have done recently with the acquisition of the Thomas contract.

Well, I never said anything about specific players.
It was more just a commentary on how disgusting this group of players is at times.

It's actually statistically worse than anything Hasek saw.

And yes, I do give credit to Hodgson (and Pominville too for that matter) for not being bums tonight. The rest of 'em though... pretty deep on the **** list. Maybe Enroth, for his superior door opening skills makes the cut too.

I wouldnt mind seeing ennis back on wing with grigs at center but maybe thats just me. I feel stafford is responsible for a lot of our secondary scoring problems aswell

Won with 15 shots. The Islanders are bad. The bar has been set low.

IDK, I thought the Islanders played great tonight. Miller stood on his head and Nabby was hot garbage. We had no business winning this game.

Nabby was so bad...lol. His team musta been like "WTF?"

Isles D and Sabres Forwards made it an EZ win for Nabby tonight, but he wouldn't have any of it.

Let's imagine what the score might've been if the teams had switched goalies before the game....LOL

They're worse than us now, and will be worse than us at the end of the year. Goaltending is part of that, I agree. My earlier post wasn't a brag mind you, just a statement.

Well Brennan did have a total of 7 SOG the previous two games when he had PP time.
Kinda hard to get a lot of shots with 8 minutes of ice time and 0:00 on the PP tonight.
Small sample size, but Brennan has more shots per 60 minutes played than Ehrhoff.

What has Hecht done to warrant playing 18 minutes?

outshot forty-freaking-three to fifteen, yet still manage to win??? Wow.

I fully expect we'll get slaughtered by the Bruins tomorrow, but nice to see this team string together two wins.

Pretty much everything that has been said...but Weber was **** today. Horrible game from him, seemed like he was turning the puck over every time he had it.

If we can win playing this badly, we can be decent going forward. The rest of the team needs to elevate their game. Miller and the first line have spotted them 5 wins.

A bunch of misfits and waiver pickups just massively outplayed 90% of this team.

I'm a Weber fan, but he needs to be playing under 18 minutes a game. Not the 22+ he got tonight.

Despite the fact he doesn't accomplish much on the ice, he's usually not on it for a goal against. So there's at least that.
