Alright team. Tough loss. Regroup. Try to fight it out this game.

I know this team can do a lot better but it's a matter of time and development. I think we stay in it.

Matt Hackett is in Pittsburgh. So either Miller gets a guaranteed night off in the booth, or Enroth is sick.

Yea, I'd prefer Miller not start this game. Give him a rest after the last two games, and Pittsburgh is not a team he normally plays his best against.

Wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the Sabres put up 3 or 4. The real problem is how many goals will Pittsburgh score? If the Sabres give up the kinds of chances they did in the first two games against this squad with no Miller, it could get ugly.

They keep the game too wide and Pittsburgh takes advantage of that. Think RonRol said that last night they have to tighte it up. But I like the scoring chances the kids are making. If they can work on the final steps in finishing them, the team can benefit heavily from it.

Not to mention Vanek coming damn close but no cigar these 2 games.

@BuffNewsVogl

Updates: Miller is in Pittsburgh, Hackett is on roster exemption (meaning Miller still eligible to play), Rolston not at arena.
