From the bit I've been hearing, it sounded like Buffalo took the back to back losses last week pretty hard, and it showed in the NYI game Saturday, and that's the sign they are for real. I think they'll be pretty pumped for most of those games and have their act together.
So long as they stay on the attack for 60 minutes, and one or two players get their head into the game (i.e. Vanek) I see no reason to expect less than 10 points out of that stretch. None of those teams are unbeatable (well, maybe we can catch the Sens napping )
