Damn its a difficult game tonight. In one sense I want the team to lose so that the pick stays high and it makes it harder on the Leafs to catch Buffalo. On the other hand I can watch the game tonight and I like watching wins....
Sabres have to win to keep the Leafs at bay. I have no problem losing as it gives us separation from other teams for top picks and as a bonus, prevents the Leafs from getting too close to the 8th spot.
We have two games remaining vs Buffalo, and one game remaining vs Leafs.
We beat the Leafs (though we gave them a point) in the last game there... So I will maintain that to do our best as spoilers against both teams, we need to win the three remaining games against them both.
Cheer for Jersey or Carolina or Atlanta, all who have realistic shots at holding or gaining that 8th spot.
