Game Seventeen had a little bit of everything. It was a lengthy game. It had a shutout against the Sabres that prolonged it another round. Perhaps strangest of all, the final round consisted of 6 contestants!
Entering that seventh and eventual deciding round 6 contestants remained. Of those 6, 5 different Sabres were selected for the game vs Montreal. Stafford, Vanek, Connolly, Ennis and Myers. Unfortunately Buffalo would only score twice. Both goals from the unselected Nathan Gerbe, one of which was unassisted. Which of course leaves just two assists in the game that could have been earned by a selected Sabre. Sekera managed to pick up one of those assists, although just like Gerbe he too was not chosen.
So which of those 5 Sabres was able to grab that assist? The answer is the same as that of Game Sixteen.
Therefore, thanks to Tyler Myers' assist, the winner of Sabres Survivor Game Seventeen is...
Enjoy this win for the next few days as Game Eighteen begins Friday night against the Florida Panthers
