Thank the Penguins

The Sabres ended up winning again last night in dominant fashion against the Leafs, 6-2. We can thank the Penguins for their 7-1 win against the Flyers today. The Sabres came out again with the attitude that they showed against the Hurricanes. This attitude is what is needed for the last 10 games for us to catch the Flyers and possibly the Bruins. The Bruins are playing right now against the Caps, tied 1-1.

Derek Roy has become a beast again and so has Daniel Paille after his benching. Paille had a goal in the game and Roy had an assist. The big winners in the night were Pominville and Hecht. Each had 1 goal and 2 assists on the game. This team needs everyone they can to step up with the missing defensemen.

Even though I have waffled a couple of times, I do think that this team can make the playoffs at the expense of the Bruins. The Bruins have been struggling as of late and with the absence of Chara could be faltering down the stretch. We have two games left against the Bruins and could make up the three point difference pretty easily.
