Another Sabres Game, Another Blown Opportunity

The Sabres have gone 3-5-1 in their last nine games after going 6-0-2 in their first eight games. Last night was probably the hardest game to swallow after giving up 4 goals in the last ten minutes of the game to lost to the Penguins 5-2. Malkin scored one goal and had three assists while Jordan Staal had two goals on the night.

The Sabres were playing a really good game going into the third period last night. Then the wheels completely fell off the bus. For a team that started so strong and was playing really good defense in those first eight games the team cannot seem to follow anything right now. Considering that November is one of the easier months for the Sabres, they need to gain all of the points they can heading into January, February, and March where the road is going to get much tougher. With a game against the Bruins on Wednesday and the Flyers on Friday the road isnt going to get easier.

This team needs to play two-way hockey like they used to be able to. They played well to start and seemed to have lost their step. Now they need to find it back again.
