Devils 3, Sabres 2
I will keep this post short as it is late, we have had a full day, and tomorrow (Sunday) we have a full plate on our schedule.
A week ago we were coming off of three huge wins... renewed visions of President's Trophies, steamrolling into the playoffs, the scoring machine back.
One week later there is despair, and a feeling of dread. The Sabres have lost three straight at home, tonight to the second place New Jersey Devils, who are within one point of overtaking us for the conference lead, a position the Sabres have held all season long.
Furthermore, Ottawa loses tonight, but in OT so they pick up a point, and though letting the division crown slip away seems unimaginable, one has to watch the teams chasing Buffalo in the standings with a bit of trepidation.
Now comes a road trip... Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Florida and Atlanta, all fighting desperately for points, and save for Atlanta, all playing well.
A full day on tap for us awaits... we head up to Toronto with Gary and The King for a 1 PM Raptors tipoff, then afterwards down to the Gallagher center at Niagara University, where we will crash their Selection Sunday party. Should be a hoot!
