"We're in tough right now." So says Sabre head coach Lindy Ruff. Our beloved ASD hockey team is in the midst of a 5 game losing streak. During the streak they have been outscored 25-9 and currently sit 9th in the Eastern Conference standings. After leading the NHL early on in GAA, Ryan Miller has become more like mesh netting than a stone wall. The Sabres most recent loss was to the Islanders 4-2 at home with Patrick Lalime giving Miller a rest.
The Sabres try to get back on track tonight against division leading Boston whom they are 1-2 against this year. What's going on? Did we give the Sabres the kiss of death? Hopefully they turn it around because ahead on Friday and Saturday they have games against Pittsburgh and Montreal.
