Sabres Continue on Warpath, Staal Murdered on the Score Sheet, Good Times had by All0
So much for putting CoHo between Vanek and Pommers.
Their points last night may have been solely on the powerplay, but seeing both Vanek and Pominville on the goal side of the scoresheet today will relieve many Sabres fans who have been stressed out about that top 26-9-29 line.
Welcome back, guys.
“I didn’t see it,” Pominville said. “I just blanked out.”
Yup. That’s how it feels to wake up.
How about some random Canes hate to go with your coffee today? Eric Staal was on the ice for all three of the Sabres’ goals last night. TKO’d on the score board.
Meanwhile, the (suddenly injury-plagued) Maple Leafs fell to the Pens last night, 3-2 in regulation. They are falling out of the race for 8th, as the Sabres keep finding the ways and the players to keep their surge alive.
So many good things to breathe in today. Like the standings:
The Sabres are now on a 12-4-3 roll, reminiscent of the 16-4-4 streak of last season, after Pegula took over this town. Can the Sabres do it again? That question has become the storyline of many NHL reports. We’ll see what happens. So far, the Blue and Gold have answered that question 12 times.
15 games to go.
Today’s #SeedsOfGreatness nod goes to Pommers. And Vanek.
PS – Hey, Sabres – thanks for getting my note to 26 and 29! Biscuits are tasty, aren’t they? Have fun against the Bruins. They are 4-5-1 in their last ten. You are 7-1-2. You can do this. You will do this.
