Buffalo outplayed again

The Sabres got outplayed once again, losing to the Red Wings 4-2. The Sabres got an early goal from Kaleta, but were otherwise flat throughout most of the game.

Vanek and Roy who had been playing well as of late finished the game a combined minus five with zero points. Miller actually played well in this game, and had little to no chance on the ones that did beat him. Both teams were an acceptable (but unspectacular) one for six with the man advantage.

Kaleta actually had a pretty good game and was plus one with a goal (and three hits) in the loss. The Sabres other goal scorer, Jason Pominville also played well and had eight shots on the night, while the only goal against he was on the ice for came on the penalty kill.

What the Sabres really need is Jochen Hecht to be healthy again. Maybe by Buffalo's next game on Wednesday against Philadelphia.
