Pominville takes the Captain's chair

Jason Pominville has taken over the role of the Sabres captain for the month of March. I had expected that Pominville would have been captain last month before Hecht had been given a second month in that role. Jochen Hecht was a good captain, and the team really needs him back. The Sabres have a 8-23 record in the last 31 games Hecht has been injured, but need to be much better than that to make the playoffs.

The scoreboards across the league were favorable to the Sabres last night with the Senators, Bruins, and Canadians all losing. The Bruins got blown out by the Capitals 10-2 with Ovechkin getting a hat-trick and five points in the game.

The Sabres need to win their next game against the Flyers desperatly in order to make the post season. As of late, their odds have not looked too good.
