Not yet the end of the world

The Sabres have had two very tough losses, and have lost five of their last seven games. Still, due to the good start the team had, Buffalo is still tied for first in the Northeastern division. In the eastern conference the team is tied for second overall, only behind the Rangers who are already half way done with their season, already playing 50% more games then the Montreal Canadians. Currently the Sabres are actually on pace for a 111 point year, which would be Buffalo's second best ever. So the end is not here, (at least not yet).

Still Buffalo has to pick up their game and return to their winning ways. With the team healthier then it has ever been, they have no excuses and will sit any player that isn't doing well. Yet no single player stands out as the reason the team has been struggling. I would expect Lalime to get a start sometime this weekend to mix things up in goal, but that is all. Friday against Columbus would appear to be the right time for Lalime to get a turn.

Tomorrow Wikipedia will be featuring long time Avalanche player Joe Sakic the subject of their featured article.
