Once again the Sabres fail to perform

Buffalo Sabres
While the game against Atlanta was a disaster because of the lack of a backcheck and incompetent goaltending, the game against the Bruins, added a lack of offense to the problem. The Sabres came out flat in every aspect of the game.

Connolly looked really good in the first period, including the goal he scored along with Pominville, but then was giving no effort on any play by the third.

While Buffalo did generate 33 shots, most were very poor, and they allowed 40 shots against. The Sabres were unwilling to maintain any pressure whatsoever in this game and that hurt them. The game had only three penalties between both teams before the final two minutes of the game, and all of them were killed off minimizing any effect that special teams had in the game.

Stafford was back on the ice for this game, as Paille sat out instead.
