BUFFALO GAMES


 

 


wildlogoMINNESOTA-  The Sabres, losers of 5 straight at home, held a players only meeting after falling into last place in the League!  Veteran Jason Pominville spoke up saying “We have got to take pride & keep playing & fighting for our jobs, because a High Draft pick could come in here & take your job” !  With a new Owner expected next season, “All of us need to play better to keep our jobs”!   That night, the Sabres tamed the “Wild” 3-2 behind Taylor Hall, who scored twice including the Game-Winner!

islanders

NEW YORK I-  A 1-1 game into the 3rd period that saw the Isle score twice for a 3-1 Win!  The Isle’s James Reimer was outstanding, stopping 38 shots(7/8 gr’s) & halting Buffalo’s modest 2 game winning streak on home ice!

blackhawks

CHICAGO-  It was like David vs Goliath(last place vs First Place) as the Sabres took down the Giant 5-3 !  Taylor Hall scored twice to stake Buffalo to a 5-1 lead, before Marty Hanzal scored twice in period three to make it close!

blues

ST LOUIS-  Sabre’s finish their best Home(4-1)Block of the season by beating the Blue’s 4-2!  2015 5th overall Draft Pick David Pastranak capped a 3-Goal 3rd period by the Sabres by getting the Game-Winner!
