Number Nine, Number Nine, Number Nine, Number Nine…

Number nine…the number of games the Sabres have lost in a row…a side note…lately I have been hearing that the Sabres are on a “winless” streak…I will concede that they are on a “winless” streak…my problem with “winless” is that it is an easy way to sugarcoat “losing” streak…I was listening to someone on WGR trying to justify the “winless” versus “losing” thang the other day…that OT or SO losses aren’t real losses because we still garner a point outta the deal and that if ties were still the norm, all these games would be ties…if the games the Sabres have won in which they did so in OT or in a SO…in the old days, these games would have been ties too…when the Sabres started the season out last year 10 and 0, I didn’t find anyone complaining that their wins weren’t really wins…long side note…honestly, I wish the NHL would get rid of the “1” point awarded for OT or a SO loss…2 points for all wins…0 for all losses…

With that said…Buffalo played well against New Jersey tonight…the bottom line though is that the Sabes couldn’t hang on and gave up a goal with a little over a minute left allowing the Devils to tie and eventually win the game…are the Sabres a bad team…no…but they better start getting their collective s**t together.

Go SABRES!!!
