The points were there for the grabbing. The Sabres just didn't want to have anything to do with them. That's the sad situation with the Buffalo Sabres. Two games in Florida this weekend netted the Sabres just one point in their desperate attempt to crawl out of the hole they've dug themselves this season and get back into the playoff race. The best the Sabres could do was to get a point out of Tampa Bay as they skated to a 2-all draw with the Lightning. The game was also a very costly one as the Sabres may have lost their captain for around two weeks.
