Maybe this longest road trip is just what the Buffalo Sabres needed. It took a wakeup call in Vancouver to get the Sabres playing like they are capable of. Friday night the Sabres routed the Ducks 5-2 in the Pond after trouncing the Kings 5-1 the night before. Could this be the turnaround that Sabres fans and the front office has been waiting?
The Sabres were humiliated 6-1 in Vancouver and they came back in the next game against the Los Angeles Kings, trouncing them 5-1. The Kings got the same treatment the Canucks gave the Sabres. The Sabres came out with intensity and hit everything in a Kings sweater.
