Sabres are really good … who knew?


‘The Sabres, cruising towards their first playoff berth since 2001 and creating havoc at the top of the Eastern Conference standings, have scored only 12 more goals than they’ve allowed. That’s the kind of differential more familiar to nonplayoff teams. Ottawa, for instance, has a goal differential of plus-70. The Sabres’ team plus/minus ranks 21st in the league.’
