Sabres Ruff has not lost hope


‘Ruff realizes where this team has been this year, but that doesn’t cloud his vision forward. “We’ve put ourselves in a situation where you’re going to lose some games that you probably deserve to win, but if you go back to Jersey where the four guys went back into the lineup and we went 5-0-1 then we lost a game I thought we could’ve been right there to win and you go on a little bit of a down turn. You come into Philly and play a great first period, then you play a terrible second and third, but I think we’ve been able to bounce back and right the ship again. So if you look at it, with strong goaltending and I think our power play needs to finish.”’
