Hamister said in a Wednesday interview that the documents are being reviewed by three sets of lawyers and enough of the issues should be resolved that he and Berman will be able to sign an asset purchase agreement by the Jan. 24 deadline.
Some random thoughts which occurred to me in the trance induced by viewing the Sabres-Penguins game on Tuesday night: Lindys boy? i A need for speed i Serial Killer back? i Old, familiar place for Grats i Frigid numbers for Tim i Just win, baby i All the News? i Show me the money
The Sabres will take it, especially because their forwards did not have any luck again.
And if it was not, for nearly all of its 65 minutes, the most boring game since the invention of artificial ice, it was sure to at least medal.
The Sabres overtime loss to the Islanders on New Year\’s Eve left them at 8-22-5-2 and light years removed from the Stanley Cup playoff picture. Since the calendar turned, though, they are 6-1-2 and only a dozen or so points out of the race with 36 games left. C Stu Barnes, Buffalos captain, had difficulty pinpointing the source of the turnaround. Its just come together. Guys are doing their jobs, he said. Plus, if you look back at the way all season has gone, we have been in almost every game.
At the other end, Sabres goalie Martin Biron made 23 saves. He also recorded his second consecutive shutout and one of the more spectacular saves of the season. A minute into the second period, Penguins winger Shean Donovan had Biron dead to rights. Biron had fallen to the ice, with his back to Donovan as Donovan lifted a shot toward an open net. Biron somehow reached up with his glove and snagged the shot out of mid-air.
Buffalo — entering the third period tied 0-0 for the fourth straight game — is 2-0-2 over that stretch and 4-0-2 in its last six. The Sabres also have at least one point in their last six games.
Biron, who blanked Phoenix on Saturday, 1-0, has not allowed a goal in over 141 minutes.
