'What is going on here? Why should there be such a dramatic difference in play between the Buffalo, a 27-point team, and the Wings, who came into the game with just eight more? The Sabres are in a full-fledged slump, especially in the offensive zone. The power play has fallen to 25th in the league, and against Detroit – a team ranked 14th in penalty killing, which is good but not fantastic – Buffalo could barely get set up, much less manage quality scoring chances.'
