‘Things looked pretty bleak for the Sabres playoff chances, as the Isles and Sens had stuck a fork in them. p>The very Senators who humiliated the Sabres in Ottawa Sunday, came to Buffalo full of confidence that they could easily handle them on foreign ice. However, it was the Sabres who played with passion as they beat the Senators 4-3.’
'Sources close to the situation claim that Satan has wanted out of Buffalo for more than a year.'
'The Sabres used the alternating captaincy as a way to find leaders. They've found them, which is why it would be a surprise to see them change again.'
'The Senators can thank their lucky stars the Sabres likely won't be around in the playoffs.'
'“Whatever happens, happens,'' said Satan, the Sabres' leading scorer during his seven-plus year tenure in Buffalo. “There might be a chance that it could be my last game.'''
'"We knew we had to put in a good effort tonight," said Sabres center Chris Drury, who scored twice. "It was pretty embarrassing up there last week. We're desperate right now and every game, we have to play like it's our last one. That's what it comes down to."'
'Buffalo will have the opportunity to take advantage of scheduling in the next two weeks as both the Islanders and the Montreal Canadians take to the road for a west coast swing.'
'With the win the Sabres (29-30-61) improve to 65 points to move to within eight points of the New York Islanders who sit in eighth and hold the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference.'
