'“It’s huge,” Sabres defenseman Nathan Paetsch said. “It’s the team we’re trying to catch. They’re three points up on us. If we beat them, we’re down by one. If we lose, we’re down by five. It’s a huge, huge playoff game for us.”'
'By the looks of things, the Sabres will need to win at least 10 of their final 16 games to reach the postseason. Eleven of their final 16 opponents would make the playoffs if the season ended today. Tampa Bay is the only one of the remaining five teams that isn’t within striking distance of the postseason.'
'“We wanted to bounce back after the way we played against Montreal on the PK,” forward Daniel Paille said Monday. “There’s no excuse for that. We have to be ready every night, especially now. It’s good that we were a little bit more aware of going across ice. But [Detroit] still got one on us where Ryan couldn’t do anything about it.”'
