You could circle the same set of zeros on Sam Reinharts stat page.

You've got the wrong guy regarding that graphic.  Didn't post it and was merely pointing out that he's taken as many faceoffs as Hutton has the last 3 games.  Can't win 'em when you don't take 'em.  Btw, Reinhart did win 5 tonight.  Don't know how he did vs the Pens & Jets but nearly positive it was worse than Jack would've been had he been able to take them.  (He's taken all the FO's that Eichel would've taken.  That does not help that line.)

First the Cody Hodgson virtue-signaling and now this!

I have no idea what cody Hodgson virtue signaling means. Care to explain.

That might be the best sabres game I’ve seen in 5 years.  What a great effort.  Very entertained and disappointing.  They earned atleast a point.  Too bad.

Darn good, playoff-level game. Too bad we didn't get it to OT, but alas, even the good ones can be losses. Keep playing that way and we finish strong. Play that way next season and we're in the playoffs. Onward!

Well that was a disappointing result but I don't know about you guys but to me I like this team we have now far more than what we saw earlier in the year. Effort level is much higher, we play harder, go to the front, dig for rebounds, just play harder. We still lack a strong finishing touch and we're still weak in front of our own net but overall I like the progression to where we are now. 

With a bounce, this game could have gone the other way. 

Loved Simmonds hitting people in the first. Might have thrown them off a little, but that line needs more time together to jell - or maybe it won't. He is slower than I remember him being. Definitely in the twilight of his career, but I still think a valuable addition down the stretch, and maybe next year too (or a similar type player(s)). 

In the end, the failure of this season rests mostly on two things imo. 1) Skinner not being close to the Skinner of last year. A 30 goal Skinner might have given us another bunch of wins easily and 2) Hutton's slump (and Ullmark's injury). He was ok tonight, but we really haven't had a lot of goalies stealing the win type things. Give us those 2 things and maybe we're tied with the leafs right now.

Disappointing, but entertaining. They looked like a legit team.

Bottom line... We win 5 on 5. Colorado won 5 on 4.  That was the difference in this well-fought well-played game by our beloved Sabres.

How much ice time did Skinner get in the third? Didn’t look like much and they moved Vesey up into his spot.

Getting a 2C effectively adds three players, because it would help Mojo and Skinner so much. Semi-related whatever chemistry those two may have had in September has completely evaporated. It’s like they don’t pay any attention to each other at all.

I understand why Jeff isn’t on PP1, but I don’t get why Jeff isn’t on the ice when the goalie is pulled. He’s made for that type of chaos.

Skinner took a knee to the head in the second period, so maybe he wasn't feeling so good.

Like what does this even mean? They weren't given chances, they earned them. Learn to win? It's just cliche bs. 

My post wasn't meant to suggest given and not earned.  Calm down psycho.

Yep.  And depending on whether Kahun can be at least a legit tweener between top 6 & top 9 rather than clearly a 3rd liner, when Botterill gets that 2C, it might free up Johansson to be on the 3rd line which might even allow Mittelstadt or Cozens (whichever makes the top 12 next year out of the gate) to also slot comfortably into the 3C role with MoJo and Lazar flanking him.

And the last time MoJo went out for his line's regular shift, he was centering Skinner and Frolik.

Agree with your point, but we absolutely earned our chances.

Yeah I worded that incorrectly.  Definitely believe they were created.

We got to see a pretty good hockey game tonight.

Hell yeah. Had everything but the result.

Hutton played well, which is a huge plus and becoming a bit of a trend.

And Dahlin showed signs that he wanted to take the game over, which is the single most important thing this franchise needs to develop,

To get that #2 Center, they will also lose at least 2 good players....or a very good player and a 1st round draft choice.

The non call of Johansson being tripped at the 5:00 mark of the 3rd period was a turning point.

Refs and sentiment matter.

It was bull schit.

fuhk the NHL and their biased refs.

That's true. Our PK is terrible. Has been all year. Two main reasons, we don't win face offs and we cannot clear or control the front of the net at any time, and even worse a man down. Part of this is a downside to the focus on puck moving D men. We have to get better at this for sure.

This is fine. This has always been fine. Give someone Risto/Miller/Montour + Mitts/pick for that 2C. 

Cant keep wasting prime years of Eichel, and soon to be prime years of Dahlin.
