Dahlin has 2g 4a in the last 6 games. 

Shocking that a young player progresses when not actively made to play away from his strengths

I'm curious to see both replaced by Samuelsson (he's looking better) and Borgen.

Laaksonen is coming along nicely as well. 

It would be nice to see these young stay at home types balance out the offensive D, but they also need a strong vet or 2 to help all of these kids on D.

Dahlin, accidentally I assume, celebrating with Lazar on the tying goal was great.

Was going to ask about this, I saw just enough to make me think he might have been goading a Bruin but never saw a replay. Funny!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dahlin, Bryson, and maybe one day Laaksonen. Imagine having a guy walk the line on every D pairing. Those are some of my favorite plays in hockey

Small sample size, very small and it might be because of the emotion of facing his old team BUT if Bjork can skate like that and create with the puck on his stick, he is going to score some points for this team.

Quite a Birthday present to himself

Ya, that's a false stat. Hit stats are always off as they don't measure the power and physicality of the actual "hit" just the contact. 

yep....the worst and most immeasurable stat in hockey

lol, except Bjork showed himself to be a Sabre already by failing to finish on the game winning opportunity. 🙂

That's a low blow, lol. First game jitters, he gets a pass this game. The assist cancels the failed finish.

Unsure, was laboring when getting to his feet, went to the bench during a commercial break in the first period and Tokarski was in net when we came back.

Said to be favoring his right leg.

Bjork missed two chances in the game to bury a goal. 

Skinner has at least 2 a game that he misses, so Bjork will be fine.

Just finished the game.

I'd like to thank Lazar for tipping in the shot for us.  I'd also like to thank Taylor Hall for giving the Bruins exactly what he gave us. Nothing.

I'd also like to thank Bjork for showing the great hands he has shown throughout his pro career.

It was the best OT the Sabres have played this year.  Also I again liked that the Sabres worked hard and played themselves back into the game.

It’s interesting to watch a team with youth like Cozens, R2, Mitts, Tage, Bjork, Olof, Asplund, Dahlin, Bryson, and Joki plus an AHL goalie and an interim coach play a LOT better than a lineup that had Eichel, McCabe, Staal, Hall, Montour, Lazar, Hutts, and RK as coach.

I have to admit Taylor Hall’s game has gotten much worse since his MVP season. Guy isn’t going to command anywhere near what he got this year.

The saddest moment in the game is when they showed him at the very end of the bench, and nobody was talking to him.

That may have been the most emotionally satisfying shootout loss in years.

The Bruins will try to characterize it as a game where they manned up and pulled out a victory in after taking their foot of the gas.

But that's not what happened at all.

They tried to bully us into tucking tail and running right out of the arena. We took it on the chin, wiped off the blood and came back with everything we had. They didn't give us an, opening we took it.

And by the end we had them on the ropes.

That was the closest thing to playoff-style hockey this franchise has seen in years and the boys looked like they want t\some more.

I know I do.

Well, lucky for you, the Sabres have 5 more games against the Rat and his collection of garbage, including 3 games in 4 days next week.

After what we've seen from him this season, maybe Hall plays himself into being just cheap enough that the B's lock him into a 6+ year deal.  THAT would be sweet.

Hall pre & post knee injury is not the same player.  Wouldn't it be sweet if the B's don't fully figure it out just like AZ & Buffalo didn't figure it out soon enough?

They might need to call up Dalton Smith just in case the Bruins keep taking cheap shots at the Sabres.

Dahlin was talking like he's looking forward to it, that he liked how both teams were pushing the game to a higher level. That's the kind of attitude that this team needs.
