Popular Post DarthEbriate Posted January 27 Popular Post Report Share Posted January 27 A little side conversation for a Friday. On 3/1/2022, the Sabres were 16-30-8. Their next game they convincingly beat Toronto 5-1. What was unique about that 3/2/2022 game? Ontario had just repealed COVID attendance restrictions and Toronto's arena was full. Every "big" or "event" game since, the Sabres have shown up. And they've played better and better in regular games as they've gone along. Stay on target. The Sabres have played 76 games since 3/1/2022. 6 games left in the arbitrary season cutoff. (Aside: 2/21/23 vs. Toronto starts the next "new" season as a coincidental bookend.) The Sabres are 42-28-6 for 90 points in those 76 games. They only need 8 points in 6 games to reach 98 points over 82 games -- guaranteed playoff pace. This includes an 8-game losing streak this year and a stretch of 8 losses in 12 games last March/April. Yes, the stretches like that have to get eliminated, but they haven't kept the the Sabres off a playoff pace. The Sabres are good now? The Sabres are good now. 4 2 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
