Stars and Black Holes: Sabres @ Sharks: 11-5-13

11/06/13

You know I like the Sharks, specifically I like their front office a lot more than I like the Sabres so I was hoping they’d run roughshod over us last night.  Still, I’ll take playing enough bursts of competent hockey to sneak out with a win, even though they were still outshot 51-36 and 89-56 in shots attempted.

Stars:

  1. Drew Stafford – Sure the goal was kind of ugly and he whiffed on an open net, but nice of him to show.
  2. Tyler Ennis – Pretty much ditto for Ennis, who’s been awful this year.
  3. Zemgus Girgensons – Two assists in limited time and playing defensively sound hockey.

Unsung Hero:

  • Marcus Foligno – Despite no points I thought Foligno looked really good last night and his 5 shots on goal seem to back that up.

The Robert Wade Niedermayer Memorial Black Holes:

  • Christian Ehrhoff – Who has turned in a bad string of games lately.
  • Mark Pysyk – Wasn’t good either, but I blame the vet in that pairing.
  • Steve Ott – Weak play on the tying goal.

Unseen Goat:

  • Ville Leino – Maybe it’s conditioning, but I don’t know how you tally no shots in that game.
