Playoff Race Clusterf**k, Mar. 23
So that was a helluva response by the Sabres last night. They picked up 2 points, even when they didn’t necessarily have to, and appeared to have gotten their sh*t together.
Because of Carolina’s win, the Sabres still only have a 3 point lead on the 8th spot. Because of the New York Rangers’ win, the Sabres are still 3 points back of advancing into the 7th spot. Thanks to Boston, New Jersey’s slim playoff hopes got even slimmer. Toronto managed to improve their chances, however, with a convincing 3-0 shutout over Minnesota.
No games on the schedule today with any sort of impact on the Sabres whatsoever, so enjoy your day off from heart palpitations and loss of breath.
