Sabres/Flyers Stanley Cup ECQF Game 7 Recap: Thank You, Sabres
If I told you at any point before Feb. 22nd that the Sabres would not only make the playoffs, but take the second-seeded team to a seventh game, you’d have called me crazy. And yet here we are, hours after the Flyers eliminated the Sabres in game seven of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.
I wrote two days ago that “When the Flyers want, they can just pour it on until the Sabres break”. That’s what they did in game seven. The Sabres just couldn’t compete when the Flyers decided they weren’t screwing around anymore.
For once, saying “There’s always next year” isn’t a verbal white flag – it’s an acknowledgement of an actual bright future on the horizon.
And after what looked like a series earmarked for disaster, just let me say thank you, Sabres.
