Stars and Black Holes: Sabres @ Avalanche: 1-30-2014



Sometimes the brutality of a good old fashioned ass-whooping is fun to watch.  That’s been one of the annoying things about the Sabres this year, that the goaltending has kept games close enough to either not give up completely, or to ramp up the drinking as they become complete laughers.  Not the case in Colorado where the Avalanche were one goal shy of taking the Broncos to overtime.


  1. None.
  2. None.
  3. Matt D’Agostini – He scored a goal and was even on the night.  Yay?

Unsung Hero:

  • None.

The Robert Wade Niedermayer Memorial Black Holes:

  1. Marcus Foligno – He had a weak stick-check in the neutral zone on the Av’s 5th goal and got caught watching and not backchecking on their 7th.
  2. Mike Weber – I think a lot of Myers’s recent ills stem from being paired with Weber so often.  Hard to be competent when you spend so much time trying to cover your partner’s mistakes.  On Myers, he wasn’t as bad as his -4 would suggest.  The two goals that are sort of his fault were the whiffed shot/bad bounce first goal and putting a bouncing puck right on Landeskog’s stick for the 6th goal.
  3. Jamie McBain – He got paired with Weber some of the night as well, and it’s clear two bads don’t make a good.

Unseen Goat:

  • Ville Leino – His most valuable contribution to the Sabres is going to be getting them to the cap floor next season.
