Sabres Blog: Die by the Blade

The Wings are through their last set of three games in four days with no wins and all of one goal to show for it. Tonight they’ll embark on a new set with a trip to Buffalo for an opportunity to show an NBCSN-only audience the power of this fully-armed-and-operational suck station.

Taro Hirose and Gustav Lindstrom are up for a peek and practiced yesterday as though their call-up wasn’t just a reward for playing well in Grand Rapids (you know, like NHL players get rewarded with a midweek trip to Buffalo, NY all the damn time).

The Sabres still suck and are looking like they’re well-positioned to go on a late-season run that sees them fall just short of the playoffs. Either that or they’re positioned to keep losing a bunch and then leapfrog Detroit in the draft lottery because life is unfair.
