DBTB Open Thread: Week of 4/11 | Sabres playing for pride

We knew last week was going to be tough for the Buffalo Sabres, and the results kinda matched that expectation as they came up against the buzzsaw trio of the Southern teams in the Canes, Panthers and Bolts.

The Sunday evening loss was particularly disappointing as the Sabres have been a better side than that scoreline showed, and even head coach Don Granato couldn’t mask his disappointment - “We were clearly not ourselves tonight. You can look at the chances we created. We had some extreme golden opportunities to score, but just couldn’t convert.”

With just another handful of games left in the Sabres season, Buffalo play the hated Leafs tomorrow, then host the Blues before a home-and-home against the team that made Rasmus Ristolainen their lynchpin for the near future.
