LeRoy: Post Game Reaction 1.31.12

Five things I liked about tonight’s Sabres game:

1.Paul Gaustad has a three point game. It’s been two years since that has happened.

2.The Sabres drastically outshot their opponents, which has been a rarity.

3.Ryan Miller tied Dominik Hasek with his 234th win as a Sabre, the most in franchise history.

4.Ville Leino and Brad Boyes made a huge difference. Both players have a combined 7 goals on the season. Rough for a combined $8 million plus in salaries.

5.Tyler Ennis was all over the ice in his return, playing well at center and playing physically in addition to his great speed. Lindy needs to keep him and Gerbe together.

Five things that I disliked:

1.The Sabres couldn’t score more than twice on Carey Price, despite the high quantity of shots.

2.The New York Islanders won. Therefore, the Sabres did not gain any ground in the playoff race.

3.The Tampa Bay Lightning won. See #2.

4.Arguably the best player on the roster, Thomas Vanek left the game early and will be out for some time according to Lindy Ruff.

5.The Sabres are tied for 13th after tonight’s NHL schedule. I suppose this could also be a positive, but they have a long way to go and tomorrow will be a tough test against a great New York Rangers team.
