After Monday’s 2-1 loss to Minnesota, the Buffalo Sabres are now 0-6-1 in seven games. They’ve scored at a league-low rate of just one goal per contest. Their top goalie Ryan Miller and most dangerous forward Thomas Vanek will see their contracts expire next summer. Despite all of this doom and gloom, the Sabres insist they’re not quitting.
Publicly, at least.
“You have to continue to push forward,” Ott said. “There’s no give up.”
“We can’t get down,” Flynn said. “It’s a long season.”
That might be the key phrase: a long season. It could mean that Buffalo has plenty of time to bounce back – one point and all – or it could mean that the Sabres and their fans are in for months of suffering.
