1) The Sabres are DONE! Make no mistake, there will be no heroic amazing comeback for this team. The reason? The Sabres are not only a team on the brink of getting swept out of the playoffs, they are a psychologically beaten team. They simply are at a loss (literally) of how to play the Sens. In truth we should have seen this coming. The Sabres haven't played a good 60 minute playoff game all spring. What would make some believe that they could suddenly do what they haven't been able to do in their first 14 playoff games? It aint!
2) There are NO easy excuses that the Sabres can use this time around. They are as healthy as a team can be this time of year. They have received great goaltending all playoff long from Miller, yet they will NOT play for the Cup. Why? Special teams! The Sabres PP hasn't been a strength all season, but in the post season it has vanished. You can NOT expect to win in the playoffs with a PP that goes O for 17! That's an A-Rod post season stat, not a Cup winning stat!
3) The only drama left is there any pride in the Sabres to avoid a sweep? We can't see them winning tomorrow. They are a beaten team in every conceivable fashion. We predict tomorrow will be the most lopsided game of the series, with the Sens scoring early and often to the point where it could get ugly. Here's hoping the other series continues to give us more competition!
Again; Why is Lindy Ruff a Coach of the year finalist???
