Another test… January 14, 2010

All season long people have been saying things like, “This game will be a test…”, “Playing against this defensive scheme will be a test…”, etc and so far the Sabres have passed every test. Generally speaking…

  • They don’t lose to bad teams.
  • They don’t blow leads.
  • They can come back from a deficit and still eke some points out of a game.
  • They can change their style (aka “The System”) when necessary and still win the game.

But now they face their biggest challenge yet: the road trip. *cue scary music*

Personally, I’m not worried about them. I think they’ll get points in at least four out of seven games, and that’s good enough for me. The only bad thing at this point is that other teams in the league are noticing them now – it’s way better in my mind if the Sabres sneak up on people, but when you’ve got arguably the hottest rookie and definitely the best goaltender playing for your team it’s hard to keep things quiet.

Here’s the schedule, in case you’re too lazy to look it up yourself:

Thu Jan 14, 2010 Sabres Thrashers 7:00 PM MSG-B Preview
Sat Jan 16, 2010 Sabres Islanders 7:00 PM MSG-B
Mon Jan 18, 2010 Sabres Coyotes 7:00 PM MSG-B
Tue Jan 19, 2010 Sabres Ducks 10:00 PM NHLN-CA, MSG-B
Thu Jan 21, 2010 Sabres Kings 10:30 PM MSG-B
Sat Jan 23, 2010 Sabres Sharks 10:30 PM MSG-B
Mon Jan 25, 2010 Sabres Canucks 10:00 PM MSG-B
