Philadelphia Flyers Vs Buffalo Sabres Game Day Preview
A Battle of back-to-back matchups between two struggling teams. Philadelphia had lost four out of five going into their matchup with Buffalo on Monday. While Buffalo had lost 17 straight going into Monday. Sabres haven’t won since February 23 Vs New Jersey. On Monday Night Philadelphia beat Buffalo 4-3 in OT to continue Buffalo losing streak to 18 games.
Philly’s problem is defense and it hasn’t changed. Every game they play it seems like their down early and by multiple goals.
On Monday night Flyers came back from down 3-0 Vs Buffalo. Against any other team Philly gets blown out like their recent games Vs Rangers.
Yes, their goalies numbers look bad Burt it is not all on them. Their defense is hanging them out to dry each game.
This all goes to losing Defensemen Matt Niskanen to retirement and not replacing him with a good NHL Defensemen.
Philly Coach Alain Vigneault said about benching players on Mondays win “The reason for Benching Lindblom, Patrick and Farabee was because the team needed this game and I rolled with the best nine forwards to that point in the game.”
No matter what Buffalo does they can’t find a way to win. After taking a 3-0 lead on Monday night, Sabres choked it away losing 4-3 in OT.
Sabres losing 18 straight games is unheard of in our ages of sports.
At the pace they are going Buffalo is on track to be the worst team in NHL history based of points percentage in the salary cap era.
Buffalo has good young players; they just can’t put it together and are looking at the top pick in NHL Draft yet again.
Brandon Montour on Sabres losing streak ” It’s embarrassing. This whole stretch is embarrassing. You’ve just got to find a way there. Thats unacceptable.”
