Sabres are tied 2-2 in the Stanley Cup semis, against the Carolina Hurricanes. Last night's was a particularly frustrating game because the Sabres are missing a lot of their core defensemen, and as a result we have guys on defense who are playing, well, like college players. That's not a bad thing, but having one of our strengths yoinked midway through the Stanley Cup playoffs is a big disappointment. (Frankly, at this point, the Sabres would do well to rotate their decent, experienced defensemen and play four forwards instead of the standard 3-2 formation. But then, there's a reason I'm not a hockey coach.)
Still possible for the Sabres to take it in 6, though. We'll need to hammer down, start hitting the Canes' forwards, and get our defensemen comfortable with blocking shots before they get to Ryan Miller.
