One has to admire the Buffalo Sabres' resiliency, no?
A few weeks ago, they were left for dead in the Eastern playoff race. Or, as we would say in French, on vendait pas chere la peau des Sabres.
But, after going 7-3-3 in February and 6-2-2 in their last ten games, Buffalo has brought itself back into the post-season conversation.
With last night's 3-0 win over the Habs, they have even moved into a tie with the Washington Capitals for the final playoff berth.
And, to boot, next Tuesday they face those Capitals in a what should be a crucial match-up. Sounds like something worth watching to me.
With the Habs out of contention, what teams or playoff races are you following?
