51 shots is an awful lot to give up to a 13th place team, but I suppose that’s what happens when you are the worst team in the league. This has been an incredibly difficult season to be a Sabres fan, but on the bright side it looks as though the goaltending on this team is decent and will get plenty of practice. Bring on Connor McDavid!!!!
In a battle of two Eastern Conference teams well out of the playoff race, Buffalo Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth gave fans something worth talking about against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Neuvirth saw a constant stream of rubber, forced to make 51 saves, but the Sabres still lost by a final score of 4-2. The Sabres, at the bottom of the Atlantic Division, have now lost four consecutive games. The Hurricanes, 13th in the Eastern Conference and six points out of a playoff spot, have a modest two-game winning streak thanks to Thursday’s result, although they’ve won only three times in their last 10 games.
But the big story on this night was Neuvirth, picked up in a late deal at last week’s trade deadline.
