Straight from the horse’s mouth:
The Sabres will be up against a full Lightning squad who show no interest to rest their star players and give Buffalo an easy shot at a victory. It’s how it should be, really – it serves as a chance for the Sabres to give a playoff team in the upper-East standings a beating. That sure would send a powerful message to whichever 1st round opponent the Sabres draw.
(If/when, of course, the Sabres do – finally – clinch a spot.)
In non-related news, Ruff had a nice little quip today when talking about the Nathan Gerbe/Martin St. Louis comparisons:
“He looks up to him.”
Well played, Lindy!
