No thanks to the Islanders who lost to them, but they need to stop being so good and going on a run as of late. It seems like everytime I pop open MSH Sportsline to go grab a few pictures, I see pictures of goal celebrations by the panthers and read that they won by one goal or something, or in overtime. This is why I hate when it's near the end of the season because I'm watching the standings very closely, and they could change every single day.
Mike Robitaille made a point after the Leafs game that Buffalo used to have to watch the teams below them creeping up, but now since they're in reach of the team's ahead of them, they need to start looking that way. They've got the Canadiens tonight, who I think last played on Tuesday if I'm not mistaken. They won 4-2 against the Penguins. Let's hope that even though they have more rest than the Sabres do, that affects them in an area that it doesn't affect the Sabres in.
Most of you heard about the debacle with Mike Milbury calling Tim Connolly 'a self-centered dink' so I won't link you to it. I will however link you to The Goose's Roost's post about how Mike Milbury may be taking this out on Timmy because of how Milbury's job as a GM went. After reading the post, you'll understand.
