These may be the only Sabres you see play for a few weeks, but there is some good news on the NHL front: Mirtle brought back his 90+ Points or Bust!
Okay so that’s not nearly as exciting as it seemed in my head, but it’s a good sign nonetheless. Mirtle says the Sabres need to go 6-16 to make the playoffs, which seems manageable enough. The numbers won’t change for quite some time, but it’s good to get used to checking that page and these numbers; we will be linking to them quite a bit down the stretch.
Also, has anyone else slowly changed from visiting From the Rink daily to the Globe on Hockey blog? Strange, isn’t it?
