Buffalo Snaps Record Streak at 18 Games

Recommended Posts

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Buffalo Sabres Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time since February 23, the Sabres are back in the win column.

Score: Sabres 6 | Flyers 1

Shots: PHI 32 | BUF 27

Sabres Goals: Sam Reinhart (13), Curtis Lazar (5), Steven Fogarty (1), Casey Mittelstadt (2), Brandon Montour (3, 4)

Flyers Goals: Ivan Provorov (6)

Observation 1 | The 1 in 1-18.

The Buffalo Sabres have done the damn thing.

The final horn sounded and the Sabres found themselves with more goals than their opponent. In the old days, we would refer to that as a victory.

Hard to believe that this record-tying streak for most consecutive losses in NHL history has come to an end but what a relief.

A win certainly does not change much for Buffalo at this point of the season, but maybe it can lift some spirits and the Sabres can start another streak next game - a winning streak.

Observation 2 | Hey Look Ma, I Made It

While the Buffalo Sabres flexed their newly-found offensive muscles against the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night, forward Steven Fogarty found himself having quite a night.

Coming into Wednesday night, Fogarty had played in 21 NHL games and had only tallied one assist.

Fogarty ended up having a career-best evening, tallying two points against the Flyers in 10:58 time on ice. Among the two points was Fogarty’s first career NHL goal.

Observation 3 | Bryson’s Shining

Jacob Bryson shined bright tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers. Bryson tallied two assists and a +4 in team-leading 22:31 time on ice.

While plus / minus is a much maligned statistic, Bryson’s fancy stats happen to look just as good.

The pairing of Bryson and Ristolainen posted a game-best 71.74% expected goals for. Bryson himself posted a 73.98% expected goals for.

Not all games will be this strong for the rookie defenseman but we continue to see Bryson grow, while the Sabres continue to search for their long-term identity.

They are a different team with Ulmark in net.

This team would still be well below .500 if he hadn't gotten injured but they are noticably better with him in goal.

I think they've been a different team since they got rid of the soccer coach. It's just taking a few games to start to kick in but over the last week you could see it. They started out well against Boston and the first Philadelphia game, both were games that they could have won and last night they really put it all together. Last night was the best game I've seen from this team in probably two years.
