This one was never close.
Predictable given the plight of the Buffalo Sabres, at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings, and the Pittsburgh Penguins who are at the complete opposite of the spectrum.
The Penguins dismantled the Sabres 6-1. They led 2-0 before the game was even four minutes old, and it pretty much went downhill from there for the Sabres. Sidney Crosby had five assists and below is a video of each and every one them from this evening.
He’s now up to 24 points in 13 games. Quite a pace. Meanwhile, the Sabres were left to answer for yet another brutal loss.
“We’re running out of things to say here. Once again, it’s a matter of regrouping and coming back to work,” said Sabres’ forward Drew Stafford, as per John Vogl of the Buffalo News.
