Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres may have had their historic win streak snapped at 10 games Thursday night in Tampa, but over the past three weeks, they’ve won much more than games: they've won the hearts of their fans and a belief in one another. The matchup with the Lightning was never going to be an easy game. The Lightning are a very talented, veteran, well-coached team. They feature elite talent with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov up front and one of the best defenders in the game, Victor Hedman. Not to mention depth throughout their lineup. The seesaw drama saw the Lightning have leads of 1-0 and 3-2. The Sabres held leads of 2-1 and 4-3. With the win, the Lightning leapfrogged the Sabres and now sit atop the NHL with 37 points. The Sabres rallied twice to tie the score and even took the lead with surging Tage Thompson’s goal early in the third period. It was his fourth goal of the season and fifth point in the last six games. Ultimately, they couldn’t hold on, losing...

These days, fans in Buffalo and all over the world are going goo-goo over the Sabres. The team that hasn’t seen postseason action in seven years has been overhauled by general manager Jason Botterill and is riding a ten-game, franchise record-tying winning streak and is sitting in first place in the NHL. The pain, disappointment and “suffering” that former-Sabres GM Darcy Regier promised Sabres fans has finally changed to hope, promise and just plain fun. The morgue-like atmosphere inside KeyBank Center has turned wild, with jubilant, raucous cheers from fans. The marginally talented lineup that played as individuals has been overhauled with speed, skill and a team-first, pick-up-your-teammate attitude. Calls for Housley’s job and rants about his decision-making have disappeared like morning mist on a summer day. Ten straight wins can change anyone’s attitude and outlook. And now that they see what...
