BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — On the eleventh episode of The Audcast, News 4 Sports’ Tom Martin and NHL.com’s Joe Yerdon talk playoffs.
It does seem a bit early, but these are important times for Buffalo in the context of its 82 game season.
The Sabres are beginning a stretch of divisional games, having dropped one of them to Florida in a shootout loss on the road. That loss followed another shootout loss in Carolina, just as the Sabres appeared to be putting together a good stretch of hockey. Buffalo’s play has improved in line with its health, but there is catching up to do if they want to secure a playoff spot.
Tom and Joe lean heavily on your Twitter questions in this episode, some of them being:
- What’s wrong with the Sabres in shootouts?
- Why is Rasmus Ristolainen seem to be overlooked?
- Should the NHL shorten its season to reduce back to backs?
- Are morning skates useful?
- What happens upon Tyler Ennis’ return?
