Really cannot get a -- home. And I think those dilemmas and is getting into the mind. Buffalo who played well the second after very good first could not handle Philadelphia in the third. Paid the price two points at a critical time. Receivers. -- one believe unable to make it stand up from the spin. The fly news that in the last two. In the days even one bit. You're at the Wells Fargo Center. -- Jenrette -- helmet call. And just a few moments later the sabres knew their fate officially Washington has beaten Florida 42. And the sabres are eliminated from postseason play. Not thirty programmers studios welcoming him rankles deal here with you. The sabres as Rick said with the lead heading to the third buffalo with the lead heading to the third. They're 250. Points to twenty Bible into they had yet to lose in regulation even just points. And the sabres at least still would have been alive. And instead for the first time they lose. In regulation after they had the lead to a normal final they'll close out the season on Saturday. In Boston. 8030550. Coming up here of course stay tuned. This is going to be -- posting on here what the players have to say about this loss here tonight in Philadelphia Barry disappoint. A huge run totally unexpected. To be and fifteenth in mid February and to even be at this spot today where we're having the conversation about being disappointed about the playoffs. It. I guess you could say made at least the final month and a half of the season. Not as painful as I thought it was going to be but that now it is officially over and we can reflect now in tonight's game but a on your thoughts on why we will not -- post season hockey -- buffalo this year it. To me. Is disappointing in the fact that I just I knew this team obviously is not going to win the Stanley Cup this year. Especially with the injuries. -- year to meet the injuries of air often Myers here at the end of the season and likely. If those carried into around one meeting with the New York Rangers I really didn't even like the -- chances that much all. However post season hockey in Western New York is pretty special it's pretty cool you can't help but. Swept up into it it's fun to go to work it's fun to go out watch gains that you do so it's fun to go to the games. The party in the plaza. It says all that stuff for being Iraq being a sabre fan here in Western New York touring. The post season is. I think one of the coolest things that we have going in this area and on to not at least get that around. Even -- -- Don't think that the sabres had much going for them with the possible injuries to their best defenseman heading to a first round matchup. I would have taken it in a second no doubt about it even if it meant to us two weeks later discussing another first round failure. I would sign up -- that every single time as we know in the NHL especially there's always the chance. That upsets can happen so much so that any other sport in terms of playoff play. And I would've loved to have seen what some of these sabres newcomers like -- -- -- with some of these other guys would have done. With the pressure of post season holiday -- reacted to that but. Unfortunately it's all speculation. And the sabres a close up the season in Boston. A season that had extremely extremely. High expectations. And that disappointment there's no way around it. There are definitely some positives and some things down the course of this good stretch at the sabres -- to get themselves back into a playoff race. Marcus -- you know. Definitely comes to mind we saw here in the air along the whole season from -- McNabb. There are some definite things to get excited about Cody hobson's. Trade the fact that. There's going to be an extra number one draft pick coming in and Paul -- -- there are some things to be excited about here for next season the youngsters. The off season what could be. When you saw the money that the sabres spent in the offseason. To get Kristin there -- To get Ville -- betrayed you acquire rob -- year the expectations. Were very high. And I thought. Not only a division title but. Something. Beyond around one. And there were clear -- injuries and that's probably still. You can point of the number one reason why this team is not of the post season injuries but there are definitely. Some ones that are right there that arguably can be just as much of having an impact on why they're not there. And it starts with untimely scoring from many of forward on the way. It comes from. At times. Poor decision making by their defense. At times it comes from not getting consistent goalie goaltending from their well paid goaltender. And it just wasn't there. Are enough consistent times throughout the course of the regular season it was there for the last month. But unfortunately the hockey season starts in October and and here and early April it just doesn't go from mid February on. And the sabres now for tutors in a row. Have pretty much played last year -- season and this year about a third of the season well. And it at them this year blaster they got in. Didn't really go anywhere -- it this year. That bad start ended up costing them a postseason berth the excitement around Western New York may be an upset may be something to build -- for next year instead now. It over the off season. And the talk of what could have been. And now. To think about that we have to -- all the way until next October before meaningful hockey. Comes our way again. -- 43 prank calls -- here in the post game 21 Philly wins it and with the Washington win tonight over Florida the sabres are eliminated. We'll get to highlights Lindy Ruff Paul Hamilton all coming up the norm here on the post game but let's get some fan reaction your 8030550. Is. The number OK let's go to Chris and definitely things off hi Chris glad you're on the -- -- very. Certainly great run enjoy it I'm not gonna lie and I can't see some young talent from Leno and -- and -- -- guys you know it's. Very disappointed that it -- -- You know at the end of the day it's still these stupid -- picture that this team still needs to get bigger. And they still need a center to to make them better. A front end. I guess now the new owner right now it's a chance to see mr. -- go to work and she -- -- it does not. Roster because I still think are some guys that. He could be gone from the team. But you know I'm disappointed but what you say it was a great run -- -- -- credit for that at least itself but -- got. -- thanks it is you know I would say. It's right up front in our memory this great run. But if you're still wanting means at the end of the season. To talk about whether or not I feel good about it the answer absolutely not. Look at the expectations now we can sit here and debate as -- the reasons why it's disappointing. Whether you wanna consider injuries to be. -- Or what have you it clearly had an impact where you wanna put it in your rankings for the reasons why that on the policies and while that's why we have talk shows and that's why it will probably. Debate this to death over the course of the next couple months but at the facts. But it's not the only reason and you can't just solely let them off the hook. And say injuries with the sole reason why we clearly know there -- other reasons why but it was there. Which is why at the end of the year when you say now. What the sabres did in the pre season what they do in the off season and coming in what their expect what were your expectations. And -- in ninth place finish. Be anything but other than. Other than -- extreme disappointment. I think many of you we -- set to start this season. With what the sabres did with air off and -- And trading for a hundred year. If you -- back in early September said this team misses the playoffs. Would any of you have said. Lindy Rauf or Darcy were -- Lasts beyond next week. By what -- said no. However. As the season played out as we've heard from the owner on the record. Are gonna be gonna be really surprised. If either of them. Are back Dexter I'm not. Are even think it's what it's worth talking about and I think we know they're going to be here 8030550. Is the number Karl in Niagara Falls is on the post game next -- Carl. There Bryant the -- time I'm gonna argue till. I care anymore and so second injury excuse. And Ryan Miller play better through most of the year it would have been better at eight point. Tyler at the center earlier they would have been -- solving the -- so only problem -- this organization. Most of ball. They didn't lose because my partner -- for a night and my -- and had a terrible year. They've lost because. Well -- probably don't panic. You know -- and play great lady there the main core. There's and the problem with this team dropped by eight years is still here. And until they changed their main corridor to hurt your core. But they are the problem tonight it will be like man had no interest in that game back on everything here. It we went down stretcher but he the last three or four games look like you that your life until teaching -- for. Out of fear hate and start. Developed -- around this young talent they have got Reno and and it. Don't right now we don't actually than any of these and Christine got back into the race. I don't care what anybody on the right wing important Stafford if you put back over their rent equivalent rate. You look great and right in the post civil. Sort till they they decide that they want to really make major change. -- -- -- team that missed the playoffs we elect by the -- our favorite time of the year and we don't get to watch. Thanks -- Appreciate the call and it was very disappointing on the stretcher no doubt about it. Definitely. A disappointment. Common -- I would say had a at a pretty consistent season. You wanna talk about clutch games here in this final week that's fine but you know I think our discussion now turns more towards just 82 games in terms of analysis. And I thought parliament Mildred I I thought had a pretty good season Roy day it still does some of the things that I hate about it. When he wants the play and play without distraction and all the other things that go on. Feel like he can help but. I don't know did. You know post is Saturday it's Saturday going to be the last eight game that we see him and -- uniformly of course heard all the rumors are on the trade deadline at the sabres are trying to move him and it or not. We'll see what happens with Darcy and if there's any -- with running off season. Rankled you'll hear from grammar studios to one Philadelphia wins beating buffalo and regulation. And with the Washington 42. Win against Florida tonight the sabres are eliminated from the post season for the first time all year buffalo blows a lead heading into the third and and that not even getting points. In the game they'll finish in Boston on Saturday. At four cities Lindy Ruff is ready to meet with the media and I'm guessing they'll be a little bit more of a delay today. Not only for the sabres. Coaches and players to find out the fate of that Washington game which ended. I would say anywhere that seven to ten minute range after the sabres team actually did and it Philly so there was that to wait probably before they opened up the locker room. Then the course team probably. Was addressed by Lindy Ruff maybe you know. Common Miller anybody else at the same -- -- and -- and they'll be a little bit more normally a little bit more of a delay tonight. And what is the norm but as soon as Lindy Ruff meets at the media and our Paul Hamilton will bring you that will get player reaction. And of course they continue to break down here what went wrong not only would tonight's game but with the season as the sabres officially tonight have been eliminated from the post season. 8030551888550. To 550. Is the number let's go to Grand Island next -- -- on the line I failure -- the post in golf it. They tell you right. You know com. And then sabres fan and all of that nature he you know I saw this little Leo I went through the -- receivers. They get sick they use every in. And child so just totally destroying. The -- -- and single handedly you know I this year I watched us. And they need more -- -- that are going to be solid approach. You know everybody wants Siobhan reports -- we're -- you know Rory should probably go. -- You are or aren't doing blows. You know -- When Myers -- or -- out over that stretch beginning in the Los. I don't know I -- bogeys in a row on the road. Paris that so. Thanks though appreciated the twelve game losing streak and if you wanna look at one portion of the season that really. Can be ultimately the dagger I mean. They're gonna end up missing it by anywhere we somewhere around between two and four point cell. Could appoint a one game here one game this year but. I guess if you bottoming warm blanket statement losing twelve on the role on the road at any time this season is going to be killer and they almost still overcame it. That's the amazing thing -- almost York but. Last year an incredible run for half the year from New Year's Day on. Ottoman this year from about mid February on for about a month and a half Purcell. Just a little short. And you know ultimately you could probably argue that maybe they got dessert because they took the season for granite early on. Injuries are clearly there is no doubt about that they weren't able to overcome them that also is a sign of a good team you're able to overcome injuries. The fact that the sabres may may have lacked some debt some depth. In certain areas we found out some good news about some of the -- like with McNabb. And with. Marcus Foleo. Corey -- without the good news there but. It would be nice to see maybe how they would do with a post season series and it's not going to. And that being the case this year as Philadelphia eliminates the sabres tonight by winning two to one. I prank calls you with here and -- will continue taking your calls and we'll do a little more extended posting here with us here tonight more fan reaction here. As we know the sabres will play their last game of the 20112012. Year coming up here on Saturday against the Bruins. Next the lack a wanna markets on the line I'm mark you're on the post game show go to. I don't listen now. -- -- The end point for point that the -- figures that -- -- suffocated with Florida boot he would 22 cracks. Over the weekend. -- -- -- I have no idea. But it -- and like he played her point would you keep -- substitute place Saturday. To help -- just made it nice statement. And prickly would or are we look at the partly. These aren't musical -- -- people hear what from the white -- Ali Randall group that need to look by. I'm alas the point shot to get stepped in front of it went off your old self. But it blocked it I would do with a one point you look at the clock issues or port. Give it to play -- -- in order are fragile he can be courageous act Motley Carolina and Florida. Double openers were hurt. You know just a press box -- don't go up for targeted orbit but he got. Security now on the corner route you're resolved by himself. To you now that it is stupid stupid. Again the first win this year first lot this year after that to repeat all over the third period. -- yeah I figured out. First time -- they blew it thanks appreciate it -- AM you know the the breakaway goal would to love Miller stop and come up big to balance to of course. And Matt read. Scores -- -- -- fourth of the year. About Matt read almost having the same total was manic this year. Organic and put 25 a belief. So Matt -- won one now less than medical there's some time left here in this season's that I can obviously change. Every year can't get beat like that I've liked for gear for a lot of what he's done mr. but he can -- be like that. You just can't. In the season on the line. Miller and Reid had to clear break aways Miller went one for two I don't know if you wanna say that's good or bad it's just know that's what it is -- -- Florida. Even though they lost tonight has clinched a playoff spot and do you remember when the last time the Florida Panthers. Made the playoffs. I'll give -- this. The president of the United States was Bill Clinton. That was awhile ago. -- -- 55 let's take a break when we come back highlights Lindy Ruff locker reaction will of course continue to get your phone calls in between at all. 8030551885525. I'm rankles deal. The post -- post game show sabres eliminated tonight back after this on the sabres radio network. We'll leave it what is going to write not what saved -- Miller and many drags the rebound and hangs on the back. Right now my. Setup a million wrestling match going on now battling and they kind of mad as wet -- Another yankees. Younger try to come over and help my -- good -- just gonna put that lets stick. I'd there's our Seneca Parker deck of the game brought -- by Seneca poker we're dealing UN at Seneca poker welcome back -- ten rankles you all the post game. 803055188. 550 to 550 is the number the same -- season ending on Saturday for the sabres they'll play game 82 against the Bruins and then it'll be the off season. Buffalo not able to overcome an absolutely awful. Stuck starts this season they were in fifteen that one point and had a nice run for the last month and a half but too little too late they fall today two to one affiliate. And then Washington winning over Florida officially eliminates the sabres. We are gonna get more reaction here from you at 8030550. But -- frustrated ago let's hear from him. Let's go to Philly and -- rough with Paul Hamilton and other members of the media. Country's biggest story tonight missing outnumber chances your numerous two on ones and I can't. And we didn't finisher could do. Italy's political chances. Some of winning its shots couple missed some. I think. Going really good -- on fleeing from the play -- Too many good chances by the way so it's. Shame to waste a defensive effort to kind of Africa -- a toll on that last call you guys I think did exactly. Which you're asked them to do the last point four hours him. But put restored him in the -- just to turn over who want it we just didn't finish shelters and you know you look back on those of you might -- -- and god. No I think you just hesitated a second and then. You know when he didn't back up and try to make a move stumbled and -- world Bryant has told us hey we made our combatant it's embarrassing to have a team like we have and not be able to make the playoffs. I agree I agree and I know we're little short on the back in Europe I agree. Ultimately -- Are you. Well you know let's not even doing in. His case two was an emergency immediately. And I. And -- scheme ran back to you. Okay short abrupt Lindy Ruff and you agreeing with Ryan Miller about being embarrassed about -- in the post season Lindy -- press conference brought to -- Paul William -- power of attorney and he realized that during the game as Alex -- -- had to leave for an emergency and a thoughts are with him more obviously find out more on that but he was out tonight. And throw in the fact not you know let that sells or is the sabres defenseman but he still lots of decent -- ice time. Air often Myers guys that on a whole lot a lot of ice time they were out to injury tonight. And that's -- injury report sponsored by UB orthopedic and sports medicine. Go where the pros go where to go back to the room here a moment let's get the highlights in quickly from this game that's three -- nothing in the first we go to the second. And buffalo getting the lead late second period -- against his old team -- buffalo up I want. -- swinging around boys know what you -- -- scoops that it wants guys that did not do that. I'm really -- -- problems that yeah. Again. Late Jose from Stafford every year at 1746 in period to one nothing buffalo. Into the third the sabres with the lead. And the flyers it'll look science and great puck movement and a shop for the point goes in. Younger girls around the time that -- looking out in front backhand political assays. -- -- Getting it back to the point Julio via video incited -- And board -- forth from Aaliyah and Giroux at 60511. Is the score late in the third buffalo. At least it would have been a lot of the point tonight but they can't get it to OT Philly with the lead for good. As Reid goes right by every -- any on Miller. We did not -- -- deep thanks goes behind the net from the flyers won't come up with a mortgage -- car in the an incentive that brought back into. For me walking in the settings. Reed's 44 from -- jacket 1539. So it just for 21 left Reid goes by -- year and we already mentioned that was the goal again in the game winner but -- year missing the check on read. In a negative way the ultimate decider tonight is the play of the game brought to you by debt neurological institute. Had a -- in the sabres unable to score in the final moments to one Philly wins -- and the sabres are eliminated from the post season. And will play eight game 82. On Saturday against the Bruins olive pregame at six the last one of the season and then. Face off at 4 PM on Saturday afternoon right here. On the sabres radio network locker of interviews coming year in a moment let's get more calls 8030550. What went wrong with -- -- our -- we go to west -- next and Gregg is with us hi Greg. I'm trying to simulate a lot that he and it you know I had trouble you know what most heated. And -- -- to capitalize the game. In watching and once you know. -- violent -- here. It's going to -- you know -- -- at thirteen public capital to forty years. Into it and you know maybe management at Betty you know. They territory and a break and may need to do something. Could. Possibly. See the change. All right thanks -- Lot of things that could happen it didn't go the sabres -- I would go to your right to the room Ryan Miller's addressing the media including everio Paul Hamilton. Here's Miller in the sabres -- Philly. It's my feet haven't you. And -- There's ourselves well for this game. And for ourselves and a strong position to make playoffs and chase. And that's not a good feeling. Pretty embarrassing. Thing. Poke checking earlier -- waiting out. This try to come with them and early -- our franchise. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Good for him. Kind of a microcosm of earlier in the year where there are plenty of opportunities got a lot of outnumbered the other way and just really can convert them. Because few times and I think -- is probably. To get his salary wanted. I think it kind of rolled forward. -- -- do is. Catch up part of his results had so. Have better chances of didn't do it real shame of it is I think you guys played the kind of do you wanted to play until or at the very end -- I mean. Limited chances. Played as a unit and I -- did a great job for the most part -- Have we waited him out. And then take chances and surged up by a little bit and they had chased down. -- anything different from. When he. Anything different. I saw that periods general Stanley in. The first goal. I thought as. It's the man front there and they got a good break but -- shake it off move forward and now this comes down to. You know Robin finalist Leadbetter and I wanted to save for the guys those to us at -- -- where. It's magnified and we both had to make a better -- thank him. -- digest right now this justice appointed its. Because it's embarrassing. To miss the playoffs. Tell -- talented players and it's going to be -- going. Early enough. -- -- time games and it comes down to. This thing on and figure -- than any other seemingly. Naysayers -- playoffs and that's. So I do it in the sleet and we have that. This year. And I Syria or it. Have. Either way it sucks but. Ram. Ram Miller in the post game -- -- active. Okay Ryan Miller there. His reaction more still to come from the locker room 8030550. Will be your thoughts in two sabres eliminated tonight after losing to Philly and Washington wins. Against Florida go right back to Philadelphia Paul Hamilton is there. Well -- ends tonight a a valiant run in neo last month and a half but we know the the hole they dug themselves ended up fighting in the end. Yeah and you can't just -- this game -- -- -- for the whole season in the alt click on and -- terrific job that they consult about and you know I can't. Picker to -- played this and I'll Pickett played at bat battling I was mistake at the end they caught them. They asked how many outnumbered situations -- the second goal. That's what 52 long ones at least maybe I'll predict I don't think they're connected on any of so a lot you know the opportunity certainly were there to put it away at the defensively -- -- pretty much exactly what -- -- passed to them you know last 24 hours they limited she answers. Took advantage of opportunities to bottom outnumbered Russia's and -- certainly one mistake at the end of the Internet and they want that was a Bible but certainly they had they had the opportunity out to a horrible insult. Paul Ryan Miller we just heard from him using the phrase it's embarrassing to miss the playoffs with a lot of talented players and -- windy pretty much agreed with the statement. Will. The organization in terms of -- a ghoul and -- black have that same view on enough to motivate them to make. Changes. That will appease people advance. I don't think here and see cute I don't think -- think -- finished I think they still went very they need a center. I think as one of the reasons there -- number one -- number two extra thing that could be in play for them pick up that center. Are going to be major changes no I mean there's definitely not political change -- that -- -- not the PGM change. But the I think there'll be a few changes to the team I think though a lot. Tinker with a little bit I think they've made some changes and you saw the difference and the team with so the with a few changes that they made. You know maybe one more out of that courtroom open -- -- on her thank you might be in business so. Yeah I think. I think here aren't -- will guarantee you there's -- coach or general manager change but you know that -- a couple of weeks to the team and who will be interesting to see what they do with those picks and not public or use them and other tournament. Getting that -- they need -- -- only has got another manner to I want to more questions the at this when the season started with what the expectations were and what they did with the trades in the on the free agent signings. Did -- most people agree that if they actually missed the post season. That Lindy and Darcy were in jeopardy and I know they'll be no discussion of it but. If you if we had this conversation it's at September that they would mess I'm surprised that there wouldn't be more reaction the contrary to say that they. That there -- jobs could be on the line. Now their job is not going to be on the line -- -- -- this current ownership he believes in them. I'm not a torture window convoluted should pick -- -- surgeons and nothing is going to -- insult. People that fight symbol even Darcy were geared and Monday route then you know. Did have a partner she's and it's not awful thing but you look at the record look at the record. You know what -- people want at all the injuries look at the record when he's back. Started that night. Wanted to organize that and the line up including our work here and air off of that but deny it all started where they went on the run they want so when you add up the wins and losses with the team that they were expecting -- out -- it's a pretty darn good record. But I think that that's not the only reason that this happened there were a lot of thought it didn't come through in clutch situations. Argue there was a game here I mean. -- Tyler that's not to -- -- too distraught to talk I mean you commuting to work out. I know what he's thinking and he knows that the there were called on his stick tonight. And he saw you on and he taking at heart he's taking it personally that he couldn't help the team get over. Cody optimism here a neighbor a lot of guys who purchased. You know couldn't. Couldn't bring themselves to talk and although Italy -- and hurried out you wanna talk to bodies in the sought to Lockerbie wasn't. Two -- -- a little -- that. -- the rest of them I mean you that you're you're you're. -- -- you look -- of them especially in -- he goes there were opportunities. There and Bryzgalov stopped immediately put more -- and he's got a great under the seat in two but you know I think he picked I think he took it -- personally. Thanks Paul great work will speak on Saturday in Boston. Apple -- -- Good to see. Good to see that. Ville Leino was the so heartbroken according to -- there. Now he's the one -- and the bank with that huge contract and now -- -- into his buddies in Philadelphia. Sabres play the Bruins Saturday. At 4 o'clock play of the game Reid getting around -- year. And he gets -- couple on the wall so let's hear from some of the defense here we know there's been injuries there. They played a pretty good defensive game one breakdown led the game winning goal here's Robin -- gear in the room with all. Well I can't imagine what you guys are -- doing now that's a tough one to. Yeah you know we came out with a pretty solid game defensively. Those guys has played really hard and in our owns owns fashion the first half the game. And we had we had opportunities. Know the difference was came down to play in the neutral zone that it's you know I thought I could be in them more aggressive South Park that was being flipped out and you know kind of have to when no one on one end -- getting beat. And our cost -- -- hockey you know it was a different hopefuls -- make him a body check it looks like it was a matter of inches. Yeah you're just gonna make we're gonna make the play. I on the part quiz who was being flipped and hornets went our way you wanna be. -- -- be aggressive he did a good job and just crawling air -- away and you know I asked I have to do a better job and I lost that one on one and things up my score the winning goal. Before that looked like a 100% better defensively I mean a few mistakes along the way which is gonna happen on hockey game it. You did it without having back either it thought you know you can sit back and wait for the flyers a match you. Yeah I thought we did a pretty good job for the most part of keeping him to to the outside in and -- and not allowing them. Stuff in front of the net the slot and things like that we had a number of rules that have been scored on line than previous. Couple games in hand when they did have some good chances -- was there to to make big. Big saves and you know we just. Peterson the difference was that 11 play tonight that I need to make content is my responsibility. Then came down tonight has not looking good right now only about a minute or so left and capture a flight to. Yeah season. You know we knew that there we needed to and we need it now. And we had them take care of our end and and we you know we didn't we Hindus and the latter part of that. Tonight thank -- -- up front runner here in the Palestinian Brian back to you. Every -- play will go down on the low light real of this season we know it was a it cost him tonight in the game winning goal from read. And the flyers beating buffalo to -- one more interviews coming up here in our blue and gold locker report tonight brought to by Jack on golden silver. -- premier precious metals dealer. Let's grab a call here before we get to the sports update threatened buffaloes -- this high freighter on the -- had. We weren't. I think there is out of finished the -- trade -- there are. Advantage he's got a package -- terror and two number ones that we get Paul Stastny in here and build for next here. Art Fred thanks. The trade talks will be coming off for a recommitment to -- that tonight but thanks for it. Right standings sabres. With the loss remaining 88 points Washington with the wind it's the ninety's and we know that the capitals of the tiebreaker the buffalo. Could not catch Washington. And now -- only one game left we know catching Florida is also impossible Panthers. I've now clinched a spot -- the buffalo lost -- Florida in Washington still vying for the division. That's still up for grabs. The playoff matchups are almost -- I'll run through those story in the east when we return but there's are updated standings. Brought to light Molson Canadian hockey's newest dynasty -- official imported beer. -- the NHL -- cable -- update and we're back with more post game more interviews. As the sabres eliminated from the playoffs tonight. I'm -- deal this is the sabres radio network. It's not the tonight like he was. Well. Not to pour salt in the wound but. I was just thinking during the break is that still the moment of the season that will stick out most TO. I think for me it is mine and had had about three minutes to think about it during the commercial. This kind of going through their saying all right this season won eleven Tony twelve. What are my got to remember most. Does that -- top that for you. Unfortunately. It's an awful moment. It reminds us -- that things that we don't like about this team. But if I'm gonna think about. This. Team in. Some of the things that we hated about this year some of the reasons they're shortfalls. Was that the moment of the season. Lou teach sticking out Miller nothing happened and Miller hurt maybe didn't recover for quite a long time -- it didn't react -- traded. These quote on quote core guys doing nothing about it. And awful be watching the post season from their television sets. -- you hear the post game thanks for being with us -- the flyers. Beating buffalo tonight with the Washington win over Florida their eliminated from postseason play the first time all season. Sabres had a lead going into the third and failed to at least give it to OT which. Would have been big tonight and the amount of games. At the -- you go back and just try to find out point the Colorado game is the most fresh one in my eyes but. Now we'll talk more about that and a moment of what could have been. For the buffalo team go back to the room and Drew Stafford he and Leino and -- -- got hot down the stretch a big part of that. Push toward a possible playoff spot came up short. -- its -- thoughts here Stafford back in Philadelphia with Paul Hamilton. It is so. You know we had a chance especially. My parents'. -- exits. A little bit more. Disappointing fact that you know we hadn't had our hands and and didn't get it done. -- -- till the end you guys did what you coach has been telling the new for two days now you guys I thought. Defended very well as a group. They didn't get much on their home when they did it was from the outside in is it still wouldn't work. We. You know better chances and odd man rushes. You know my lion. We have some great chances you -- on the Crimean degree -- percent Tyler there and Marcus. You know in a couple of opportunities on on man -- while and it's not much else to say -- bluntly. -- out Alan too I mean I was talking about the one even before that. Worried he made a great day on Tyler. You know so we definitely had our chances in the power play Lleyton and didn't get its and so. So it makes -- -- this point fact that you know and -- -- in control. It. Here. We -- last year too and I mean losing in the first on you know made the playoffs is great but it. The here and I -- can't brings back memories that and I don't have. And I heard him on. Against the -- dimension what the Washington. I'm paying attention. It doesn't -- -- and we have to win this game and we didn't get it on and you know -- and you know not make the playoffs assists. -- -- more now that your staff and those. In our American. We had some chances tonight staffer did and unable to capitalize the sabres offense that played of course a much more conservative game tonight. Looked as though they were heading -- -- trying to hold on. But the sabres -- able to a close it out in the third period they fall to one game with the Washington -- are now -- We had no winner tonight and a quick start contest at buffalo scored exactly five minutes and fifty seconds into the game at lucky Lester what -- brand new car courtesy of the bay is -- family of dealerships. The breakdown of what could have been here in just one moment let's grab one more call Tom and San Antonio is a -- time or the post game show glad. -- -- a district a couple quick point here. Lets you comment there's a bigger picture this I think and that is you know it's probably a blessing in disguise that they missed the playoffs because that would have. Further cause -- to -- -- delusional and you know master deficiencies and I think now -- gonna pick up. A closer look at the entire team in the make up they need more grinding forward these guys need to top in this roster up and on the -- they really can't afford to disperse like. Kirby and this is come on but you know this team has to get tougher and bigger. Number two the clock is ticking on guard their streak here and -- the game an extension. But now all you know he's got an owner that's willing to shell out cash. And we're gonna see and they're two different. Sports but he reminds me of pat Gillick who was called stand pat would make a trade and finding when he started making some moves that you eventually won the title. And what about it and he got the Baltimore after left Toronto weather blue jays there. You know he was trading guys like mad and it is so -- but -- what I worry about what we're here because you know. -- -- trade I don't final signing bill in the money that you -- makes me wonder about his judgment and the last coming out just make about it. You know I read in the Buffalo News all the time in particular there's a few writers Bucky Gleason. Prime among them continuously lecturing people but no injuries don't use injuries as an excuse and of course there's a bigger picture that that -- You when you look at a team like the penguins who worked very have a very deep roster. And they weathered injuries. They are the kind of team that can do that the sabres would use to find defenseman like they lost in a lot in the stretch run here they just you know that's that's -- tough to overcome. Anyway that's all of the sale of interstate common. Thanks -- injuries were definitely there I'm -- and he let them. Off the -- it's a fact. I will not say it's an excuse but it's effect it's part of the facts of the reason of why this team. Is not going to be the post season this year and so many games the sabres could have finished off here and there. That lack of finishing ability to maybe get to instead of one. The losses. That could've at least maybe -- to OT you know points here point. Who -- that ever happened on Saturday and it helped rally it's an unfair. Thing to do because the sabres may not play Saturday with the way that they would have had it's still been alive but. Would have liked to at least to have gone into the last day with a chance. Dan -- been given us the updates -- it long and I don't Danube. Been thinking about the what could have been sort of thing -- All these games this year it may come down a single point eight as the reason maybe -- it's not in this playoffs. -- It. -- It. It. And you think back to the home opener brand you know that the crowd was fired Ott that was hockey -- been it was the debut with a new team buffalo jumps out to 21 lead in the first period. Loses the game to Carolina three to two. A game a few days later against Tampa Bay they scored twice in the game's first two minutes and up losing the game three to two. Their leading Florida to one in the third period and up losing the game three to two elite Phoenix who won in the second period and losing that game for its. Even the big Boston rematch back here in buffalo -- game the day before Thanksgiving you might remember buffalo storms out to a two nothing lead they have a 31 lead in the second period. As the game in overtime Philadelphia your member of the game early December jump out to a three nothing lead in the first period it and they won that game though. These are lost points for New Year's Eve of the daily the senators who won in the second period end up losing it. And then of course he got to go back to Colorado just a few weeks ago error there's a blown point. As well as you know I mean even counting the Panthers lost. On Saint Patrick's Day as a one point they had so many chance to win that game. The Toronto -- on Saturday our way you know the battle leafs team absolutely on the ropes up against that with the fans the media. You can't go in there and beat the Toronto Maple Leafs were talking about. Eighteen to twenty points and I'm not saying they went all those games let's say they -- half of half of them they pick up half of those points rotted in this conversation. And I realize that's bare bones and it's easy to say in retrospect -- At some point early in the season -- -- -- these are games and get away they're blown leads. And like I -- you pick up half of those points the crew -- -- play. That's the last two seasons I mean blaster they got away with -- this year they didn't. They just got off the awful starts and that's the difference not focusing on the fact that every single game mean yes something -- -- right and you know we're talking about two years in a row where they discount off to. Horrific starts. And will happen three years and -- logic might tell you now a lot depends on what they do in the offseason by. Tyler Myers as well as another guy who can't afford. At least me and other bad starts of the season this would be third bad start for him wrote that to be the case this year. Really quick vote Collor -- you to stand on brought up injuries. I tend to agree with his point about injuries I don't like hearing -- as an excuse a year but at some point. You do let's take a look at those because look at the garlic anise and production that he provided when he was healthy and when he retired. You wicked even Myers and air off missing the last few Miller at Ayers and Miller after his concussion. -- -- IE eight. Can't believe wasn't. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That I have about thirty follow up question he was on about a 35 to -- -- place to start the season and mean of disappears. Derek Roy you know I I know that another caller previous segment mentioned we've got a package Roy for a Paul Stastny but. I note that sabres fans wonder Korea does sabres if the rumors and reports are to be believed one they're Korea. If they can't find this interpreter what are you gonna you've got another year left on its contract. I don't know if he's going to be here the entire time -- aggressively try to deal during off season. -- -- -- -- In other. Elimination I guess an elimination game in Philly for the second street and right right often feels good and and they get to and in Boston where we -- two years ago. As -- a wonderful. That the prime colts -- games of the year filling in Canada we were together last year for game seven -- I guess we'll do it again on Saturday victory. Document document I think steam -- there given us the great upped its long. -- Philly and Boston we like ending your seasons there I guess that'll happen again but he wanna say tonight it was officially over at all and Saturday. That's for the sabres play game 82. They eastern matchups. Are pretty much set now the Rangers have clinched the one seed. They'll play. Either. On. Well take that back. Ottawa. Could actually. Drop to. If Washington wins. And Ottawa loses out the Washington Capitals actually have the tiebreaker Ottawa now Washington actually could move up to the three spot. I don't it's gonna be quiet in the eastern can pass it I thought it look at the gaps they looked like they were set we knew the raiders are in one. We know Boston that -- we don't know -- the -- -- gonna play can be Washington -- out of can be Florida. So 37 and eight still up in the air Pittsburgh. Is locked in to the four spot. And now Philadelphia is as well there -- do we do now Pittsburgh Philly I think that's going to be the most anticipated matchup in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in round one Pittsburgh Philly. Somebody's. They're both getting beat up somebody a really good team who could make a long run has gotten out round one and the other. Adding Pittsburgh can win the cup. I don't know if they gates' soul banged up in this series and working hard to get out of the series that maybe they don't have enough tank left in the tank for the rest of the playoffs. And the Southeast Division winner will play New Jersey who's the six seats -- Florida of course control their destiny dust up points by Florida. In their gaming at Carolina or any sort of loss of a point by the capitals. -- means Florida is your chance and of the Florida vs New Jersey in the 36 we do know it's locked in now Pittsburgh Philly in the 45. Rangers will play the eighth place team right now -- Washington and Boston in two awaiting the seventh place team right now. It's Ottawa so that one. Out west. I still games going on tonight in their seventeen to two games left in the some of these games getting underway so. I'm not enough out west right now at the very very close none of the match -- to release that there's.
