Sharpen Up: February 27, 2017

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

It was a forgettable weekend for the Buffalo Sabres. They came out of their bye week with a chance to begin their final playoff push on a road trip against the two teams with the NHL's worst records, and they returned home early Monday morning with no points to show for it. 

Unlike their loss in Colorado on Saturday, when three early goals created a hole too steep for the Sabres to climb out of against the last-place Avalanche, it was three late goals that proved to be the difference in their 3-2 loss against the Coyotes in Arizona on Sunday.

Sabres fall in dying seconds to Arizona

by Chris Ryndak @ChrisRyndak / Sabres.com

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Coming off a regulation loss Saturday night to the Colorado Avalanche (the team with the fewest points in the NHL), the Buffalo Sabres knew they needed to have a better showing on Sunday against the Arizona Coyotes (the team with the second-fewest points in the NHL). 

For about 50 minutes, they were able to do just that. But the Coyotes stormed back in the third period, scoring three times - including Radim Vrbata's winner with 18.9 seconds left - to beat Buffalo 3-2 at Gila River Arena. It's the first time Buffalo failed to earn a point when leading after two periods (they're now 15-1-4 in that regard).

Missed opportunities were the theme of the night for the Buffalo Sabres in Colorado on Saturday. On a micro level, there were several missed chances that contributed to the outcome of the game, a 5-3 loss to the last-place Avalanche. 

On a macro level, the loss was a missed opportunity in itself to make up precious ground in the standings on a night in which three teams Buffalo is currently chasing had lost. 

Dan Bylsma put it bluntly after the game.
