Sharpen Up: February 26, 2017

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

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.

First stop, Colorado. 

As the Buffalo Sabres return from their bye week, they have 22 games remaining on their schedule. That's 22 chances to erode the six-point deficit that separates them from both third place in the Atlantic Division and the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference.
