It's All Over! Clap, Clap, Clap-Clap-Clap

If not mathematically, in any real sense of occurring, the Buffalo Sabres have basically lost any chance of making the National Hockey League Playoffs this season with a horrble 4-2 loss to Ottawa last night, after the Sabres took a 2-0 first-period lead.
The Sabres managed 13 shots on goal for the entire game, 6 in the first period, and simply looked outclassed, out-talented and outworked last night. It became painful to watch the Sabres' futility, including amassing one shot on goal for the second period.
It will take a miracle for Buffalo to make the NHL playoffs at this point, with 12 games remaining, and no one, from the players and the coaches to the front office, should feel as if their jobs are guaranteed with the team at this point.

I almost never feel this down on the Sabres when they are still mathematically in the race, but they have not given me any reason to be optimistic.

I will still be watching them play, of course.
