Hockey season ends in March

Forget about games in May or June like we've seen the last two years. There's not going to be any hockey in April in HSBC Arena this year unless the Sabres pull off one huge turnaround.

The last home game is Sunday against Boston -- and that's just March 30.

Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Ottawa was the most inexcusable one in a season full of them. Five goals in the last 7:40. A short-handed goal waking up an Ottawa team clearly dead from two games in two nights.

There were a good number of empty seats tonight. Those folks have given up. They're probably right. Anybody care to disagree?
