The Sabres are returning to earth too.... I think. The Eichel line has gone silent; in past years that would mean doom. This year they have better secondary scoring and (so far) better goaltending, so they're still putting up Ws. I think teams aren't surprised to come up against Ralph Krueger's pressure game anymore and are making adjustments. Tonight will be an interesting test- the second half of a home-and-home with San Jose. The last game was a back and forth affair on the Left Coast that never saw a lead greater than one. There will be no surprise in this one; both teams are now familiar with each other.
