Regular season meetings mean almost nothing compared the the playoffs.

You're comparing a banana with a banana split.

Gaborik, Stepan, Richards, Callahan, Dubinsky > Vanek, Pominville, Stafford, Roy, Ennis

Sabres will get shut down. Ehrhoff will be put up against Gaborik/Richards, and he'll get owned. The guy cannot shut down elite players in the NHL, neither can Regehr/Myers. I wouldn't say Girardi/Mcdonaugh can, but they're job is a lot easier.

Anything can happen in the playoffs. Not saying that they would beat the Rangers, but it isn't impossible. Many teams have upset other teams in the past. It all depends on which team has more heart and drive.

Anything can happen before the playoffs as well.
There's a lot of debate in these Buffalo/Coho threads about the Buffalo/Rangers matchup - but there is a little issue before that, called the Capitals - it is sounding a little premature, as though the Sabres have made the playoffs - and likewise, the Rangers have Pittsburgh to deal with before assuming the top seed.

Marcus Foligno is clutch, Hodgson has had 2 tap ins and an empty netter.

A goal is a goal.

With the taps ins, he made smart plays to be in position.

If tap ins were easy, Steve Bernier would be a 50 goal scorer.
