The Sabres by the numbers

PITTSBURGH -- Good morning from the Steel City, a place the Sabres are happy to be home from following their 8-3 dismantling Saturday night. Before I head back to the B-lo as well, here are a few numbers from a team that has to be nearing rock bottom:

1 -- The number of goals for Derek Roy in the last 15 games.

2 -- The Sabres haven't had two straight wins in five weeks.

3 -- The number of goals for Drew Stafford in the last 19 games.

5 -- The number of goals for Paul Gaustad in the last 51 games.

8 -- The total scored by the Penguins, the most allowed by Buffalo since an 8-2 loss to Los Angeles on Dec. 6, 2007.

9 -- The Sabres' injury total following another ankle sprain for Tyler Ennis ("It’s not going to be as long as the original one, so I think that’s good news," he said) and a lower-body injury to Colin Stuart.

17 -- The team-leading goal total for Thomas Vanek, who found the net for the fifth time in six games.

32 -- Ryan Miller's save percentage rank in the NHL with his .902.

37 -- Miller's goals-against average rank in the NHL with a 3.12.

169 -- The number of coaching changes in the NHL since Lindy Ruff was hired in 1997.
