Postgame audio: Another lead blown, another shootout loss

By Mike Harrington

The Sabres fell to 4-4 in shootouts this year with Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals but it never should have got to that point. They had a 3-1 lead in the third period and were on a power play when Troy Brouwer scored a short-handed goal and then the Capitals tied it with 39 seconds left on Mike Green's goal.

Somehow Buffalo gained a point on the playoff "race" and is still just three points out with 13 games to play. It feels like it should be 13 points. Or 23. Or 33.  But imagine if the Sabres had simply held their third-period leads -- or won the shootout -- in either of the last two games and were only one back. Bizarre.

Anyway, here's a quick tour of the locker room and be sure to read John Vogl's report on his exclusive postgame chat with Ryan Miller
