Sabres' postgame thoughts from Miller, Girgensons, Rolston

By John Vogl

NEW YORK -- The Sabres have been mocked and trashed by outsiders all season. After a lopsided 2-0 loss to the New York Rangers -- only 44 saves from Ryan Miller kept it close -- it seems the team realized it has serious issues.

"It’s just everyone looking in the mirror and understanding how deep of a [expletive] we are in right now," rookie Zemgus Girgensons said. "You have to help the other guys work their way up, and if we keep playing like this, not helping each other, we’re going to die individually. We’re going to stop being hockey players. No one will want players like that."

"When everyone wants this to stop, it’ll stop," Miller said. "We seem to be making more situations for ourselves than even the other team can create. It’s on us to dig out of it and start having the right attitude and right approach. It’s been a lot of games searching, trying to figure it out. Enough’s enough."
