Unless you’re a Carolina Hurricanes fan, it doesn’t get much worse than the Buffalo Sabres, a failing NHL club that has managed just 11 goals through 10 games this season.
They’ve been shut out in four of their last six games, ending with a 4-0 shellacking at the hands of the embattled Toronto Maple Leafs earlier this week.
With the Buffalo Bills still playing meaningful football well into October – yes, that’s rare – the Buffalo News has shifted its attention to tearing a strip off the city’s hockey franchise.
Adam Zyglis, a cartoonist with the paper, came up with this “Horror Show” beauty in Thursday’s edition.

Add up the results from the dates listed in the cartoon and it’s easy to see how bad this Sabres team actually is.
Over the six games mentioned, Buffalo lost by a combined 27-5.
Come to think of it, maybe Zyglis should correct his cartoon.
Wouldn’t the Grim Reaper be more apt, seeing as he’d be able to put Sabres fans out of their misery?
Happy Halloween, Upstate New York.
