Sabres without pilot--figuratively and literally

You're Terry Pegula and the Buffalo Sabres.

The team that once came back from a triumphant opening in Europe to an upgraded locker room with high expectations soon goes into a downward spiral.

Your franchise goaltender got run by a hated rival and the entire team is called out for being wussies.

There have been an number of embarrassments, including one in Pittsburgh where Pegula calls out the goaltending in an 8-3 loss.

That particular loss begins a franchise-record, road losing streak, which sends the team plummeting in the standings.

The streak hit 12 games after last night (the previous record was seven games) as the Sabres dropped a 4-2 decision in St. Louis.

The plan was for the team to board their charter jet and head back to Buffalo before travelling to New Jersey for their final game before the All-Star break.

This road trip just got even worst and longer. We don't have a pilot that can fly us home. #ugh
