From The Locker Room: Sabres-Islanders

Check out what Dan Bylsma, Anders Nilsson and Zemgus Girgensons had to say after the Sabres' fourth straight loss, a 5-1 defeat to the Islanders.

Dan Bylsma
"We looked like a tired team the last two games. The break comes at a good time for us."

"I think that's just a huge indicator for our game is our puck management and our play in the netural zone with the puck. When we're playing good and we're on our game, we manage the puck well and keep it going north. Tonight we didn't do that at all."

Anders Nilsson
"We definitely didn't play at the level we can play and need to play. We were flat the whole game. We gave up too many on the rushes, way too many scoring chances."

"We need to regroup here for the break and come back after the break and play the way we can and need to."

"We gave up way too many scoring chances, way too many odd-man rushes, too many turnovers. When those happened I wasn't there to make the saves."

Zemgus Girgensons
"Right from the start we tried to mentally prepare ourselves, just our execution wasn't there."

"If you can make tape-to-tape passes more things are going to happen offensively. You're going to break out easier. I know everyone here knows how to pass. We know we can make the tape-to-tape passes. It's just mentally preparing ourselves for that.'
