Buffalo Sabres goaltender Eric Comrie has experienced a rollercoaster of emotions over his last two games. After allowing an astonishing 10 goals in a game on March 9, Comrie then bounced back with a shutout in his next appearance. This impressive turnaround has put Comrie in the NHL record books, joining a very exclusive club of goaltenders who have accomplished this rare feat.
Eric Comrie has become the first NHL goaltender since Toronto’s Don Simmons in January 1964 to allow 10 or more goals in one game and then record a shutout in his following game. This remarkable comeback demonstrates Comrie’s resilience and ability to bounce back from a challenging performance.
The Buffalo Sabres have had an unpredictable season, with games featuring either extremely high or low goal totals. The team currently sits six points out of a wild card spot in the Eastern Conference, having secured 35 wins in 72 games this season. With 258 goals scored and 267 goals allowed, the Sabres’ season has been a wild ride for both the players and the fans.
Eric Comrie’s impressive rebound from a 10-goal game to a shutout is a testament to his determination and skill as an NHL goaltender. His performance serves as a reminder that everyone has tough outings, but a bounce back is always possible.
