“It was tough. Kevin sees other teams that talk about the playoffs and playing hockey in these weird months of May and June. I had to finally break it him that the Sabres are probably never going to the playoffs again” said an emotional Dan from the family living room.
“Kevin naturally got upset but as his parent, it’s my job to prepare him for life and not allow him to get hurt with unrealistic expectations. Of course there’s going to be a stretch where the team wins like 4 out of 5 games and the Girgensons’ and Ennis’ score a few goals. It will be normal to trick yourself into thinking that trend will continue. It won’t. Sit back, breathe and accept the fact that those types of moments will be as good as it gets”.
