Behind The Bench: 2010s Sabres defined by the 'tank'

On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the team's current slump, in which they have lost four of their last five games, and the state of the team nearing the midway point of the season. What's behind forward Jeff Skinner's lack of production? The 40-goal scored has just one goal in December. And as the 2010s near their end, a look at a decade marked by failures to make the playoffs, high coaching turnover, and the general failure of the "tank" strategy.
