I could make some lame joke about Halloween bringing the Sabres tricks, but that would be, well, lame.

How ’bout I just repeat the post from yesterday’s game? Do y’all mind? No? Great!

Sigh. Here goes:

Liked:

  • Nothing. Oh wait, Andrej Sekera came back from injury. That’s something.

Didn’t like: (Shall I alphabetize the list, or put it in order of importance?)

  • Effort was not good. We’ve all heard how several of them aren’t feeling well, so maybe the flu can be blamed for the effort over the past two games. However, I’m more inclined to say these games follow the Sabres’ formula – win against good teams, lose against bad teams. (See: seasons, past two)
  • The team let Ryan Miller down.
  • Sims is still alive, even after running over Miller. Do we have to go through the procedure for clearing the crease again? Fine. It involves these simple steps:
  1. Note presence of opposing player.
  2. See opposing player moseying/sneaking/driving into the area around your goaltender. This area is known as “the crease”.
  3. Pick up opposing player.
  4. Toss into 6th row.

See? It’s not hard!

  • Too many passes. Also too many inaccurate passes.
  • Horrible d-zone giveaways. Apparently some of the guys felt bad about missing Halloween and decided to give the Islanders some treats.

Could’ve used a little bit of this:

Yep, I took the easy way out.

And a little less of this:

Sadly, that's pretty accurate.

Rematch is Wednesday. Let’s hope Lindy does a bag skate or two before then.
