Sabres vs Capitals 11/25/09 Postmortem November 25, 2009

I have a love/hate relationship with Alexander Ovechkin. I will readily admit being heartily entertained by his play when he’s not playing the Sabres. Then I want to beat the little bastard.

The Sabredads all looked very dad-like and proud. I heard them mention Tyler Myers’ dad was on the trip and I’m pretty sure they said both he and Tyler’s mom are tall, but I kinda wanted to see Papa Myers towering over all the other Sabredaddies.

Liked:

  • For the most part, the Sabres played AO exactly like they should. Well, as long as he remained in the game, anyway.
  • Mike Green, despite making one good defensive play in the first period, still cannot play defense. If he wins the Norris I’m going to be bent.
  • Seeing Tim Connolly hack the crap out of that Cap at the end of the 2nd period. Go fragile Timmy, go! Staffy came over to show the guy that he eats brains and the crisis was averted.
  • The amount of shots the Sabres blocked. It wasn’t readily apparent but it was definitely there, you know?
  • Ryan Miller covered up for his team’s mistakes. Again.

Didn’t like:

  • Kennedy and Kaleta getting hacked w/no penalties called.
  • The Sabres missing so many easy shots. This is becoming a disturbing trend.
  • Too. Many. Passes. Too. Many. Passes.
  • Tyler Myers appears to be completely unable to one-time a puck.
  • The Sabres looked like crap on their extended power play. Where is the spunky team we saw in the beginning of the season?

The temptation to say “Man, you guys suck” is getting overwhelming, but I try to keep a positive outlook. We’ll see how long that lasts… Off to Philly. Blech. Freaking Flyers.
