I like playing Tampa Bay. It feels like no matter what they do they just aren’t a good team. I also like Vincent Lecavalier and Ryan Malone. Have you ever seen Malone’s tats? They’re um, plentiful.

He's colorful!

Moving on…

I feel a little better about Myers’ durability after hearing what life is like for players in juniors. He said during the WGR pre-game that they play a lot of games, take a lot of really long bus rides, get in at 3am and still have to unpack their gear before they can go to bed, etc. Maybe the kid will be all right. Let’s hope.

Liked:

  • A quick start! Woo! The fastest three goals in franchise history at the beginning of a game. Their fastest three goals at any point in a game were scored in something like 48 seconds in the Lafontaine/Mogilny era.
  • Several players seem to be “on” tonight – Vanek, Pominville, Roy, Myers, Connolly, Lydman.
  • The ice is tilted in the Sabres favor. I like it.
  • Defensemen are scoring/assisting. I like it even more! Lydman is a revelation tonight.
  • Aaaand the population of Pominville goes up again. Good boy!
  • It really does seem like Jochen is smokin’ mad about not being named to the Olympic team. That’s fine – you show ’em!
  • Ahh, the goalpost. A lovely sound when it’s in your end.

Didn’t like:

  • Miller looks slightly drunk. Not sure what that’s about.
  • Why do goal reviews take so long? Sheesh. At least give the crowd some updates or something – isn’t that what the microphone clipped to the refs belts is for?
  • Hmmm. Letting the opposition into the game isn’t a good idea. I am a much bigger fan of putting your foot to their throat and pressing until the other team stops flailing. You’re welcome for the visual.
  • It’s the third period, and Rick Tocchet appears to be looking for a phone. Perhaps calling OTB to cancel the bet he put on the team?
  • The Sabres power play sucks. The only thing that makes me feel better is that Pittsburgh’s power play is even worse, and they have Crosby and Malkin.
  • I wish Gaustad had hands.
  • Aaaand Kennedy loses another faceoff.
  • Whoa, Lydman got rambunctious at a bad time. Good thing Montador was there.
  • Aaaand Montador takes a bad penalty late in the third. A lashing with a wet noodle for you!
  • Huh. Derek Roy has only taken three faceoffs with five minutes to go in the game. I wonder if it’s because he is struggling or perhaps he’s injured? Goose has taken 20, a couple of other guys have taken eight or nine.

Oh Pommer. The Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital spokesman? I guess it’s better than “Definitely Delacy”.

Leafs on Friday. Let’s make it six in a row, boys!
