Sabres vs. Canadiens 10/15/10 Postmortem October 15, 2010

The Sabres put on a nice pre-game ceremony to commemorate their 40th anniversary. I always like hearing Ronan Tynan sing, but I couldn’t help but wonder if the Canadiens players were looking at each other and saying, “Why is some Irish dude singing the US national anthem?” On to the show…


  • Early on the Sabres are taking the body. I like seeing that at least for now they don’t look like they’re going to be pushed around tonight. Even our ‘ittle Roysie was throwing some checks!
  • Good hustle by Niedermayer causes the first Canadiens penalty.
  • I get the feeling that Roy is far more of a quarterback on this power play than Connolly is. And that’s just fine with me.
  • Glad Miller came to play tonight.
  • One thing I can say for FiOS – they don’t have HD but they also don’t seem to be having all the video and audio problems that Time Warner is having this year.
  • Kind of funny that after a goal mouth scrum the only Sabre still on his feet is Gerbe. He looks like he’s the little brother who your mom made you take with you when you went to play with your friends.
  • Is it just me or is the fourth line getting a LOT of ice time tonight?
  • With six minutes to go in the second the Sabres are starting to take pucks away from the Habs. Hopefully the Sabres team I know and love is emerging.
  • I am not surprised that Derek Roy scored another goal. I am surprised that Clarke MacArthur scored another goal.

Didn’t like:

  • And Tim Connolly mishandles the puck. Shocking.
  • Dumb penalty to Gaustad.
  • Bad entries on the power play have doomed this first one.
  • Is it just me or does Carey Price look like a total d-bag?
  • Who let the Sabres get hammered last night? They’re falling all over themselves.
  • Wow. That Canadiens goal has totally taken the crowd out of this game. The Sabres need to tie it up to get them back into it.
  • Why are the Sabres blindly batting at pucks? Why, I ask you… why?
  • Vanek’s going to jump off a cliff soon. Poor Van.
  • I understand this whole “d-man moving up on the play” thing, but isn’t a forward supposed to be aware of the fact that he might have to cover for said d-man? Just a thought.
  • At this point, Derek Roy, Ryan Miller, and a handful of others are the only Sabres not fired. The rest of them are doing wind sprints until they puke.
  • Isn’t it a penalty when an opponent cross-checks you to the ice? I really thought it was…
  • I’m pretty sure the USS Hal Gill just called the Captain a bad name.
  • An icing? Really?

Tomorrow night – Chicago. This could be interesting…
