The Sabres are on another Western road trip. Now, before you go committing hari-kari, let me say this: use a sharp sword.


  • The Sabres come out with some pep and pressure yet another back-up.
  • Wow – the power play actually scores quick! Woo-hoo!
  • Vanek seems to like playing in the high altitude. He’s got some jump in his step.
  • WHAT a shot by Pominville. I think the population is steadily climbing now…
  • Whoa – I like that Montador isn’t shy about shooting the puck…
  • Question to ponder: How many cross-checking penalties does Thomas Vanek draw each year?

Didn’t like:

  • Sekera had a tough first period. I think he’ll recover though.
  • Sabres in penalty trouble=bad.
  • Why is Ryan Miller flopping around like a catfish in heat? (NO idea if a catfish goes into heat, BTW)
  • Isn’t Grier/Gaustad/Niedermayer supposed to be our top checking line? They’re trapped in the Sabres end.
  • Gotta love phantom penalty calls… “Drew Stafford, two minutes for being on the ice!”
  • I’m not sure I’m a fan of playing seven D consistently, but I suppose it can’t be too much worse than playing Nathan Gerbe…
  • Tyler Ennis owes Luke Adam a BIG steak.
  • UGH. Just UGH.

The Sabres are off to San Jose. If I remember correctly they like playing there. One point’s better than no points, but it’s only a small consolation.
