It’s just wrong to have RJ back and yet have the game televised on Versus.


  • I was happy to hear Roy showed up at the arena yesterday, but walking with a cane? Oy. I know why – that was some pretty serious surgery that he had, but still… to see a hockey player using a cane…
  • Woo! Paul Gaustad actually earned his keep!
  • Shots are 11-3 Buffalo eights minutes in. Amanda approves.
  • And whodathunkit that the Gaustad line would be the one leading the offensive charge? Yay Cody McCormick!
  • That’s a brave woman, going into the bench for an interview during play.
  • Dude – what a play by Sekera. Coast-to-coast, but the Sabres couldn’t capitalize. Too bad.
  • I think this is Gaustad’s best game so far this year.
  • According to Sabres PR, Cody McCormick has eight shots so far in this game. The Sabres franchise record for shots by one player? Twelve.

Didn’t like:

  • As per the illustrious Mike Harrington, I know that Luke Adam is scratched in favor of Nathan Gerbe. A curious choice, but I wonder if Gerbe’s been told to fish or cut bait…
  • Ok, if they’re calling a penalty on Mike Weber I totally didn’t see it. Looked like a good hip check to me.
  • Booooo. And the Flyers score on the power play. Amanda does not approve.
  • Is Ennis afraid of the interviewer? He won’t look her in the eye.
  • Ah, the mystery behind Adam being scratched has been solved. He has the flu.
  • Halfway through the game and Jochen Hecht is at a 20% win rate for faceoffs.
  • Good traffic and movement on the power play but no results.
  • Oh, Ennis, you silly boy. Gotta watch those diving penalties.
  • That was not a good goal.
  • Apparently it’s okay to maul the opposition, guys. Just so you know.
  • Wha? Where was Ryan Miller on that goal? He looked like a deer caught in headlights.

Final score 5-2. Five unanswered goals. Way to not win three in a row, boys!

The Flyers are on a rampage and will be on a rampage until they hoist the Cup, which seems to be a likely scenario unless Ovechkin convinces the KHL to kidnap them…the way we’re playing, we’re little more than a speed bump to their express train of progressing to that lofty destination…

2. Richard - January 11, 2011

I think the Versus announcer pretty much summed it up. The Flyers came out to win in the third period, the Sabres came out hoping to win.

3. Alex - January 11, 2011

They said on versus that Adam has the flu.

Yeah, I put that further down in the blog. 😉
