All right, guys. It’s do or die time.


  • The Sabres come out with a little vinegar. Let’s hope that continues.
  • Memo to Terry Pegula: sign Steve Montador. NOW.
  • WHAT A PLAY by Vanek! Nice goal, Pominville!
  • A good effort by Montador leads to a Buffalo power play and Stafford makes no mistake.
  • Halfway through the first period shots are 12-5 in favor of Buffalo.
  • You know, this team’s problem is not the defense.
  • Grier makes a nice play in the defensive zone and then follows it up with a nifty pick that enables Gaustad to put one by Reimer.
  • Miller makes a nice save on a partial breakaway by Kessel.
  • Good patience shown by Connolly on the power play, and it’s 4-0 Buffalo.
  • A little more than halfway through the game and takeaways are seven for the Sabres and two for the Leafs.
  • Nice job, McCormick!
  • Great play by Leopold to take the puck off Kessel’s stick and thwart another breakaway.
  • And Drewwwww Stafford scores another one! Tonight he is “good Drew Stafford”.
  • The Sabres chase Reimer out of the net after two periods. Yay!
  • Rosehill tries to go to the net and McCormick says, “I think not. Why don’t you take a seat?”
  • Rob Ray cracks me up. That is all.
  • Vanek gets his own rebound for his 19th of the season.

Didn’t like:

  • It hardly seems fair for Phaneuf to go after Gerbe. He’s got, what, 150 pounds on him?
  • The Leafs get a power play. Yawn.
  • Big mistake by Myers leads to a great scoring chance but Miller makes the save.
  • The Sabres aren’t doing well on face-offs. Big surprise, I know.
  • WHAT is it with the shorthanded goals, guys? Seriously!
  • Note to the Sabres: punches to the face are NOT a penalty. If you’re unclear on this, ask Jason Pominville. You’ll know who he is by the black eye.
  • Hecht gets a shorthanded breakaway! And does nothing with it!

And they win a game they should win. Yay! Final score: Sabres 6 Maple Leafs 2

Grier had a good game. He was due one this season.

Hecht had another… game. Perhaps he should be the skate sharpener or puck chiller.
