Full disclosure: I’m watching this game starting at almost midnight. I know the final score, but that’s how dedicated I am to you, my readers…

Liked:

  • Nice save by Miller on Stamkos. The Sabres need to stop letting the Lightning march into their zone, though.
  • Wait, wait, wait. It looks like Tim Connolly cares tonight!
  • Hel-looo Steve Yzerman…
  • Oh, Jordan Leopold. How I love you… goes into that offensive zone with authority!
  • Yep, Leopold is having a very good game so far…
  • Wow, Myers just made Lecavalier look small.
  • Great play by Weber! He finds Vanek, and Vanek, as usual, puts it home.
  • Huh. I think Morrisonn just told Weber not to fight. And Weber listened.
  • And the bodies are flying!
  • Jordan Leopold continues his great play. What a tying goal!
  • I love it when the Sabres are full of piss n’ vinegar!
  • Uh-oh, they’ve angered the German!
  • I have a feeling Tyler Myers would win a footrace with Martin St. Louis.
  • WHAT A PASS, Tyler Ennis. Tim Connolly owes you a steak dinner.
  • Um, are the Lightning unfamiliar with Vanek? After all the goals he’s scored against them?
  • Oh, now this is just getting silly. Staffy scores another one…
  • Aaaannndddd yet another one. Go Staffy!

Didn’t like:

  • I like Chris Butler, but get well soon, Steve Montador!
  • Note to opponents: how many times do I have to tell you not to hit Tyler Ennis? It will end badly for you!
  • Well, Stafford gives away the puck and Miller lets in one he probably should’ve had. Alrighty then.
  • Oh, Tyler Myers. You bad boy! Sit in box and feel shame!
  • Heh. Smaby took one in the cup.
  • Whoa, Sekera was beaten badly on that play…
  • Memo to Nathan Gerbe: punching to the head is a penalty. Tonight, at least.
  • Memo to other Sabres players: Nathan Gerbe is only ‘ittle. Don’t hurt him.
  • I hope you’re all right, Ryan Malone. In other news, ice is slippery.
  • This was not Sekera’s finest game. And that’s okay.
  • Stafford was pushed into Roloson.
  • Man, that’s a full penalty box, boys… good thing it didn’t come back to bite you.

Sabres are off to Miami. Maybe they’ll see Michael Westen there. If they do, and they could throw him into a duffel bag for me that would be great! See you Thursday! Final score: 7-4 Sabres! Woo!

Methinks it is not so much reader dedication as that you’re just desperate to watch them win once in a while.

Staffy is almost leading the team in goals now! I’d say that’s a mindblower but I remember how he tore up the league when he was first called up a few years ago. Watch your back, Van!

I think Van’s all for it: less pressure for him. 😉

I like to imagine Michael Westen narrating mundane things in my life: “When brushing your teeth, it’s important to use an up and down motion. However, if you’re in hurry a circular motion is the way to go. It will save you time and still get the bristles between your teeth.”

Awesome! I love it!
