I would love to see the Sabres win Game 2 but I fully expect the Flyers to come out, well, flying.

Liked:

  • Sekera just stripped the puck from Carcillo in a ruthlessly efficient play. Heh.
  • The Sabres strike back with Vanek.
  • Then Paul Gaustad puts Briere on the ground during the ensuing faceoff. Scott Hartnell challenges him to a fight, but I’m not sure you can call what happened next a “fight”. It was more like “Gaustad makes Hartnell look silly.”
  • Where was this Niedermayer all season long?
  • Yay! Vanek scores again. I think he’s got a sense of Brobowski now (someone asked Vanek if he had a “sense of Brobowski” after the first game – Bulldog mentioned that Vanek probably got a sense of him during the four regular season games in which they faced him).
  • Sekera puts Buffalo ahead for the first time in the game. Bobrowski’s night is over. Amanda approves.
  • Hartnell takes another stupid penalty.
  • Man, Vanek really wants a hat trick…
  • McCormick brings the Sabres to within one.

Didn’t like:

  • The building erupts as the Flyers score first.
  • Shortly after the Gaustad fight the Sabres have a brain freeze in their end and Carcillo *blech* scores.
  • Philly’s penalty box is getting mighty crowded. Amanda approves.
  • Oh, Miller. Seriously?
  • Gerbe gets an extra two minutes for humiliating Giroux.
  • The penalties are just getting out of control now. I think the refs are making stuff up.
  • The puck deflects off Briere’s skate and goes in. Boooo.
  • Well, I would’ve made more comments on the second period, but DD decided to be needy. ED NOTE: This needy behavior continues into the third.

I didn’t really expect the Sabres to win this game, but it sure would’ve been nice. On to Game 3.
