Sabres vs. Flyers Game 6 4/24/11 Postmortem April 24, 2011

Let’s do this. I want to see a handshake.


  • Gaustad gets things started early for the Sabres by bodyslamming Hartnell to the ice behind the Flyers net.
  • Niedermayer starts the scoring with one Leighton probably should’ve had.
  • Miller has made a couple of big saves early in the first period.
  • Cody McCormick draws a penalty and the Sabres make the Flyers pay as Vanek scores on the power play.
  • The Flyers penalty box is getting crowded. Amanda approves.
  • Heh. Vanek comes through with another one. It’s 3-1 Buffalo. There have been three Buffalo goals on seven Buffalo shots. Time for a new goaltender?
  • And what do mine eyes see? Why, it’s Boucher in net!

Didn’t like:

  • A total defensive breakdown leads to Philadelphia’s first goal.
  • Ryan Miller is beaten cleanly on the second goal.
  • Boooo. The Flyers tie it up.

Left for the in-laws with about ten minutes to go in the second period. Wasn’t able to watch it the way I watched the first half of the game, but based on the outcome, I think that’s okay with me. Sabres LOSE. On to Game Seven in a very hostile building. Good luck, boys.

When are they going to bench Butler already. He coughs it up more than a 4-pack-a-day chain smoker! I keep hearing how well he plays, and how people would rather take Montador out instead of Butler, but jesus, how many times is this guy going to have a lapse that results in a critical goal for the Flyers?!?!

He’s a -2, but the goals that have been scored on his watch have been critical ones, and have been direct results of his failures. How (or more importantly why) the hell he’s second in average TOI for the Buffalo Defensemen is beyond me…put Gragnani out there for an extra 3-5 minutes per game and short-shift Butler…pull Sekera back in, regardless of his injury…I DON’T CARE, just don’t let Butler be out there for another critical goal!

Some like it hot, but the Sabres must like it smothered in ghost chile peppers to want to play a Game 7 in the City of Brotherly Love. But, whoever survives will in all likelihood face a Capitals team that has been left wanting more often than not in the playoff dance and certainly aware of both teams’ glaring weaknesses…

Oh, I’m quite sure they don’t WANT to play a Game Seven there, but since they couldn’t get it done they don’t have much of a choice. 😉
