Two more pre-season games, two more wins for the Sabres. Buffalo got a 2-1 win over ‘Ottawa’ in the Hockeyville game, wherein the Senators didn’t dress their whole top two lines. Way to show off the game, guys. The Sabres lineup included Myers, Vanek, and Miller, with the goals scored by Rob Niedermayer on an embarrassing misplay of the puck by 8th string Sens goal Robin Lehner, though he actually played a good game after that. Especially considering the lineup in front of him.
Last night saw a 5-3 win for the Sabres over the Canadiens, which you sort of expected when seeing ‘Alex Auld’ pencilled in as Montreal’s starter. Luke Adam is making his case to be the first forward called up, scoring twice, which follows a two assist effort in the Hockeyville game. Vanek, Connolly, and Drew Schiestel had the other Buffalo goals, with Myers adding two assists. A bit of a penalty fest, with fourteen power play chances between the two teams, Buffalo scored twice, Montreal, none on six chances.
Next game is tonight at Philly. Regular season is that much closer.
