I will be attending tonight’s game (and possibly some of the Party in the Plaza) so if anyone wants to meet up, let me know.
A lot of noise is being made about the fact that Buffalo has never rallied from being down 2 games to 1 in a playoff series. I am not too concerned, as it only takes one win to make it 2-2, even steven. It’s a best of three from there if you can get it, a big test for a very young team, but has the possibility to be a big character builder for the future. Especially for the D, which is getting big minutes from a lot of really young guys.
We got better contributions in game 3 from the top liners, especially Vanek, and that needs to continue. The team needs to backcheck more effectively to help out Miller, and the only ‘undisciplined’ penalties I’d like to see is Weber and Goose levelling dudes in front of the net. The PK has been amazing, reducing the number of times short-handed could be the difference in the series. I’m still feeling positive, and I’m going to enjoy the ride. Let’s go Buffalo!
