The Sabres returned home from Philly with a split in the series, 1-1. Two one goal games, a cubic ass-load of penalties and one goalie switch already happening with Boucher getting the game 3 start after ‘Bob’ was chased. I like what Lindy said about the physical play, that he’d rather see the team [...]
…and throw in Connolly and Gaustad too. These guys came up huge for Buffalo tonight. The scoring forwards were quiet, but the tough guys and agitators did their work (though with a few too many penalties). However, they were also instrumental in killing those penalties, and when the shot got through, Miller was dynamite. [...]
Well, the waiting is just about over. Who wins? The star goalie or the dopey kid Russian? The Bullies or the Blades? How corny can I get? You don’t want to know.
Let’s do this, Sabres. Fortune favors the bold.
If you recall, at the beginning of the year I gathered up as many of the Eastern Conference playoff predictions I could so we could compare the pundits’ prognostications to what really happened. Now, one day before the playoffs, let’s take a look back and see who was close to right, and who was [...]
There’s a history in this matchup, no question, whether it’s the 75 Stanley Cup finals, the 06 playoffs (can still hear RJ’s call of the Umberger hit to this day), and Philly and Buffalo look to add another chapter this week when they meet in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Aside [...]
The number you need to know is one. One point seperates the Buffalo Sabres from the playoffs. They can get the point themselves, either tonight or tomorrow night, or the Hurricanes or Rangers can hand it to them by losing, even in OT or the shootout.
Of course, the much more satisfying way to [...]
Now that the Sabres are all but assured of making the playoffs, let’s take a look at their most likely combatants. There’s a few possibilities here, as the Sabres could be anywhere from 6th to 8th. 7th is the most likely spot to finish in.
First up is the Washington Capitals. The season series with [...]
A come from behind win against the East-leading Philadelphia Flyers is an event to be celebrated. Some even declared the weekend a success just by getting these 2 points. While that’s true enough from a certain point of view, I’d like to see Buffalo take the playoff spot by the throat and not let [...]
1pm game today at the hated Flyers. Been back in town for a few days, but no time to watch the previous games back on DVR. Glad they got points, not so glad about losing to Carolina. Two today would be HUGE but it’ll be tough. Gotta crash the net on these Philly goalies, [...]
I don’t buy the whole ‘angry team after a loss’ thing that’s being attributed to the Flyers last night, at least as it pertains to them beating the Sabres. Yes, the Flyers came out ‘flying’ so to speak, but it was undisciplined. It seemed like Philly was going fbeor the body at the expense [...]
