Game Seventy-Seven Open Thread: Canadiens at Sabres

28 Mar

In the early days of the Open Thread Era, we traditionally would dedicate each open thread to a former player who had worn the jersey number that corresponded with the game. The choice at #77 is not a difficult one…Chris “Hands of Stone” Gratton or Pierre “I’m here to bugger your wife” Turgeon. I think Pierre wins this one going away. Any special Turgeon memories you’d like to share?

As to tonight’s game, the last time Les Habitants visited Buffalo, the team and fans were riding high after a dominating win over the Predators in which new addition Steve Bernier acted as a one man wrecking crew. Unfortunately, the Habs took the Sabres to school in a dominating win in which they pounded the team up and down the ice and walked a way with a 6-2 victory.

Now, the Sabres find themselves in tenth place, five points behind the Flyers for the final playoff spot. Tonight is a must win for the Sabres, can they nut up and pull it off or will the Canadiens school the Sabres again?

730PM start on MSG.

    Is Kevin on vacation? Just for info sake.

  2. vtTom March 28, 2008 at 6:11 pm #

    its shit or get off the pot to the end of the season (again)

  3. IN DA BUFF March 28, 2008 at 6:12 pm #

    Where is Kevin?

    GO SABRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Red March 28, 2008 at 6:27 pm #

    Do you REALLY want to know where Kevin is? Are you going to be relieved to find out that he’s been wintering in sunny FLA while we’re all freezing in a late March winter weather pattern and wondering if it’s safe to put the snoblower in the back of the shed and bring the lawnmower to the front? Will it ease your mind to know that he’s been wearing shorts while we can only dream of not having to wear a parka?

    Actually, I have no idea where he is. Just hoping it’s not snowing. 🙂

  5. PA Pete March 28, 2008 at 6:29 pm #

    I heard somewhere that Miller is on tap tonite for what will be a record number of starts for a Sabre goalie.

    Is that true?

  6. val March 28, 2008 at 6:32 pm #

    So here we all are, again. This team is like a bad relationship. He called last night, so we’ll watch tonight….

  7. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 6:33 pm #

    Val… you’re right. It IS like a bad relationship. He keeps beating me but I keep coming back.

  8. PA Pete March 28, 2008 at 6:35 pm #

    Sports Business Journal has concluded that the Sabres are one of the best managed sports franchises in North America.

  9. sjb March 28, 2008 at 6:36 pm #

    Yeah, it is true, Pete. I think it’s 29?

  10. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 6:37 pm #

    Easy, Red; take a breath, sailor.

    I hope Val and I encountered a good omen at dinner. We ate at Amy’s Place on Main Street; as we entered, we saw that the couple sitting at the table next to us were both wearing Sabres’ jerseys.

    The guy had a new home/blue Vanek Jersey on, and the woman had a home/blue classic Sabres’ jersey. I saw the number 22, and I hoped it was Ruff jersey; it was, so I told her that I really liked her classic Ruff jersey. It turns out that they are going to the game

  11. sjb March 28, 2008 at 6:37 pm #

    oh that was in a row…sorry

  12. sjb March 28, 2008 at 6:38 pm #

    I think it’s 71 tonight

  13. PA Pete March 28, 2008 at 6:39 pm #

    @Red

    You don’t have to go too far outta Bflo …
    It’s not snowing here in south central PA and people are playing golf ~~ though it is a bit cold.

  14. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 6:40 pm #

    Also, as you can tell, we are watching the Sabres live while DVRing the Wisconsin-Davidson game.

    Please do not tell us anything about that basketball game, or we will hire Larry Quinn to pick your neighbors.

  15. Chris March 28, 2008 at 6:42 pm #

    A groin injury for Kommisarek? Devastating for the women of Montreal.

  16. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 6:45 pm #

    I just checked your link, PA Pete. So, you’re representing the entire state of Pennsylvania, or at least its government?

  17. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 6:47 pm #

    I’m a little late to the party but it looks like I haven’t missed much

  18. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 6:47 pm #

    I was ready to start swearing at the Sabres’ defense, especially Tallinder,

  19. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 6:47 pm #

    Wow – Miller got lucky there! WAAAAAAY out of position on that one!

  20. Ben March 28, 2008 at 6:48 pm #

    Hey, there’s a Sabres game on!

  21. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 6:49 pm #

    I’m hoping Miller got some confidence back with the shootout win

  22. Red March 28, 2008 at 6:51 pm #

    OK, back from the Farms (Wilson) with some Diet Pepsi Max and a half-gallon of Panda Paws. And that’s an exciting night anymore.

    I would like to be golfing, but the last two courses that I drove past were both covered with either snow or water. AARRRGGGHHH!!!!!

  23. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 6:51 pm #

    Uh-oh… the dreaded power play!

  24. Ben March 28, 2008 at 6:52 pm #

    Golfing, sounds awesome.

    Someone actually stole my clubs the other day. STOLE them? Why would anyone do that?!

  25. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 6:52 pm #

    Not to be a dick but it’s 78 here in VA today

  26. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 6:52 pm #

    And for the record, it was 63 degrees here in MD today 😉

  27. Red March 28, 2008 at 6:53 pm #

    Some one STOLE your clubs? Why the hell would they do that?

    You aren’t a lefty by any chance…

  28. val March 28, 2008 at 6:53 pm #

    Let’s hope the Sabres don’t play hockey like they’re looking forward to playing golf…

  29. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 6:53 pm #

    Ben, there’s a special circle in hell for dicks who steal another man’s clubs!

  30. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 6:54 pm #

    Ben, hopefully they were an old set so you have an excuse to go out and get some new clubs

  31. Red March 28, 2008 at 6:55 pm #

    Jesus, what a mess. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many passes. Shoot once in a while, it’s surprising what will get past a rookie goaile.

  32. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 6:56 pm #

    Us Buffalonians/Western New Yorkers describing our weather is the moral equivalent of Charlie Brown saying “I got a rock.”

  33. Red March 28, 2008 at 6:57 pm #

    Well, the PP looks just like it always does…at least there’s SOME consistency on the Sabres.

  34. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 6:57 pm #

    How come every time I see a PP stat the Sabres were in the top 10 but they never seem to score? Does the rest of the league suck as much as us on the PP?!

  35. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 6:58 pm #

    I would like to see at least one power play shift where they have Bernier and Gaustad crash the net/crease.

    Hey, a guy can dream.

  36. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 6:59 pm #

    KJ, now you know why some of us moved away. That and a job that pays halfway decent. I love Buffalo and would move back in a heartbeat if the job market were worth a shit

  37. Red March 28, 2008 at 6:59 pm #

    As a WNY resident, I take solace in the idea of not having to worry too much about having to stay indoors because it’s too hot outside.

    Damn, another PP. Can we skip these?

  38. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:00 pm #

    The Kaleta! draws another one

  39. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:02 pm #

    Frosty,

    They MAY have been old and I MAY be viewing it as an excuse to buy new ones.

    I don’t know why they stole them. Maybe you can trade clubs for crack?

  40. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 7:03 pm #

    Well, Frosty, Val and I are OK weather wise, me more so; while she hates the cold, she was born in Chicago and moved to Wisconsin before moving here. My real problem with cold weather is heating bills. Shoveling isn’t much fun, either.

    Job wise, it can be tough, but I did turn down a couple of good newspaper jobs out of town (one out of state) for family and other reasons. I wish things were better here, but who doesn’t, regardless were they live?

  41. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:04 pm #

    Crack heads will steal anything. I’m suprised they haven’t found you and tried to sell them back to you

  42. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 7:04 pm #

    @37 – Amen, brother!

  43. Red March 28, 2008 at 7:04 pm #

    Hey Ben, if you didn’t get them in 2008 they ARE old. It would also then be incumbent upon you to buy new and better clubs and enjoy them more than last year. Just to show that lousy thief that he or she cannot deprive you of one of life’s great and painful activities.

    It’s a moral imperative!

  44. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:04 pm #

    Hmm… if the price were right…

  45. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 7:07 pm #

    Your credit card company must love you, Red.

  46. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:09 pm #

    I can deal with a Buffalo winter a lot better than a 100 degree plus humidity summer day. You can put more layers on but there is only so much you can take off without being arrested

  47. Red March 28, 2008 at 7:09 pm #

    They used to, KJ. I’ve learned a little restraint with the credit cards.

    I DO need some new clubs though…broke my 5 iron on a tree root and snapped the shaft on my 3 wood trying a ridiculous draw from under a bush…

  48. Kevin March 28, 2008 at 7:12 pm #

    just so you know, Kevin is in New Orleans, drinking in a bar called Piere Masperos on Chartres Avenue, two blocks from Bourbon street. or so I am told.

  49. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:13 pm #

    Red,

    You’ve inspired me, you’re right, it must be done.

  50. Red March 28, 2008 at 7:13 pm #

    Damn, I am getting more and more impressed by Sekera. I just hope he doesn’t forget that he’s a defenseman.

  51. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:13 pm #

    Red, If you are looking for new clubs check Dicks and see if they still have some Taylor Made r5’s. It’s a foreign model that Taylor Made produced and is selling them here in the US exclusively through Dicks. They aren’t the r7’s but you’ll save a bunch of coin. I picked up a set plus drive and 3 wood for around $600.

  52. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 7:15 pm #

    Huh huh, Red; you said shaft.

    I’m with you, Frosty; I HATE the humid, 85-95-degree days we have. Nothing better than breaking out in a seat from the time you leave your parked car in the morning to the time you get to the office.

    My body wasn’t made to wear next to no clothing in public. Someday I may blog on my visit to a nude beach in Hawaii and what hurt the most, starting within 5 seconds of being in the sun. Boy, am I white.

  53. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:15 pm #

    Sorry Ben I meant to say Ben & Red

  54. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 7:16 pm #

    Holy hell! Is there a dealership left that isn’t owned by West Herr?

  55. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 7:17 pm #

    Who does he take diction lessons from, Spacek?

  56. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:18 pm #

    KJ, Neither was my fat ass. I’m so white I’m transparent

  57. val March 28, 2008 at 7:21 pm #

    Hey, the 1st period highlights are coming! Action packed!!!

  58. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 7:25 pm #

    I never applied lotion so fast in my life, Frosty.

    And damn, way too many season-ticket holders appear to have sold their seats to Canadien fans.

  59. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:26 pm #

    How bout those Purple Eagles hanging in there?!

  60. Red March 28, 2008 at 7:27 pm #

    Damn, Michigan just scored.

  61. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:28 pm #

    Shit, I should have kept my mouth shut

  62. Red March 28, 2008 at 7:29 pm #

    My dumb ass had to go look for myself. I didn’t even know I got ESPNU. Bonus!

  63. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:30 pm #

    Fucking Comcast, no ESPNU

  64. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

    Stafford, baby!

  65. val March 28, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

    Yea! He called again!

  66. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

    Hells yeah!!!

  67. Red March 28, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

    YAHOO!!!!!

    Staffy!

  68. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

    Uh-oh…. going to TO

  69. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 7:35 pm #

    Man, this goal had better not get called back by the refs.

    Geez, that puck hit the Montreal defenseman.

  70. Red March 28, 2008 at 7:35 pm #

    That was funny as hell, Val!

    Figures we don’t even get a quick clean one…gotta review.

    But at least it didn’t take forever.

  71. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:41 pm #

    Can we please capitalize on one of the power plays?!

  72. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:43 pm #

    hey, I get ESPNU too!

    Awesome!

  73. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:43 pm #

    Is it still 1-0 Michigan?

  74. val March 28, 2008 at 7:43 pm #

    Thanks, Red.

    Another action packed PP!

    Oh well, never mind…

  75. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:44 pm #

    Okay, maybe not so awesome.

  76. val March 28, 2008 at 7:45 pm #

    Yeah 1-0 M on last commercial break.

  77. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:45 pm #

    At least they will only have a 7 second PP

  78. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:45 pm #

    Thanks Val

  79. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:47 pm #

    WTF is going on with the referees these days?

  80. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:47 pm #

    Mich put a 2nd goal in.

  81. val March 28, 2008 at 7:48 pm #

    The only problem with switching to ESPNU is we can’t watch the ticker at the bottom, because we don’t want to see the Wisconsin BB score. We’re watching that game on DVR after the Sabres…

  82. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:49 pm #

    Picture-In-Picture baby!

    Tell wolf I don’t mean baby! in a flirty way.

  83. val March 28, 2008 at 7:51 pm #

    See, Wisconsin BB would be a good relationship, but it’s long distance. I don’t get to see him very often.

  84. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:53 pm #

    Wolf since you’re an out of towner too you might want to look into an Sling Box if you still know someone in Bflo to hook up to their cable. The box costs $150 and pays for itself.

  85. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 7:54 pm #

    Price may be he calmest and coolest 2-year-old goalie I’ve seen since Barrasso.

  86. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 7:55 pm #

    Frosty, how’s that work? I hook it up in Buffalo and get Buffalo programming on my laptop?

  87. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:55 pm #

    Wolf,

    Exactamundo.

  88. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 7:56 pm #

    Obviously, I meant “20-year-old goalie.”

  89. Ben March 28, 2008 at 7:57 pm #

    Too late KJ, we all think you’re silly now.

  90. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 7:58 pm #

    You got it Wolf, you pick up all the stations that person gets on their cable. My parents hooked one up for me at their place and I get all the games on MSG and will get the Bills games during football season (as long as their not blacked out). They need to also have high speed internet to connect it to.

  91. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 7:58 pm #

    Thanks, Ben. I was thinking dopey or doofus-like myself.

  92. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 7:59 pm #

    My parents and my brother both have DirectTV. Would it work with that, or doesit have to be cable?

  93. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 8:01 pm #

    Ahhh… there’s the rub… after reading Frosty’s post… my parents don’t have high speed, and neither does my brother, as he’s coming of a recent divorce and still getting settled in a new place.

  94. Ben March 28, 2008 at 8:04 pm #

    Neale is stealing the words from my mouth on Bernier. He’s another Zubrus.

  95. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 8:04 pm #

    HUGE save by Price…. and I really do like Bernier.

  96. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:06 pm #

    Something to keep in mind for the future Wolf

  97. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:07 pm #

    Shit, you knew it was only a matter of time

  98. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 8:07 pm #

    Miller way out of position again and it cost him this time.

  99. val March 28, 2008 at 8:07 pm #

    At least it looked like Miller was trying…

  100. Ben March 28, 2008 at 8:08 pm #

    Miller followed the puck like he should have. Tallinder let Kovalev go on that one.

  101. Matt March 28, 2008 at 8:08 pm #

    Hank, Hank, Hank.. 😦

  102. val March 28, 2008 at 8:08 pm #

    He was in position before the pass?

  103. jerthebear March 28, 2008 at 8:09 pm #

    Dammit…it gets worse. Philly just tied it up at 3

  104. Wolf March 28, 2008 at 8:09 pm #

    Well, I’ve been advised that it might be in my best interest to watch a movie with my lovely wife rather than watch the 3rd period… and since the Sabres aren’t putting out for me on a regular basis…

    Later!

  105. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:11 pm #

    So, your wife isn’t a Sabres fan, huh, Wolf?

    Enjoy the movie.

  106. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:12 pm #

    With the way the season has gone chances are the movie will end better

  107. jerthebear March 28, 2008 at 8:20 pm #

    Frosty..probably not, he’s watching Old Yeller

    AND New Jersey JUST scored 4-3 with about 5 minutes left.

  108. PA Pete March 28, 2008 at 8:21 pm #

    @ jetbear

    There’s still hope.
    Philly hasn’t been the Devils yet this year.

  109. PA Pete March 28, 2008 at 8:22 pm #

    hasn’t *beaten* the Devils this year.

    /fixed

  110. Chris Smith March 28, 2008 at 8:24 pm #

    To whomever asked about Kevin’s location, he is currently holed up in an undisclosed location. All I know is that he has asked me to post the Open Thread two days in a row. My guess is that he is holed up with Mel Kiper Jr.’s NFL Draft Preview getting ready to provide some excellent Bills draft coverage. These are the sacrifices the man makes. He’s a sports blogging machine.

  111. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:26 pm #

    Just like Old Yeller, they need to put us out of our misery instead of waiting another week to send us home crying

  112. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:27 pm #

    Can Kevin and Mel Kiper Jr.’s hair fit in the same room, Chris?

  113. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:27 pm #

    Wow, Frosty. I see how you got your name.

  114. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:29 pm #

    Vanek——where arrrrrrrrrrrrrr—-yooooooooou?

  115. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:30 pm #

    Apparently catching a ride in Car 54, Keller.

  116. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:30 pm #

    Hit—–the—-fucking NET!

  117. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:31 pm #

    I’m starting to like the thought of Weber and Sekera being up with the big club next year. I’d still bring back Pratt or Teppo to have a veteran there and keep Patesch as a 7th

  118. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:31 pm #

    or he’s fighitn’ the Warriors KJ.

  119. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:32 pm #

    Who is this #56? A new rookie? Someone tell him to stay on his fucking feet!

  120. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:33 pm #

    Ha; I went for early TV shows instead of 1980s movie culture references for $500, Keller.

  121. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:33 pm #

    Actually I’m normally a glass is half full person but I’m starting to realize being a Buffalo sports fan usually ends in misery.

    The nickname came from my last name

  122. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:33 pm #

    Yeah—Danny P—we are playing hockey down here in the offensive zone—y amight want to join us.

  123. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:34 pm #

    Son of a bitch; we can’t afford the Flyers getting even a point against the Devils.

  124. jerthebear March 28, 2008 at 8:34 pm #

    Philly tied it up…going to Overtime…DAMMIT!!!!!!!!!

  125. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:34 pm #

    It was impressive KJ—gotta admit that went through my head first too.
    THERE IT IS!

  126. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:35 pm #

    FUCK YEAH!!!

  127. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:35 pm #

    And he HITS THE NET this time—way to go Natty Light.

  128. Red March 28, 2008 at 8:35 pm #

    YEAH BABY!!!!

  129. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:35 pm #

    YES! PAETSCH!

    The Sabres have been working their asses off and it pays off.

    Well, it still fit, Frosty.

  130. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:36 pm #

    Well, I admit age helps at times, Keller.

  131. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:36 pm #

    Crosshairs=Boston

  132. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:36 pm #

    Get Pommer and Hecht out there to score another quick one

  133. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:38 pm #

    I think car 54 was remade as an 80’s movie too. I think it had the degenerate gambler from Let it Ride in it.

  134. Chris Smith March 28, 2008 at 8:38 pm #

    Nathan Paetsch is a desert coyote

  135. TheTick March 28, 2008 at 8:39 pm #

    So…what did I miss??

  136. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:39 pm #

    I accidentally called Natty Light===38 is clearly Natty Ice.

  137. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:40 pm #

    Somone just called that!

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!

    Great play by Pominville getting the puck to Key Lime.

    NJ, Philly going to shootout

  140. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:41 pm #

    Thank you

  141. Chris Smith March 28, 2008 at 8:42 pm #

    Scratch that, Paille is the desert coyote

  142. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:42 pm #

    3.141-A!!!!!!!!!

  143. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:42 pm #

    Oh, cripe, that’s right, Car 54 was remade as a movie; it seemed too awful for me to even watch on cable.

  144. Chris Smith March 28, 2008 at 8:43 pm #

    ENOUGH WITH THE CAR 54 TALK!#!#

  145. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:43 pm #

    As a math geek, I laughed out loud at that goal call, Keller.

  146. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:44 pm #

    1994 car 54 ranked by imdb as one of the 100 worst movies of all time

  147. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:46 pm #

    There was no way any movie could match the comedic genius and majesty of the television program Car 54, Where Are You?

  148. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:47 pm #

    WOuld you rather watch Car 54 or Game 7 against the Canes from 2005-06?

  149. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:48 pm #

    can you type the pi symbol somehow KJ?

  150. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:48 pm #

    Now that is difficult; I saw too much of each for my liking.

  151. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:49 pm #

    Naked Hillary Clinton for 30 minutes or a Chris Neil highlight package?

  152. jerthebear March 28, 2008 at 8:50 pm #

    New Jersey wins the shootout

  153. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:51 pm #

    This game looks like a Florida-New Jersey game from 2002.

  154. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:51 pm #

    Chris Neil hightlight package

  155. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:52 pm #

    Me too Frosty—even if it was 2 hours long.

  156. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:52 pm #

    Like this, Keller?

    π

    On this MacBook, we went up to the US flag on the top right, dragged down to Show Character Palette and went to Greek letters.

  157. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:52 pm #

    Wow, Atl put up a fight tonight

  158. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:53 pm #

    Webah! Wicked tough!

  159. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 8:53 pm #

    Hillary Clinton nude or John McCain nude?

  160. jerthebear March 28, 2008 at 8:54 pm #

    McCain, definitely

  161. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:54 pm #

    Holy Shit KJ—I have been trying for years but I have a PC…solid.

  162. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:55 pm #

    No sight

  163. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:55 pm #

    DIVE!

  164. val March 28, 2008 at 8:55 pm #

    How come I don’t feel comfortable with a 2 goal lead?

  165. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:56 pm #

    val—it’s because everyone from Buffalo is pessimistic or bitter.

  166. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:56 pm #

    shinola!

  167. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 8:57 pm #

    That’s why

  168. Keller March 28, 2008 at 8:58 pm #

    Webah! Wicked tough!!

  169. val March 28, 2008 at 8:59 pm #

    Hey Keller- ✠ ❃ ❉Ω ❝ ❞∞ ∏ ∉∛ £€ ☃♤ ♧☢☣……..

  170. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 9:00 pm #

    If those bastards score with one second left I’m going to lose it

  171. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:00 pm #

    val—you using a MAC too?

  172. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 9:01 pm #

    The pi symbol also appears if you take the same route but go to math symbols.

  173. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:02 pm #

    standing around

  174. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:02 pm #

    cue the Mr. Softee music….

  175. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 9:03 pm #

    Are you shitting me, why are we the only team that can’t close out a W

  176. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 9:03 pm #

    OH, JUMPING FUCK JESUS, NO!

    THis sucks to the utmost depths of suckitude.

    BTW, Val and I are using the same Mac, Keller.

  177. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:03 pm #

    look at the Buffalo tramps in the front row—classic.

  178. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:04 pm #

    Tallinder=soft.

  179. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 9:04 pm #

    The Sabres have to come out with flames coming out of their asses for OT.

  180. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 9:05 pm #

    The Sabres don’t play tomorrow, so they have no reason at all to hold back.

  181. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:06 pm #

    Please get five and dime off the ice for good tonight.

  182. val March 28, 2008 at 9:07 pm #

    Had to open my big mouth- #166

  183. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:08 pm #

    val—you had nothing to do with it. I blame the coach.

  184. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:09 pm #

    Montreal’s 4-4 game is so much better than our predictable boring style.

  185. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 9:09 pm #

    No Val it was me, #112

  186. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:10 pm #

    Soft—Buffalo is soft

  187. TheTick March 28, 2008 at 9:10 pm #

    Could’ve had it, boys.

  188. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:10 pm #

    Roy choked

  189. val March 28, 2008 at 9:11 pm #

    Bad relationship! He’s out all night, just 1 point to show for it! And I’ll be back Sunday to see if he’s nice to me….

  190. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:11 pm #

    Soft—soft—soft—soft—-soft—soft

  191. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:12 pm #

    soft—soft—–soft——soft———–soft

  192. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:13 pm #

    sooooooooooooo soft.

  193. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 9:13 pm #

    At least we got a point, fuck that this is fucking ridiculous. I don’t blame Lindy. If he could still lace ’em up he would knock someones dick into their watch pocket. It’s ultimately up to the players to perform and they aren’t.

  194. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 9:13 pm #

    So, you’re saying that the Sabres need some hockey Viagra or Cialis, Keller?

  195. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:15 pm #

    hmmmmm KJ, this teams needs the female Viagra (no offense Val)

  196. Val March 28, 2008 at 9:17 pm #

    No offense taken. I’m going to mess around with my long- distance relationship team, now. Thank you, DVR….

  197. Frosty March 28, 2008 at 9:19 pm #

    Hopefully the Badgers won’t break your heart

  198. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 9:30 pm #

    Damn, Wisconsin had better make this a halfway good night.

  199. Kevin J. March 28, 2008 at 9:31 pm #

    Gus Johnson and Len Elmore?

  200. Keller March 28, 2008 at 9:34 pm #

    House of Cards = Sabres.

  201. trevor March 28, 2008 at 10:41 pm #

    Lindy’s never knocked anyone’s dick into his watch pocket-whatever that means.
