I may not have been home when it happened, but I made sure to check the replays. Tyler Myers scored his first NHL goal!! Yay!! Hurray!!! Go Tyler!! There’s no way you’ll be sent back to juniors now!
I only saw the third period, but from what I hear, the first period was great and the second period sucked ass. It irks me that the Sabres gave up that awful goal right after Kaleta’s, but as Mike pointed out, a win is a win is a win. The Sabres beat the Islanders. They were supposed to. They got two points. That’s what matters.
I know it’s way too early in the season to say anything and I know that the Sabres started out strong last season, but they actually do look really good this year Maybe they played a crappy period against a crappy team, but they still won and put up six goals. This is the second game in a row, and the best part about tonight is that the scoring was really spread out. I’m a huge fan of secondary scoring. After what happened to the Caps in the playoffs last year, the two most important things for a team to have are secondary scoring and defense. Tyler Myers is taking care of defense, and at least tonight, we had pretty good secondary scoring.
It’s really impressive that Pominville has played in 256 straight games. Congrats on the 100th career goal, Pommer!
True story: I had a panic attack when Ryan Miller was not getting up.
A buttload of my family is rolling into town late tonight for my grandfather’s 90th birthday celebration, so I don’t know how much of the game tomorrow night I’ll be able to watch. This upsets me as it’s the Thrashers, and more importantly, Ilya, Zachity Zach, and Evander. So, Sabres, have fun with my third-favorite loves, but don’t have too much fun if I’m not watching!
