I do not care if the Sabres don’t make the playoffs this year.  Toni Lydman scoring the only goal of the shootout is officially my Sabres Highlight of the Year.  I wish you could have seen me when Toni came over the boards.  I had been lying on the couch and literally sat up and threw my hands over my face.  I am not kidding.  Then I cursed the hockey gods.  Then Toni scored and I cracked up.  FYI, Toni has never missed a shootout goal in his career.

After Pommer missed on his attempt I saw him say the F-word.  Jason, that kind of language is NOT ALLOWED.  I am WASHING YOUR MOUTH OUT WITH SOAP.

Miller stopped every single shot in the shootout.  I’m so glad I wore my Miller shirt yesterday.  We were watching the HNiC pre-game show and I found it quite interesting when they showed Ryan and Carey getting ready.  Carey had a really tight wife beater that appeared to be made of under-armor material.  It showed off his tanned, muscular arms quite nicely.  Ryan had one of his baggy Sabres hoodies on.  He is so the emo kid on the team.

If there aren’t any suspensions after that hit on Patty I’ll personally start a riot.  That is a DANGEOUS HIT TO THE HEAD, NHL.  GET ON IT.

I’m pretty sure Buffalo got called 18 times for “playing against Montreal” last night.  That’s the most popular penalty in the NHL right now.  Tampa Bay got called for it a ton of times on Thursday.

Goosie got a Gordie Howe Hat Trick on Friday?  Sweet!

I would just like to let everyone know that the Atlanta Thrashers won 6-3 last night after trailing to Ottawa.  I was on the phone with my mom when they scored the sixth goal on the power play and I dropped the phone and yelped excitedly.  Ilya got his fortieth goal!!!

I still don’t believe that the Sabres will make the playoffs (although if they won both games of a back-to-back thanks to Toni Lydman, anything is possible), but I do feel myself warming to them again.  I’ve always loved them, but now I can like them again.

  1. I completely understand about the Habs. I’m watching the second period (which is a treat, it’s actually on TV where I am!) against the Hawks, and it’s ridiculous what is being called on our boys.

    Good luck against the Red Wings!! I’ll be cheering on the Sabres!
