That Was A Close One.

Both of my teams went to overtime last night, but only one of them came out alive.  In the grand scheme of things, I think it’s worse to lose to the Maple Leafs in overtime than it is to lose to the Islanders.  But I’m still mad at you, Caps.  You don’t play defense, Tom Poti still sucks, and you greatly angered me last night.

Okay, now that I got that out of my system, on to the Sabres!

They managed to win in overtime.  This is a good thing, as Little Ryan probably would have lost his head if they haven’t.  Dudes, how many times do we have to go over this?  YOU CAN’T GIVE UP GOALS TO REALLY BAD TEAMS IN THE LAST MINUTE OF THE PERIOD.  IT IS GENERALLY FROWNED UPON AND IT WON’T GET YOU ANYWHERE IN LIFE.

Drew got a goal for this birthday, so happy birthday again, little buddy!  He also informed us, via Twitter, that swine has wreaked havoc on their team Halloween party.  That’s a major bummer.  Do you think I could get some quotes for my article?

Timmy also continued to be a badass and scored two goals, including the OT winner.  I especially liked the one in overtime.  You’re a good player, Timothy.  You’re a really, really good player when you’re not hurt.

Timmy K continued to further embed himself in my heart by being awesome and gritty and too cute for words.  He’s a good one, that Timmy.  I like having him around.

Ryan Miller saved the Sabres’ collective backsides last night.  He’s be great to this point in the season and I don’t want him getting tired out.  That would be bad.

I’m fairly confident the Sabres will lose tonight for several reasons:

1.)  It’s the second night of a back-to-back.

2.)  Lala will hopefully be starting.

3.)  It’s the Islanders, and therefore we can’t count on the Sabres to win.

4.)  The Islanders will be riding on the “emotional high” of beating a team that was on a six-game winning streak in overtime.  Argh.

Happy Halloween, kids.  Enjoy the game if you stay in and watch it, enjoy the candy if you go get some.  Make sure you check every piece before you eat it!
