The Sabres played the Bruins tonight.  They needed to rebound after a poor showing against the Flyers.  They needed to show they can win in front of their backup.  They needed to show they can play good teams and not just bad ones.  (Although I don’t know if I’d necessarily call the Bruins a “legitimate contender” so far this season.)  They needed two points taken in convincing fashion.

Too bad no one told them that.

This game was not fun.  The Bruins were last in the league on the power play and Buffalo let them score more than once with the man advantage.  Jhonas didn’t get a win.  They kept showing Pie and it made me very sad.  The Sabres let an “offensively challenged” team score four.  It was a mess all around tonight and I’m starting to worry that this is where it all starts to go downhill.

Toronto beat Detroit 5-1.  I don’t even know what to say to that.  I’m speechless.

The Caps beat the Panthers 7-4.  Smiley face!  The Caps were winning then they were tied then they were losing then they were winning then they were tied then they won.  The Lars-Flash-Mikey line was intense.  They were scoring and assisting and being general badasses.  Supposedly 13 Caps had points tonight.  That’s spectacular, especially considering that Alex is still, alas, wounded.  That’s not spectacular is that Semin didn’t have any.  You suck, Sasha.  I don’t like you.

Michael and Alexander were unable to play tonight, however, we were provided our fix of them thanks to Michael’s Twitter:

Michael has his stupid skinny tie on again.

I always liked that pink shirt of Alex’s.

He’s looking a little chunky.

I miss him.

We’ve got a few days off until the Sabres play again, and I’m really hoping they figure things out and decide who they want to be and all that sappy garbage.  I don’t want them to fall apart.  I like when they’re good.  It’s more exciting.
