The Sabres beat the Blackhawks.  2-1.  In regulation.  With Patrick Lalime in net.

I think we can consider this mission a success.

I was watching a game with a friend, ergo, I did not pay the best attention.  However, early in the game they were showing the shots on goal, and were the Blackhawks really leading 12-2?  That made me a wee bit concerned.  In the end, Thomas Vanek and Clarke MacArthur scored their ninth goals (didn’t TV have like forty at this point last season?) and the Sabres nearly shut out the ‘Hawks.

Chicago is a very good hockey team.  Beating them is huge.  I’m so proud of our slugs.

My thoughts are with Mike Grier.  That’s just so sad.

Did Soupy get booed?  I couldn’t hear.  I sincerely hope so.  Just suck it up, Soupster.  Did you really think we were just going to forget everything that happened?

The Caps fell behind 2-0 to the Hurricanes, took the lead 3-2, let EFFING GLEASON score a shorty, then Michael ended it in overtime.

1.)  Jose Theodore has me very, very worried.  Get.  Back.  Soon.  Varly.

2.)  If you did not see Lars’s pass to set up Michael’s game-winner, go watch the highlights right now.  Holy moly, that was beautiful.  I want to have fat blond slick-handed Swedish babies with him.

Alexander Semin also had an excellent night, but, uh, I really don’t feel that way about him.

I’m sitting on children again tomorrow night, so I don’t know how much hockey I’l get to watch.  I do know, however, that the family has CBC, so once the kids have been tucked into bed, I will be enjoying the Caps on HNiC.  Of course I’ll watch the Sabres, but the Rangers make me ill for no apparent reason even though I love Hank.  We shall see how the night progresses.  Another two points are on the line for them, both within the division and the conference.

I can’t believe it’s not even Christmas and I’m already watching the standings.  Stupid Sabres, look what you’ve done to me.

P.S.  The Blackhawks are now 0-1 with me wearing a ‘Hawks shirt.  Sorry about that, guys.
