I’ve never seen Alex score on a penalty shot before, and I rarely see him score on shootout attempts, so that was highly enjoyable. It was actually a pretty nice goal too. But I’m going to have to agree with Joe B. and Locker that Brooks Laich was the best player in that game. He’s been slumping and he definitely seems like he’s insanely hard on himself so it was great to see him get two goals and an assist. The shortie was magnificent.

Mike Green actually made an awesome defensive play taking Scott Hartnell off the puck. Maybe he’s not hopeless after all.

Sasha also had two really great plays in a row. I still don’t like him, but if he starts playing like that consistently I’d consider my open hate of his new deal.

As for the Sabres, I missed the first half of the game and got home just in time to see Staffy tie it up. Lindy probably would have killed him for missing that. Ryan was less than stellar in the shootout but the team needs to learn that they can’t always rely on him. He’ll bail them out most of the time, but they need a contingency plan.

After tomorrow’s game in Phoenix I probably won’t see any of the Sabres games until Saturday. It’s too late to stay up when I have to go to school in the morning, especially right around midterms. I’m hoping the Sabres get a regulation win tomorrow. They played really well against the Coyotes earlier in the year (I was there!) but Phoenix was a different team back then. The Caps, however, are playing Pittsburgh on Thursday. I’m not sure if I’m more excited or nervous for this game. The Penguins have been off their game lately but this is still an important game for Washington.

Buffalo better play well out west or Ima be pissed at them.
