Let's Just Say 04-06 Roy Would Fit In On the Nucks
 


g: Secondary scoring, Miller, Sekera!
b: some sabres, Kassian's headhunting

And the Gap is Two....
 
The Good -

- Three in a row? Within two of the Jets? Are you freakin' kidding me? :laugh:
- Leino. PKing and center seem to be agreeing with him. Two goals? Seriously? Good.
- Gerbe bringing the wheels and pushing the pace.
- Sekera. Kishire put it best -- he's a beaut.
- Ennis-Hodgson-Stafford again the best line period to period. Pace, chances, good d? Yes. The empty netter was a capper on a good night.
- Boyes has almost doubled his goal output since the trade deadline. If it wasn't so terrible, it'd be funny.
- First win in Vancouver in 13 years.

The Bad -

- Didn't like Leo at all on the second Vancouver goal.
- Didn't like Miller's rebound control on the second Vancouver goal.
- Penalty parade.
- No liking Alka-Sulzer out there. Get well Robyn.

The Ugly -

- Dubious officiating. The call on Kaleta and the second "high stick" penalty stunk the most.
- Watching Kassian engaged again. A goal and an assist? Seriously? And him (as predicted) trying to head hunt on his ex-teammates.
- Foligno sitting.
- Roy and Vanek. Pominville wasn't far behind.

Winning by 2 on the road against the best team in the NHL?

I will take it.

Huntershin Karuk 03-03-2012 11:35 PM

Congrats guys. At least Kassian showed up.

Luongo put us out of it far too early.

Dubi Doo 03-03-2012 11:36 PM

This roadtrip could be a turning point.

Booth did too, he was your best player tonight.

Where are all the people clamoring to trade Sekera now?

LGB24 03-03-2012 11:37 PM

G
2 more points, beating the first place team in their building
Converting on our chances
Leino
Hodgson
Ennis
Sekera
I thought we played a great 3rd period with the lead. Matched them in controlling zone time and chances and hung on.

B
Refs in the 2nd
Almost blowing the lead in the 3rd

U
Nothing. Who doesn't believe now?

Stop Winnin 03-03-2012 11:37 PM

I love how Kassian actually shows up now that he gets traded. :shakehead

Didn't like Hodgson's game for the most part our 3rd and 4th line saved our ***** tonight. Props to Leino who came ready to play. Kaleta too.

Roy, Vanek and Pominville... Words can't describe this fail. :facepalm:

Miller played good.

GOOD WIN. :yo:

It already is a turning point.

Taro Tsujimoto 03-03-2012 11:37 PM

One thing's for sure: Monday's game is HUGE, BUFFALO, HUUUUUUUGE!

sabresfan129103 03-03-2012 11:38 PM

thank you to the most overrated goalie in league. LOLongo indeed. :laugh:

Chainshot 03-03-2012 11:39 PM

Who would have thought a Monday night game in Winnipeg would be the most important game of the Sabres season so far?

That turnover cost us the chance to come back.

All in all, though, this doesn't mean much to us but it sure means a lot to you guys. Most of us are just happy that Kassian came to play.

Tim Murray 03-03-2012 11:40 PM

Ville's best game as a Sabre, by far.

Rhett4 03-03-2012 11:40 PM

Leino played his best game as a Sabre...and not because of the two goals. He was all over the ice and defensively fantastic.

Sekera? He was a man on a mission tonight.

Stop Winnin 03-03-2012 11:41 PM

Bad: How badly we play when we get the lead. Seriously guys? Wow. Stop turtling and go out there like a shark in bloody water.

They had a great stretch of chances in the third. The second, however, was a full-on turtle mode.

Sabreality 03-03-2012 11:42 PM

Sekera was an absolute beast

who knew Leino was a 2-way 3C? His D coverage/support was great.

PanicItsVanek26 03-03-2012 11:42 PM

G
Miller was solid again
Ennis (8 points in last 9gp)

B
Has anyone seen Vanek?
How Buffalo shies away from all contact
Watching MAG act like he's tough

U
Watching Vanek-Roy-Pominville

Why not try?
Leino-Roy-Pominville
Ennis-Hodgson-Vanek

slip 03-03-2012 11:43 PM

Still funny seeing Florida with the 4th worst goal differential in the conference sitting in 3rd place.

If he keeps it up, he may have a place carved out on this roster. Of course, I'd still love to sign a guy like Stoll this summer.

New Sabres Captain 03-03-2012 11:43 PM

G:
--Bottom 6: Gerbe-Leino-Kaleta, Ellis-Boyes-Tropp. And not just the production (Leino x2, Boyes, Ehrhoff), but the sustained pressure. You can't beat the Canucks if they're camped in your end, and while the Canucks got their chances, these guys controlled the play and got plenty of zone time.
--Kaleta gets an extra mention, Great game from him.
--Sekera. We should just rename the good section the Sekera. My god, is this guy great or what? Wow.
--EHS in the 3rd period. Nothing great in the first two, but I thought they had some real solid shifts in the 3rd and got rewarded with the empty netter.
--Miller when he needed to be. Yeah, he probably wants one of those first two goals back, but he made enough saves early, and against Vancouver...I'll take his performance. The offense gave him much needed goal support though.

B:
--VRP. Come on guys.
--That 2nd goal defensive coverage. Horrible.

U:
--Sylvester and icing calls.
--Kassian getting a pair of points
--Vanek. Where are you buddy??
--Refs. 'Nuff said.

JOHNBOY 03-03-2012 11:44 PM

I miss BZK:(

Tim Murray 03-03-2012 11:44 PM

Did I mention how good Leino was tonight? I'm really happy for him.
