Matt Ellis, Patrick Kaleta (IR; neck), Ville Leino (IR; strained right hip), Adam Pardy, Robyn Regehr (IR; high
ankle sprain) and Andrej Sekera (bruised foot) were scratched in Thursday's 5-4 SOW over Montreal. Kaleta and

Buffalo recalled defenseman Adam Pardy from AHL/Rochester on Monday, only to loan him back yesterday.

According to the Stats

Buffalo were 2-2-0 in four games versus NYI last season, with Ryan Miller appearing twice and stopping 65 of 69

two goals and two assists, and Jason Pominville, with four assists. Currently, they have allowed four or more
goals in six straight games and are tied with Washington for the most goals allowed (41) on the season.

7-4 Isles

Tavares, Moulson, Boulton, Boyes, Okposo, Finley, Streit

Vanek, Poms, Hodgson, Grigorenko

We are 0-56-2 in our last 58 against the Isles, and Tavares tends to exhibit über talent versus us... This game has "absolute disaster" written all the **** over it

Top Pair Imposter 02-09-2013 02:24 AM

John Tavares

You were "the next one"
After "the next one," that is.
His feats dim your own

:(

SwordsgoneWild 02-09-2013 02:33 AM

Mike Sillinger wins every single face off (you guys know what im talking about).

The Sabres dont even try and win 4 games to 1-- Whoops I have my head in the past.

SwordsgoneWild 02-09-2013 02:38 AM

Islanders win 3-1 (yes i know I predicted a Sabres win in the other GD thread but what the hell)

Tommy Salo with 40 saves.

Debating whether or not I should trek through the snow & spend money to watch this debacle in person? Or just wait until we come to NJ and at least watch a loss in the confines of a modern, state-of-the-art arena.

What do you think ?

Save your money. It will only in end in frustration and heartbreak (gee im a pessimist).

VaporTrail 02-09-2013 03:08 AM

9-2 Islanders..by the end of the game Jochen Hecht will be promoted to the second line, and he will be on the PP as well....Lindy's MVP.

Or a realist.

Not for nothing, asbestos aside, there's a cool feeling taking in a game from NVMC. I couldn't begin to explain it properly, but it has something to do with the coziness... One gigantic parking lot, tiny concourses, reminders of the Aud kick off every time I'm there. Can't explain.

Unlike SwordsgoneWild, I say go to the game, unless your disposable income goes towards your iguana fund, in which case do not.

#YOLO

YOLO and YOSSLTTFTAY (you only see sabres live two to five times a year)...

My iguana fund strikes me as more important right now. I'm leaning towards staying home.

It has stopped snowing, finally. I can take the two iguanas that I own for their breakfast walk soon - though bed to kill this alkie binge is a much more enticing and intelligent idea right now (compared to walking my igwannaz - they can wait to poop or excrete or whatever they do)

_______

From the injury thread above:

Kaleta and Sekera cleared to play.

Both better be suiting up.

jBuds 02-09-2013 04:03 AM

Iguana fund... Can't get over that. Kid strikes again.

GUANO BOWLS. COLLECT THE WHOLE SET.

Let me guess ... White devil, white devil?

Additionally, iguanas and guano bowls aside, Isles have been kind of fun to watch this year. I'm torn. Going to sleep on it for a couple hours.

Luceni 02-09-2013 04:31 AM

I say bufallo wins a close game 4:5

Vanek (3), Pominville, Hodgson; Grabner (2), Nielsen, Taveres

TheHoff 02-09-2013 05:49 AM

Just realized that Myers is a -9...

Although +/- stats aren't always super duper indicators for how a player plays, this stat kinda reflects his season so far... :(

Duddy 02-09-2013 05:53 AM

Sabres surprise, sink 'slanders seven - six.

Tapu Fino 02-09-2013 05:54 AM

this thread is a joke, right?
