CrankyJay 02-16-2013 06:13 PM

Well, this will be a beatdown of epic proportions. Maybe Matt Cooke can take out Ruff.

Trolls win

Fire Lindy 02-16-2013 06:48 PM

Crosby and Malkin against our defense really scares me. I see us being pinned in our zone a lot tomorrow.

I think Miller will have to steal us this one.

Squantosawuss 02-16-2013 06:52 PM

The Penz really can hurt you in so many ways it's scary.

Maybe if Gaustad had lost a fight embarrassingly to a Penguin, I'd say the Sabs are in the Pens heads----like they are Boston, but alas, 'tis not the case.

6-2 Birdies.

I can almost guarantee that this team will not tank for a draft pick, no matter how much you want them to. Pegula and Regier are prideful and would rather barely squeak into (or miss) the playoffs than tank. We have too much talent to be a real lottery team. We are still relatively early in the season and if the last 3 wins in 4 games is any proof, we're not a bad team, and are capable of being a playoff team.

That being said, 3-2 win in OT for the 'Bres. :yo:

MGIII 02-16-2013 07:00 PM

If Myers shows up Sabres win.

Sabres jump on them, taking 2-0 lead in the first 10 minutes. Pens win 4-3 in OT.

oldgoalie 02-16-2013 08:07 PM

As much as I hate saying it, Miller is Crosby's *****. Now would be a great time for that "relationship" to end.
Unfortunately, not gonna happen in this game.

BUFSABES1981 02-16-2013 08:13 PM

Pens are beatable. Just depends which Sabres team shows up.

New Sabres Captain 02-16-2013 08:26 PM

Sabres are 1-0 on NBC this year. :D

And they're also 1-0 against teams from Pennsylvania this year. :naughty:

Rhett4 02-16-2013 09:34 PM

This one scares me. A win...and they're suddenly sniffing .500 and riding high after beating two of the top teams in the East. A loss...and they're back in the basement. This could tell us a lot about which direction this season will head.

It's like Little Big League.

"Scotty is hitting .470 against lefties this year, on Tuesdays, where the temperature is a prime number. So he's got that goin for him."

Would love a win. Expecting a beat down. Prove me wrong you *******s.

yeah, its probably time for one of their win streaks to troll us with 'winnable' games ahead after Pit vs Wpg, Tor, Nyi, Tb, & Fla, before another tough run (Nj, Nyr, Car, Nj, Phi, Nyr)

JOHNBOY 02-16-2013 11:00 PM

I think there going to lose this one in OT...

enrothorne 02-16-2013 11:20 PM

Everyone who calls them the Bres should shoot themselves in the uvula. It's never been a thing, never will be a thing. Just stop.

5-1 PGH

RiotAct 02-16-2013 11:53 PM

Aren't we like 3-98-4 against the Pens since the 04-05 lockout or something? Bloody hell. 8-2 Pens.

Whichever direction gets them closer to 10th. :laugh:

ZZamboni 02-17-2013 12:13 AM

I'll be there so that means ....

Crosby, Malkin, Neal = a beating


5-1

Stafford, Ott, or Leopold with the lone goal.



I wonder if anti ruff comments or signs will magically appear :sarcasm:
