The Bruins gave that game away to Buffalo last night with uncharateristic defensive mistakes.

For the most part of the game, the B's were all over Buf with chances left and right. The turning point was when Looch missed that glorious chance that would have make it 4-1 then exploded a facking buf dmen into the board, leading to that 5on3 goal from Vanek after Chara held him for a 2min long two man down. That got the Sabres back in it.

But after Krejci got us back in front with a great goal, Tuukka allowed his weakest goal of the season. The Bruins still got plenty of chances and Bergeron was a little more loft away to make it 5-5 late in the 3rd.

Yes Thornton lost his fight. Yes he's out.

But let's not make the Sabres the team they are not because of all this.

They are not even in the playoffs right now despite winning that game and Vanek scoring 15pts+leading the league.

Meanwhile, we have only 1 loss, in 2nd place in the conference and only 1pt back of TB.

Give me the Sabres any day in a best of 7 series. That would be a nice workout for the next round...
