That's the worst thing about that game. We won in overtime and all the Habs fans were cheering inside the building. Occasionally you'd hear a Sabres fan tell us "Shut up, it's the playoffs that matter!" but then someone would chime in to the top of his lungs "Hey, shut the **** up!" and there'd be a roar of laughter and even more of the Ole song.
This has been my experience every time in Buffalo. The season opener was a bit different because the Buffalo fans were more pumped up than usual, and got a good come-from-behind victory, but the experience was still pleasant. That game (the one you went to.. Kovalev scored in overtime) was unbelievable. I was sitting just right of the corner in the end where Montreal scored in OT. Fantastic game to see.
