What is the song that was played in the arena when the pre-game videos are playing this game and tuesday night? Ive got a playlist on my iPod I listen to with songs played at games on the way to games, but I dont have this one.
Thats about all I have to say about this game. I think we had 1 real hit all night.
I'm not upset at all about this, they had to lose sometime, and I'd rather they stumble now rather then later. And hey, the Slugs shut us out heading into the playoffs in 06, remember how that turned out?
And congrats to Staal for ruining the shutout, and potting #40!
My feelings as well, LFTH. (And monkeys can't dance every night, I guess ... )
I believe the the Sabres loss of an entire defense corps played a pretty significant role in the outcome of that series. I remember it pretty well. It happened just before Edmonton lost their starting goaltender and Conn Smyth candidate.
Wow, talk about a whine getting better with age, not to mention getting exaggerated.
Apparently your memory has faded. Entire D corps? Sorry but no cigar. Yes, they lost guys as the series went along but why let reality get in the way of some major crying. The replacements played well and at the time were still facing a rookie goaltender who'd spent the season as a back-up. You ran him off once but couldn't finish the deal.
Roloson had a great first round series but had long come back to earth prior to the Finals. By the way, he was getting beaten like a drum by the Canes before he got hurt.
However, very impressive by Buffalo last night and they deserved the win even if it didn't help in their pursuit of the playoffs.
What I find strange is that we lost to the Sabres (a team/fanbase I absoutly dispise) and I don't even care. Maybe it was seeing all the dejected Sabres faces when they watched the Rangers beat the Flyers and officially eliminate their team.
And this just seems too fitting for some reason:
Buffalo came off the ice and watched as the New York Rangers wrapped up a 2-1 win over Philadelphia, ending their playoff hopes.
