If Doc is doing the game, we are auto-doomed. If it's Dave or Joe or Kenny (is Joe even doing versus games this year?), we are still doomed due to minimalism GDT.

If any gamblers from outside are reading this for info, I'd go under heavy.

2-1 Devils.

Vanicque continues to truck and scores our goal, but Ziouxbrysce scores both for NJ, or something like that.

Edit: fine...

Team of scaredy-cats
Back at home, crowd should boo them
Buffalo, Jho! JHO!

Going to the game tonight with my wife and a few buddies, I sure hope Buffalo wins! My one buddy is in from out of town and is a huge devils fan so I'll never hear the end of it if the sabres lose.

It's actually pretty rad for us FiOS people. It's the only way we get to watch Sabres in HD at this point.

I'd take local coverage and SD over VS and HD any day of the week.

Sad, but true. Versus games make me realize just how amazing gamecenter live is, and how much it sucks when a game is nationally televised. Sigh.

My girlfriend had never watched a Versus game before, and asked me why the weird bald guy by the benches wouldn't stop talking.

Over the course of 82 games, sure.

For those of us who only get HD as an occasional treat, I'll take it when it's available. I can shut those guys out.

Ha. My girlfriend watches very little hockey, but when the games are on versus she does the same thing. About 5 minutes in, she'll look up from here book/computer and say something like "why is this game so boring?" Or "Why are the announcers interupting each other?" Or "Why aren't they talking about what's happening?"

Long live Jeanneret,
Pray his career goes into,
OO oo Oo vertime!

My son refered to Pierre as "that weirdo-head" during the last game. Good lad.

A win would be nice but a loss wouldn't be the end of the world either, though many fans might think so.

I do wish MSG and Verizon would get their act together. I realize that this is mostly MSG's fault withholding the broadcast. If they did get it, I'd move to FiOS in a heartbeat.

Go !

Yet another foe
On second of back-to-back
Rested Sabres win

I get the sense that tonight's game will be only slightly more exciting than watching paint dry or grass grow. The Devs played a physical game in Boston last night and will likely play a conservative game in front of Brodeur. I think we'll see prolonged stretches of ugly hockey, but I think we score early in the 3rd and hold on, 2-1.

BUFFALO GO!!

For those interested and anyone with /considering FIOS
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/ver...-hd-2011-11-16

Cablevision's appeal of the ruling mandating they allow HD access was just recently completed and denied.

Really hope this goes through soon. Finally moved somewhere with FiOS access and this has been the only thing holding me back from switching over.

Edit: Some folks on one of the Verizon boards have been mentioning 11/25 as the rumored date for availability. No idea how accurate that is, but it would be nice.

But thanks to Pierre, after tonight, he'll never not know that Peter DeBoer coached Derek Roy when both were with the Kitchener Rangers. I'm being conservative here and putting the over/under on Roy/DeBoer/Kitchener Rangers references at 2.5.
