Heres hoping myers can find his game quickly. He settled down in the 3rd yeserday but looked off for the first 40 minutes of yesterdays game. He's so important to the success of this team. I am hoping to see a real good scrap with scott, ott, or foligno.

How freaking great is it to have hockey back 4x a week?

Because that's not the Northeast Division. It's the Eastern Conference. And the Sens are listed first but the number 3 next to their name signifies they're third.

I'm a bit worried about the Sabres playing the back-to-back game, and Toronto gave them some trouble last year. Toronto's not a very good team on paper, but they're scrappy and can surprise you. The Sabres had best come prepared.
I don't understand why with the way Hartnell was playing, Ruff didn't match Scott up with him. Was Ruff afraid of taking the instigator penalty?

Hopefully Leino is back tonight. I'd like to see Hodgson get more powerplay time as well. Controls the play well along the left half boards.

Sabres win 3-1

Pominville, Ennis, or Ehrhoff with a goal

Miller needs to be sharper. His rebound control yesterday was crappy.

He's played 1 game in what, 9 months, and we're already starting with this?

OG is right still...Both are, expecting Miller (if he plays tonight which I assume so) will be a bit better at controlling the rebounds.

If people can complain about the way certain players played why can't we complain about the goaltender.

He did have trouble yesterday. His lack of Rebound control led to the 1st no goal, and his inability to find/feel the puck led to the 2nd no goal. If those go in, its a different game. Also kept his glove very low when he went down. If he kept that glove up a little high on Giroux goal he mightve saved it.

I think we lose. 3-2, Laffs. Sad that I can't remember the last time we won at ACC.

Hodgson
Stafford

Kadri
Kessel
Bozak

Starting with what? Being observational? His rebound control needs to be better. One game or not, it sucked yesterday. It's not as if he labeled Miller an awful goalie who should have been great right from the start after a long layoff.

We've lost five in a row at ACC. Last win came on Nov. 6, 2010 in a shootout.

Question: I see that Time Warner doesn't have a ch 700 anymore. What is the HD channel for the game?

I wish this one were a home game because the energy those games usually have would be a great way to follow yesterday, but this should be really fun either way.

Sabres 38 - Leafs 1

I say 4-3 for Sabres, with or without OT.

Sabres goals:
Vanek
Ehrhoff
Foligno
Grigorenko (I want this so bad)

Leafs goals:
Don't really care.

Some blurbs from tonight's game notes:
Quote:
LEADING THE WAY AGAINST THE LEAFS
Thomas Vanek has 45 points (22+23) in 44 career games against Toronto... Jason Pominville has 44 points (15+29) in 46 career games against the Maple Leafs, including eight (2+6) in six games last season... Ryan Miller is 27-14-0 all-time against Toronto with a 2.44 GAA and a .922 SV%; Miller has more wins (27) and shutouts (4) against the Maple Leafs than any other team.

WELCOME TO BUFFALO
Steve Ott scored yesterday on his first shot with the Sabres, matching a feat last accomplished by Ville Leino in last year’s season-opener vs. Anaheim (10/7/11).

THOMAS THE TANK
Thomas Vanek recorded a career-best five points (2+3) yesterday vs. PHI, becoming the first Sabres player to notch five points since Drew Stafford (3+2) vs. ATL on Jan. 18, 2008. Dating back to last season, Vanek has 16 points (5+11) in his last 11 games.

A FRESH FACE
At 18 years and 254 days old, Mikhail Grigorenko became the sixth 18-year-old ever to dress for the Sabres on opening day yesterday. Only four other players had suited up for the Sabres’ first regular season game at a younger age: Pierre Turgeon (18 years-41 days), Tom Barrasso (18-188), Phil Housley (18-211) and Shawn Anderson (18-244). (Source: Elias Sports Bureau)

LET’S PLAY TWO
Tonight’s game wraps up Buffalo’s first of nine sets of back-to-back games this season after the team had a league-high 21 sets last season. They opened the set with a 5-2 win last night at home vs. PHI. The Sabres finished last season 13-8-0 in the first game and 7-9-5 in the second. The Sabres’ points breakdown in back-to-back sets was as follows: four points (4), three points (2), two points (10), one point (3) and zero points (2).

I think over analyzing any of these players who haven't played in months, after one game, is follow. However, I also don't analyze goaltenders by trying to pin every goal on that player as many people here do.

Also : that Giroux shot was a rocket. That goes in 99 times out of 100 on any goaltender.

You're new, so = sarcasm.
It was just a joke about how after one game the Northeast is running roughshod over the conference.

The same can be said about pretty much every goalie in the league in their first game this year. Watch Price vs the Leafs. He was even worse and he's usually one of the best in the game in that aspect.

I think this is going to be as exciting as our recent encounters. Sabres have a lot of fighting partners now .

Looking forward to Scott vs Orr, Brown vs Kaleta etc!

Can't wait for this one.

Would rather hear Paul Hamilton. That's not a jab at Paul Hamilton either, I think he's pretty decent.
