Canes @ Sabres 7pm: Round 2

.929 .938

.924 .926

.923 .920

If you're a knowledgeable hockey fan (really means Canadian) You would know why I would have those numbers up there and how it relates to tonight's game

Hint: The first set of numbers belongs to the Canes starting goalie tonight

Hint: The second set belongs to an ugly American (the real reason true hockey fans hate him)

Hint: The third set belongs to the worst Stanley cup winning goaltender of all time.

Have fun with that brain teaser, slug fans. No, it's not Ed Belfour.


Go Canes!!!

ps: I apologize for the ****** GDT, I'm about as sick as any fan would be if they watched Buffalo sports playoff highlights on a continuous loop. I think I need to go vomit just thinking about it.

Assuming that tonights game will follow the pattern Canes will give up 2 goals.

Following patterns: Hat trick for EStaal.

Two goals for Skinner on the night, but tears of jelly in locker room after EStaal hatty and teammate accolades.

Let's see, since the Canes have raised the hopes of their fanbase just slightly because of last night's game, they'll be sure to crush them tonight. 6-0 blasting. Give up a goal in the first 5 minutes, get routinely scored on throughout the rest of the game. And physically dominated as well.

I also imagine the top 2 lines are going to be dead tired by the 2nd period. Seemed like the entire 3rd period, it was just alternating between the first two lines.

Sounds about right. If Ellis starts anyway, he's much better than Cam Ward after all.

Grigorenko didn't score last night so he should be netting his first tonight. The next possible date for his first career goal would be March 5th.

If Ellis doesn't start, heads have to roll. It's bad enough he's not the starter, but a vezina contender can't even play the back end of a back to back? Outrage.

Very good chance Dan Ellis gets the start tonight in Buffalo.

I'd expect him to start.

Ellis vs Miller tonight.

So, if Buffalo wins, we can start the same whining excuse the HeadLice used last night.

You know that you can believe Sabres fans on the board about how cold their 2-4 lines have been on the offensive end when they're proven right by someone not picking up a first goal last night.

On the season:

Pominville - 3G
Hodgson - 3
Vanek - 2
Ott - 1
Myers - 1

Last night:

Pominville - 2G
Hodgson - 1

^ I'm more interested in the fact that almost all of them are predicting a 3 or 4 goal win tonight, 24 hours after losing to us.

In fairness, last night they had a back-up goalie and the Canes had their starter and tonight it is reverse. Also, they are at home tonight.

I'm a bit concerned myself that the Canes have a bit of a let-down and take it on the chin tonight.

Yeah my guess would be a let down with a back up goaltender after a big win.....or exactly what the Hurricanes have done every time the back up has played the last 5 years or so.

Sabres are going to come out physical I would guess, so the Canes will need to weather the first period storm in this one. They can, but if they even want a point they prettymuch HAVE to.

I can see a let down on this one. As much as Carolina wanted that win last night, Buffalo is going to want this one. They will come out hitting from the get go to set the tempo. The boys need to be ready and buckle down. Weather that storm for the first 10 minutes, and they may have a chance.

To the OP, what's the .924 from, assuming the ugly American is actually the most hideous American?

Hopefully this game won't be as ****** as the weather is, although I have my doubts...

I agree on this one, but the biggest surprise with last year's team was our ability to go 4-0 against a Bruins team that followed this order after a big win against them to open that series.

Not saying that we won't have the let down we're secretly (or not so secretly) dreading, but we actually seemed to handle that style of play pretty well last season. As long as we're not treated to Ellis completely ******** the bed it might produce more fireworks.

Could be interesting to see what happens if the officials should get whistle happy tonight with this Canes PP unit and what has been a Buffalo team carried almost exclusively by the HPV line.

Not official, but I would be very surprised if it wasn't Ellis starting tonight.
