The Aud was an impressive and beautiful old building, even if it did become outdated for NHL purposes. The Coliseum is just a dump, no two ways about it. Hell, the Isles farm team in Bridgeport have a far nicer (if smaller capacity) arena than their parent franchise does.

Out of the NYC-area arenas, the Prudential Center is my favorite to watch a game in. Really nice arena with nice amenities, even if he crowd is always half-empty and the atmosphere is even deader than a Sabres home game.

I won't even predict which isle team shows tonight, the hard working forechecking team or the one that talks about a 60 minute effort, only to come out flat.

Let's go isles

I didn't know the Isles were Buffalo's doppelganger?

Anyway, this thread for sure is a joke. (I hope)

I had no idea his plus minus was that bad. Jeez.

There is a weird pleasure I take out of the rare game at NVMC. Again... Can't explain it.

But yeah, the Rock is about as top notch as it gets. I am a big fan of the open concourses

Now that the countdown is on, I'm going to get down to see the Sabres play at the Mausoleum. So much history in that building.

Yeah the Rock is very nice to go to. The attendance thing is getting better too which is good for them. NVMC is a dump. No two ways about it. I dislike going there.

We lose 12-1. After the game, the City of Buffalo begins erecting a bronze statue of Lindy Ruff and Darcy Regier atop the new City Hall.

Ugh the Isles again. Prepare for another Panthers game. Sabres lose 4-3 after having two leads.

My best hockey friend and neighbor is a diehard Islanders fan. Every year since 2007 we watch the Isles home games at his house and Sabres home games at my house. Been quite the tradition. But, unfotunately the Isles lead the series and it always seems to be the most frustration games to watch. Please please please prove this trend wrong tonight. Sabres doppelganger no longer!

I feel like John Tavares is going to dominate us so hard that after the 2nd period he'll take off his skates and just play in his socks - then his line (Including Boyes) will still score 3 goals against us in the 3rd.

Good times. Can't wait.

Tyler Myers will be a healthy scratch tonight

Can a mod edit the thread title to let people know? I can't believe NHL.com broke the news for me

As long as the third pairing only gets offensive zone starts and powerplay action, that gives us two decent pairings with a puck moving guy. Still, that's a buttery soft top six.
