This game scares me. If Sabres continue to give a huge shooting margin in the first period like MTL and PHIL, we could be in for a long night. Minus McKee, who was very physical againt Philly, makes it even scarier. Marty has to be on top of his game tonight. We can't afford a single soft goal.

Some optimism because we seem to do well against OTT historically.

2-2 tie

After a 7-1 thrashing of a big rival this is the perfect time for a Sens letdown. That being said:

Sens 4
Sabres 1 (Brown)

I dunno, tie or one goal loss for the Sens.

Hasek is long gone but the yips continue for the Sens at HSBC.

Sabres on the PP now.


What a exciting game and there's no goals! This is how low scoring hockey is played with great goaltending not no BS trap and left wing lock.

Very entertaining first period. Pleanty of scoring chances for both teams, with the Sabres getting the slight edge. So far so good, the team seems to be up for the game and they're playing with a lot of intensity. Let's see how they come out for the second period.

-Boy am I glad to see Roy back in the lineup.

Sabres win while facing the adversity of blowing a 2 goal lead in less than a minute I believe it was. Nice effort tonight, solid game from Biron. But Lalime is my first star. This should have been a 4 or 5 to 2 decision, but Lalime was tremendous.

This will hopefully be the one and only time I reply to myself on Hockeysfuture.com (it's kind of like kissing your sister I think. I say I think because I don't have any sisters..but I digress).............

Sure enough a one goal loss by the Sens...........It sucks being the son of Kreskin sometimes.

One of the best games I've seen all year. And happily, 18K+ also witnessed it and many got to go home with a win. I was impressed with the number of committed Sens fans who made the trip---I gave directions to a couple car-loads of them and also spoke to a couple in the bar who were hanging around the Bubble Hockey at Pearl St. Nice guys, helluva committment to drive all the way down from Western (in London) for the game.

The defense was strong for most of the game---the thought Tallinder and Campbell had their steadiest games of the entire year. Fitzpatrick attoned for blowing the check in front of the net on the Sens second goal by snapping in the winner and the Zhitnik-Kalinin combo continued to tick.

And Biron made some phenominal stops. If he can string together a final 40 games as he did 2 years ago, there may be some playoff hopes yet alive come the deadline....

Fun game!! So glad we got out with a win.

My section was filled with old people that got angry when you'd get up and shout. What is the deal?

Sabres22.. saw me when I almost fell on my face after I stepped over my seat.. bwahaha.. smooth very smooth!! lol...

Biron and Lalime made some great saves.

It was exciting. Sabres sure do get up for games against the Sens.
