Yeah, but I'm glad they had all that time to get over jet lag.

If the Sabres had had to play on Tuesday or Wednesday, it might have been ugly.

I agree, I just hate waiting. This whole week has pretty much just been:

Adam's rookie points
leeching off all-pro wingers
E Staal two point oh?

Jeff Skinner, ginger.
Great at diving and scoring
Roy's better at both.

One team from the North, one team from the South
A franchise marked by luck, and one with none
Do battle at the fine Niagara's mouth
Upon the setting of the autumn sun.
The blust'ring winds, directed by Maurice,
Rough Sabres, blades worn with decades of pain
The Bullies, Rigas, and skate in the crease
Turned warm springs into cold showers of rain.
But there is now a hope for broken swords
A Blacksmith Terries not with saving grace
With purse by which the team's change he affords
He aims to whet the rusted rapiers face
And then the newly sharpened sword, yet warm,
Might penetrate even the strongest storm.
this got me jacked up for the game. well done.

It signifies Rod Brind'amour's secret technique to winning faceoffs for Carolina: cheating.

Surprised it slipped by so many of you.

The house will definitely be a rockin'.....

Tonight Buffalo opens a serious can of whoop ass on Carolina....

We score at least 4 goals and win by at least 2.....

Early game that shows how much of a contender we are, and how much of a pretender Carolina will be


LET'S GO BUFFALO !!!

I haven't seen this posted... If it has, it's worth repeating on this home opening night:

Quote:
Buffalo Sabres (2-0)
Thomas Vanek scored five points in his first two games, wins over the Ducks and Kings (no creampuffs) in Europe yet. So how does it feel to be big-payroll fatcats, Buffalo people? Not bad, eh? Pass the caviar and light up a Havana stogie because the good times for these ice men figure to last with Terry Pegula signing the checks.

I haven't felt this excited for a home opener in a while.

This game will be LIVE on NHL Network in Canada - not NHL Network in the United States.
NHL Network in the United States is scheduled to show NHL on the Fly from 7:00 pm ET to 4:00 am ET.

There is a schedule replay of Canes-Sabres for NHL Network-United States for 1:00 pm ET on Saturday afternoon.

Sabres win 4-1 - Vanek, Ennis, Adam and Ehrhoff with the Sabres goals.
Skinner for the Canes.

Can't wait. As cool as the Europe games were, this feels like the first real home game. Bring the boys back home!

Been waiting for this all week. I just hope it's a different outcome than last year's home opener.

New owner, new era, so I think it will be.

5-2 us.
