It was probably just a typo. They meant to say Sabres from last night's game.
Uh, yeah obviously. It was a joke...
Anyway, it could well have been Freudian Slip. For Mr. Literal:
A Freudian slip, also called parapraxis, is an error in speech, memory, or physical action that is interpreted as occurring due to the interference of some unconscious ("dynamically repressed"), subdued, wish, conflict, or train of thought.
