at this point idc how we win whether it be beating their faces in, barely beating them in the third or blowing them out...a win is a win and Buffalo needs to give them three period hockey loss-period. Scott and Foligno need to be basically obsolete other than throwing their fists...we need a balance of revenge yet not going so far as being unable to win...

This game will decide if the ship will sink or not. A win with some fights and guys sticking up for each other would be huge for team. That being said, I dont like our chances

a bit OT but no suspension for the Brown hit on Kaleta? This league is a travesty. Idc if its only Kaleta, the dude had to go to the hospital. What a joke.

Really think the Sabres will play at least as good of a game as they did against Philly in the opener. I think we'll be pleased by the entertainment and effort. Won't be easy to win though, the Bruins really damn good.

For what it's worth, Ruff thought it was a fairly clean play

Sabres 2



Bruins 6


We get our a$$ handed to us.... And say thank you kind sir.

I hope the GDT doesn't get ugly like it did with those classy Leafs fans.

I don't share that bad feeling about this game. This is the time to show that the team has gotten tougher and I hope they really feed off Bruins toughness. I want a war out there tonight, and a Sabres win at the end.

3-2 for the Sabres.
Vanek, Foligno, Grigorenko

I figure the GDT will be about as classy as a Jack Edwards highlights reel.

This isn't something I'm amped for, but once it starts I will get into it heavy. Always do vs. Boston
