Go Buffalo! Too bad Kaleta is out. He seems to have a knack for scoring big goals in the garden.

Going to see the K-wings in the ECHL tonight! So I'll have to catch the game after.

Sabres in a high scoring affair. 4-1 with 3 in the first
ROFL!!!!!!!! Sad to say you are too good for the job, you never strayed to talk about your lunch or some other sport like basketball or something of the sort.

"We're starting to get our grove back," said Callahan, who has four goals in his last eight games to bring his season total to 27.

Why do they have a grove and how did they lose it?

Its going to be a tough game. I don't think we've beaten the rangers yet this season. This would be a huge win for us. One point is acceptable.

The Sabres are 0-1-2 against the Rangers this season.

But, they were winless versus Tampa Bay a week ago.

Henrik is a Vezina lock IMO, rightfully so, and finally I might add!!! (have to laud what he has done his entire career)

Look back At the 96-07 team he carried to the playoffs. Blair Betts. Matt Cullen. Brad Isbister. Marcel Hossa. Petr Prucha. Marek Malik. Jed Ortmeyer. Paul Mara. Ryan Hollweg. Nigel Dawes. He was, prior to this season, the ONLY reason the Blueshirts saw the postseason since the lockout was lifted. Now, he has a team in front of him that can play defense and showed themselves highly committed to system, and the uniform goal of winning. Great attitude all year from that team, top to bottom.

THAT SAID, while I will be pulling for them and Henrik when we are officially eliminated in a week, I don't see them making it out of the East under any circumstances, really. Pittsburgh and Boston, to me, are still better playoff teams. More firepower up front by miles (pit and bos compared to nyr), goaltending that is playoff tested, Cup-ring possessing, capable of matching Henrik. You assume the path to the Cup would run you into one of those two teams.

Additionally, Philadelphia would put up a good battle against the Rangers if Bryz heffs to be unmad. Washington always plays the Rangers tough, and while last year is irrelevant (caps are worse now, rags are better now), you know a handful of the Caps players are confident in their ability to put up a fight in a series. I'm praying for the Panthers if I'm the Rangers. Or Ottawa. Miller and Pavelec are series-steal capable, and Washington I already discussed.

LET'S GO BUFF-A-LO!!!! Even though I know the playoffs are out of the question, I'm still pulling for my boys HARDCORE. Look deeper into the self handicapping exhibited by me the past few weeks to see my true heart take care of business!!!!!!!
Pretty spot on with the Rangers and it's basically how I feel. NYR are the 3rd best team in the east behind the Pens and a healthy Bruins team and I want 1st bad because if we get 4th and face the Flyers, we could be done in the 1st round. Every one will point to the 5-0 regular season record but everything changes come playoff time especially if Bryz plays like he has of late. All I say as a Ranger fan is look at 94. The Devils couldn't beat the Rangers in the regular season and then they almost take us out in the ECF. Way too many Ranger fans are underrating the Flyers.

Anyway, good luck tonight guys. I'd like to see Buffalo make the playoffs especially over Washington. I resented Buffalo after the 07 series but I've grown to like them. Even picked up one of the Buffaslug jerseys back then and finally had it autographed by Miller, Roy, and Vanek last time Buffalo was in town. I'll be missing the game because of work but it should be a good one.

We were a talented team that needed to grow and find a core identity way before anyone should have called us a contender.
Good of Miller to address the identity issue. I still don't know what it is though.

- The Sabres are 5-2-3 in their last 10 games vs. the Rangers; 5-3-2 on the road.
- 162nd game all-time between Sabres and Rangers; Buffalo leads the series with a 76-53-32 record. Buffalo is 30-30-19 on the road against the Rangers all-time.

STORYLINES
- Buffalo enters the day one point out of a playoff spot after beginning the day on Feb. 17 in 14th place in the Eastern Conference and 10 points out of eighth in the Eastern Conference. Since then, they’ve gone 11-2-4 (.765), trailing only Pittsburgh for the league's best record during that stretch.
- The Sabres have gotten a point in seven of their last eight games (5-1-2) and 15 of their last 17 (11-2-4).

Gotta get a point, at least. I'm worried, though.... I see a regulation loss.

Sole possession of 8th with a win and a Caps regulation loss. Let's go Buffalo (and Winnipeg)!

The only problem is that the Jets 11-20-4 away from home this year.

I hope they win. But, I'm not expecting them to give the Sabres any help tonight.

Lets hope that the refs finally stop ******* us. Last couple games have been brutal. It's like they are in non-call playoff mode when we should get the PP's but then we see them call weak soft **** on us!

Besides its the Rangers they don't need any extra help to beat us this year....

Allow me to put it as bluntly as possible:

A team that deserves to be in the playoffs would go out tonight and get a win, no matter what they had to do to get there.

A team that loses in regulation is one that doesn't have what it takes.

I'm nominating this for post of the year. I almost fell off my chair laughing at work.
