I have a very laid-back way of looking at things. If this Sabres team really has it in them to win the cup...then there is really nothing to worry about. They are better than the Rangers. They'll put forth the effort and get it done. If they lose, they obviously didn't have it in them to do whatever it takes, so who cares if they lose now or later. They have no injuries so it's completely in their grasp to dominate this game. If they play the whole game they'll win. I'm pretty confident this team is ready to show some determination.

I now know why they are called the Rags. Seriously, their fans are worst then the Ruin's.

If we don't win this, we didn't play hard enough and don't deserve to see the Sens in the next round. It's the sad truth.

"You guys know how important this is," Drury said. "I think you're really going to see us focused tomorrow night."

Prove it. On the ice.

Huge game this is. Nowhere to go, backs against the wall...and all that.

Sabres need to win it to give themselves a good chance to either carry it over to game 6 an dpull it out or more likely 7 at home, because if the Rangers outplay them again for the balance of the game for the 4th game in a row, this baby is over back in MSG. They have to take a lesson from game #2 in this series which they did not pay for on home ice because it would have been extremely costly now.

Good luck

People seem to forget what it took for Carolina to win the Cup last year. They were down 2 games to none in round 1 vs. Montreal. Had to win some OT games just to pull it out in six. They also had to go the full 7 games vs. Buffalo and Edmonton and win plenty of 1 goal and OT games to do it.

My point is that winning the Cup is an unbelieveable grind. Most team that do it face serious adversity somewhere along the way. If Buffalo is destined to win the Cup they are going to have to win their share of 1 goal grinders and maybe some OT games. It's just the way it is. There is no easy way to Lord Stanley. Let's see if they can grab momentum back tonight. I sure hope so.

I'm with you there, that was an enjoyable press conference.



Reporter: Coach, do you sense any nerves and anxiety?

Lindy: Yes, I still sense it with James Patrick. He still makes me nervous as a first year coach... Hyper and, oh my god.... Yes, I'm being serious. He's got to settle down a little bit.

Reporter: He says he doesn't like you talking about him.

Lindy: Well, when he relaxes a little bit I'll quit talking about him!

Hoping the Sabres pull out a win, if for no reason other than to lighten up the mood around here.

Thanks for pulling together the GDT.

My God, it feels good to see 'None' on the Sabres injury report list . . . hopefully it stays that way. *knocks on wood*

If Buffalo wants to advance, they're going to play scared. We've seen how they play when they're scared. It's scary good is what it is. This series is now a best-of-3, with two at home. Advantage: Buffalo. Take this one, and take the one in New York. With Jersey up against the wall, facing a rested Ottawa team (should Buffalo and Ottawa advance) would be, well . . . not good.

Sabres 5 Rangers 2

Buffalo gets first goal..early..sets tone physically, keeps NY on its heels

Screw NY!!

Thats what I hope.

I think we will be skating in quicksand, unable to penetrate their bubble around Lundy easily and win 3-2.

Madam cleo told me 3-1 Sabres. She hasn't been wrong yet during the playoffs.

Sabres strike first and early, rangers make interesting after a 3rd period collapse. 4-2. GWG will be a contraversial call.

Hopefully the boys play a solid 60 minutes of hockey (hell, I'll settle for 40 at this point ) and win this one soundly. Probably going to be close though, 3-2, maybe 4 with an EN, hopefully with the Sabres on the higher end of things

4-1 Sabres. Skating on real ice = 'Nuff said.

Edit: I went to Shea's last night to see Monty Pyhton's Spamalot and towards the end of the show the lead actor managed to work in a name drop for the Buffalo Sabres...the crowd went absolutely ape****. It was great.

Then, on the way back to the parking garage, you know that building that usually puts up different colored lights at the peak of the building? Well last night it was a perfect blue and gold...

Good signs people...good signs.
