Good game guys, Miller is a beast (unfortunately for us ) and the ending of the game was ridiculously intense.

You may wanna watch the replay, that was a very tough angle, a dman blocking most of the net and the puck was rolling on a backhander. 99.9% of the time that's not going in, doesn't matter who's shooting.

Dominating game again for the Sabres. Doesn't say much for the Leaves or Flyers because i don't really think much of Buffalo's offense. Leaves are their usual pathetic selves for sure.

1. We weren't gifted any 5 on 3s. Your players took dumbass penalty after dumbass penalty.
2. Even if everything you listed were true, none of it shows the Sabres dominating. You got outshot 35 to 20 and outplayed in every zone except for the netminding.

The ONLY reason you got the W is Miller.

You don't think having a 3 minute five on three plus even more PP time on top of that had anything to do with it?

GTFO laughs fan. You're just going to embarrass yourself.

So you're denying that Miller won that game?

The only reason we didn't score 3 goals on that 5 on 3 was Miller. Not your PK. Your whole PK was just Miller.

Miller played very well during that sequence, but so did the pk'ers out there. It was most definitely not all Miller.

9 shots during the 5 on 3. At least 3 unreal saves by Miller.

64-0

No the Sabres did not dominate. They made enough plays to win the game on the road on the back end of a back-to-back.

But for all the dominating the Sabres did against the Flyers, they still barely won that game. Tied until 5 mins left in the 3rd, and if one of those ref calls went the other way (which it very well could have) it's a totally different game.

Bottom line is when it counted, the Sabres made it count. How they got there is irrelevant. After years of mental midgets, that's a very encouraging sign.

shooting a rolling puck over the glass isn't a dumbass penalty. Its a dumbass rule. No player does that on purpose
Steve Ott brushed at the puck, last year that wouldn't have been called but players need time to adjust to the new rules. Not a dumbass penalty.

Pkers played great and most of your shots came from the outside. I agree the leafs played a better game, but shots aren't a good way to measure who dominated the game, and the reason the total was so slanted was because they had 7 power plays compared to the sabres 3. Ennis missed an open net on a 2 on 1 that would have made it 3-0 and not even a game, and Pommers missed the empty net.

The Vanek Hodgson and Pominville line played a complete all around game, and were the best players on the ice tonight after Miller. To say Miller was the only reason we won that game just makes you sound like a typical uneducated leafs fan.

That Stafford interference call was weak at best. Lupul dove. The Ott penalty was weaker at best. Those (plural) 5 on 3's were a joke. The Kaleta "roughing" penalty was a joke. You are letting the fact that the Leafs played an inordinate amount of time with 2 more players on the ice than the Sabres cloud your judgement of the game. "Outplayed in every aspect aside from Miller?" To me, to pretty much glide through a game except for the last two minutes having to endure 4 straight minutes of 5 on 3, on the road, in a home opener, that was actually free for the home team's fans, i would say is pretty dominating. Had the game been spent 5 on 5, it would have been even more dominating. If it was the Sabres getting gifted the ridiculous power players, it would have been unbelievably dominating.

Toronto media is so homer-ish

And the fans ate it up when Colton Orr downed six-foot-eight John Scott in the first period, and Mark Fraser dropped Marcus Foligno in the third in a pair of fights.
Whether Orr downed Scott is up for debate, but Fraser didn't drop Foligno

That's pretty funny, the Orr-Scott fight was about even but Scott lost balance and dropped to his knees after landing a good punch on Orr, so it looked like Orr won but really Scott just fell down. Foligno-Fraser again was pretty even and I may even give the slight edge to Foligno. I guess Toronto needs something to cheer for though..so I'll give it to them.

1. Steve Ott gloving the puck was the result of him being hooked down. Should have been a Leaf penalty first. Other than that, I can live with the calls.

2. The Sabres got outshot because you had such a massive PP advantage. As for being outplayed in every zone, hardly. That game was one Tyler Ennis blunder away from being 3-0 and not even within reach for the Leafs.

The ONLY reason the Leafs were that competitive is because of the powerplays.
