Exactly what bullet, and from which gun would one be able to make this realistically happen?

Lighten the **** up.

It's a thing. It has been done before.

'Bres lose, bullet hits uvula but also catches the throat in its entirety.

We are also in the midst of a Vanek cold streak! 3 games straight without a point, and invisibility overall in the past two games!!!!! Nobody is immune.

Ended up getting some last minute tickets so I'll be in attendance. First time ever seeing Crosby play, should be fun to see him shred Buffalo's D.

I'll say 5-2 Pens.

Hey guys, I am taking my girlfriend to the game today and was wondering if you are allowed to take cameras in? I ask because its not a typical snap and go, but a Nikon SLR. It's my fun camera and this is her first NHL game. Thanks for the responses.

Camera Policy:

The camera policies are as follows:
  • Buffalo Sabres/Buffalo Bandits games: Flash photography is permitted. Guests may use cameras (including digital) with long lenses provided they do not obstruct the view of other patrons. In addition, guests and their cameras cannot block aisles or access-ways. Tri-Pods are NOT permitted.
  • Guests may only take photos from their seats, and are not permitted to use the "mouseholes" in the glass. Video cameras are permitted during youth hockey only. Only credentialed media are permitted to use approved areas, such as the 200 level platforms and glass cut outs. For questions regarding camera policies for other First Niagara Center events, please call Account Services at 1-888-GO-SABRES (1-888-467-2273).
  • Concerts/Events: The policy varies from show to show. Video/audio recorders are prohibited. If cameras are permitted, they are usually limited to 35mm, disposable or digital cameras. The camera policy for individual shows will be posted with the event information approximately 1 week prior to the show.

In addition to what Woodhouse quoted, I also believe the lens must be attached to the camera (which means just 1 lens can be brought in). That's what I've heard security personnel tell people with cameras.

Some blurbs from today's game notes:
  • NBC Crew: Gord Miller, Joe Micheletti
  • Referees: Dave Jackson (8), Kevin Pollock (33)
  • Linesmen: Derek Nansen (70), Tim Nowak (77)
  • Ntl. Anthem: Baylee Morrison (so that 8-y/o girl again)
Also, some more stats:
  • The Sabres are 2-8-0 in their last 10 games vs. the Penguins; 3-4-3 at home.
  • Buffalo’s 4-2 win on Friday vs. BOS was the team’s first win without getting a point from Thomas Vanek or Jason Pominville since March 23, 2012 at NYR (4-1 win).
  • Jason Pominville has been held without a point in three consecutive home games for the first time since Nov. 20 to Nov. 26, 2010.
  • The two teams combined to score 32 goals in the four meetings last season (PGH, 17; BUF, 15). That’s the most combined goals in the season series between the teams since 1995-96 when they totaled 45 goals (PGH, 23; BUF, 22) in six meetings.
  • The 8.0 combined average goals per game for the Penguins and Sabres last season was the most since they combined to average 8.5 goals in four games in 1992-93 (PGH, 18; BUF, 16).
  • The Penguins dominated the special teams matchup between the teams last season, going 6-for-14 (42.9%) on the man-advantage and killing off all 10 Buffalo power-play chances.
  • The Penguins have held the Sabres without a power-play goal in six straight meetings entering today. The last time Buffalo scored on the man-advantage against Pittsburgh was Dec. 11, 2010. Since that PPG from Tyler Ennis, the Penguins have killed off 16 straight Buffalo power plays.
  • Pittsburgh has gone 17-7 in its last 24 meetings against the Sabres. In those 24 games the Penguins have averaged 3.38 goals.
  • The Penguins have gone 8-3 in their last 11 visits to the First Niagara Center.
  • D Deryk Engelland has notched four points (2G-2A) in seven career games against Buffalo. The Sabres are the lone NHL team he has scored multiple goals against, while his four points against them represent the most he has accumulated against any team (also has 4 points vs. NYR).
  • The Penguins are 13-5-1 in day games over the past two seasons
  • James Neal has notched at least one goal in three straight games and he has six goals over his previous six games.
  • Sidney Crosby enters today’s game having recorded at least one point in 13 straight games against the Buffalo Sabres. During his streak, Crosby has 20 points (7G-13A), while the Penguins have posted a 10-3 record. Crosby has tallied points in all 12 of his visits to the First Niagara Center – totaling 17 points (7G-10A). For his career, Crosby has tallied at least one point in 19 of 21 games against the Sabres.
  • Fleury is 5-1-1 with a 2.10 goals-against average and a .935 save percentage in seven career starts at the First Niagara Center. He is 6-1 in his last seven overall starts against the Sabres.

#Pens coach Bylsma: Fleury in goal. Bortuzzo will play. Forwards will stay the same.

Per coach Bylsma, Bortuzzo playing because of his ruggedness against physical Sabres. Despres will be scratched

Tbh, i will never get used to the sabres being described as physical.


Here's hoping for a good game and a possible 2 points for the 'Bres!
