Well, this will be a beatdown of epic proportions. Maybe Matt Cooke can take out Ruff.

Crosby and Malkin against our defense really scares me. I see us being pinned in our zone a lot tomorrow.

I think Miller will have to steal us this one.

The Penz really can hurt you in so many ways it's scary.

Maybe if Gaustad had lost a fight embarrassingly to a Penguin, I'd say the Sabs are in the Pens heads----like they are Boston, but alas, 'tis not the case.

6-2 Birdies.

We are still relatively early in the season and if the last 3 wins in 4 games is any proof, we're not a bad team, and are capable of being a playoff team.

That being said, 3-2 win in OT for the 'Bres.

Sabres jump on them, taking 2-0 lead in the first 10 minutes. Pens win 4-3 in OT.

As much as I hate saying it, Miller is Crosby's *****. Now would be a great time for that "relationship" to end.
Unfortunately, not gonna happen in this game.

Pens are beatable. Just depends which Sabres team shows up.

This one scares me. A win...and they're suddenly sniffing .500 and riding high after beating two of the top teams in the East. A loss...and they're back in the basement. This could tell us a lot about which direction this season will head.

It's like Little Big League.

"Scotty is hitting .470 against lefties this year, on Tuesdays, where the temperature is a prime number. So he's got that goin for him."

Would love a win. Expecting a beat down. Prove me wrong you *******s.

yeah, its probably time for one of their win streaks to troll us with 'winnable' games ahead after Pit vs Wpg, Tor, Nyi, Tb, & Fla, before another tough run (Nj, Nyr, Car, Nj, Phi, Nyr)

Everyone who calls them the Bres should shoot themselves in the uvula. It's never been a thing, never will be a thing. Just stop.

5-1 PGH

Aren't we like 3-98-4 against the Pens since the 04-05 lockout or something? Bloody hell. 8-2 Pens.

I'll be there so that means ....

Crosby, Malkin, Neal = a beating


5-1

Stafford, Ott, or Leopold with the lone goal.



I wonder if anti ruff comments or signs will magically appear
