Missed opportunity to get to 30th with the Lightning-Panthers game close
Goal differential on the power play this year: +2 (seven goals for, five goals against)
Not sure where you get your stats, but Buffalo has 11 PPG's on the year.

Only 3 under Rolston (with 4 SHG's) though.

The fact that they are able to stay in most games with one of the worst power plays in the history of the game shows how terrible the Eastern Conference is.

Ah, I had read the home PPG totals, which are stupidly labeled "PPG" and that's it.

Nice to see Sekera back to form tonight. Much of their transition ran through him and it was pretty smooth.
The Amerk line with a lot of possession and pressure.
Foligno was strong on the wall to go along with the 2 goals.
Lots of scouts in the pressbox tonight.
Enroth gets a win. Finally.

Bad -
Leopold's trade value with play like that.

Ugly
Powerless play.
Grigorenko is still on the roster.

U : Powerplay, plus WGR. First postgame I listened to in forever on the way home. Spending time talking about Twitter rumors? Please. Same callers that ***** about Leino being in the lineup when he's healthy complaining about him NOT being put in when he's healthy?

Please.

-Solid start from Enroth, nice to see him finally get a W
-Marcus Foligno...Where you been all season, man?
-Sekera, Ehrhoff, and...you know, I thought Regehr played well tonight too

B:
-Powerplay
-Gerbe and Stafford both screwing up odd-man rushes
-Leopoop

U:
-Is Kevin Porter gonna be RR's Jochen Hecht? Seriously, what is he doing on the PP? I feel like you gotta let Grigs have a chance at that point.
-The tank is off again?

The more I think about it, I think it was more a product of his **** linemates, not gonna get much going with Grigs/Scott. He was moving his legs as always.

Good:
Foligno
Enroth
Flynn
Sekera
Vanek

Bad:
Rangers
Sabres defense in the 1st period. It was like they forgot the fundamentals of defensive play. It was terrible.
Also saw a few bad behind-the-back off-the-board lobs from the D-zone when trying to clear. C'mon guys

Ugly:
The piece of **** drunkard that, on the way to the escalators in a crowd of people (including several small children directly in his vicinity), decides to yell at his friend "BRYCE LOVES ROOSTER". Substitute Rooster. Really, guy?

His schtick is getting tiresome. I can't believe the press in NY puts up with it.

G:
-Foligno
-Sekera
-Enroth
-Hecht!
-Pominville's pass springing Vanek.

B:
-Gerbe butchering that 2-on-1 late in the 2nd. That was awkward.
-The Rags at 5-on-5. Where's the creativity? Zero 5-on-5 goals vs Buffalo in two games is a harbinger of bad things to come for them.
-Didn't like Ehrhoff, on the whole
-Porter's been playing well, but he was weak on the puck tonight

U:
-Giving up so many chances at 5-on-4
-Hodgson missing that bunny with the Queen down and out

I'll be honest, I'm from downstate...and I love Torts. Obnoxious plays well in the NYC area. Pronger woulda been a great addition to the Rangers.

Everything was said, like the Hecht and Flynn patience with the puck when Foligno scored his 2nd, they could easily dump the puck but instead, they wait and create, that's something we need to see more often other than our 1st line !!!

The only ugly instead of our pp is that i forgot my survivor's pick

Forgot too add Corey Perry stupid elbow on Zucker, not this game but can't wait how NHL will handle that one, a lot worse than Kaleta !!!

"Would you say this was a classic Marcus Foligno game?"

Harrington to anyone he interviewed. Flynn and Rolston I know he asked for sure. I felt bad for Flynn because Harrington asked him 3 questions about Foligno.
