I want energy. I want hitting. I want the Sabres to regret they caught their plane. I want a BIG win.

That is all.

Is Biron taking this back-to-backer or is Nitty coming in?

I want them to come out like they did last night and pull out a qin. I'm still waiting for some indication of an identity, but I guess we all are.

Here's to righting the ship and turning things around. (Hopefully.)

Minor correction to the sabres lines for you: Mair's on the fourth line, Paille's on the 2nd line. Hecht centers Paille and Pominville.

Good luck. I have to miss this thing!

Richards got checked into the bench (by Vanek I think) and his stick came up and whacked Thibault pretty good in the face.

Im going to the game with my brother....last game he went to was the Pittsburgh game where we slaughtered the penguins like baby seals.

The last game I went to unfortunately was the Dallas Game. Here's hoping we meet in the middle and pull it out.


By the way ill give Brian Campbell his props, after the game he apologized to Upshall for the hit...good move, even though its just protecting your own ass because you know were gonna come out swingin at folks heads tonight with baseball bats.

So what.

Fowards and Defensemen play with broken noses all the time and they don't have a huge goalie mask on like Thibault will.

I was sooo impressed by that out of our little midget last night. I really hope he pots a couple tonight, less special team play and I think he may. I also really hope someone puts a beat down on Spacek.

Spacek really came out of nowhere last night and played a great game. Before I didn't even notice him but now I can't stand the sight of his pudgy face. Put him through the wall, boys.

I thought i saw it last night, but didnt say anything because i thought i saw it wrong. Watch TSN.ca's highlights of the game last night. Afiniginov slew foots Upshall in front of the net, then in a motion VERY similar to Simon's of the other night attempts to stomp on Upshall with his foot

I coulda sworn it looked like Max was kicking at Upshall last night, but i didn't see a single replay so i thought i may have seen something wrong. After seeing that replay, i am truly disgusted. Not even a penalty on a clear slew foot, and then an attempt to kick him when he's down on the ice. The league won't do **** either... although im surprised TSN took the time to show that.

Afiniginov needs to eat some ice tonight. If the Flyers don't drop the hammer on Spacek and Max tonight, i'm going to be furious. I'm already pretty pissed off from watching that clip and not seeing someone make Max pay the price right after. Disgusting.

Hartnell made Afino make out the the bench earlier in that game.

My girlfriend got tickets to the game for my birthday! I'll be sitting in 212. Hope it's as good as a game as last night with the opposite results.

All the Sabres should be eating the ice tonight. Hard hitting, make them take some more stupid penalties. Come on boys. We had that game last night and yet again we let it slip away. Time to put the hammer down!!!!!!!!!
