  1. "He looks like a bulldog eating his lunch off a thistle". Common, seriously. What does that even mean? That's hilarious. I remember other Robyisms like "he's hanging around the net like dirty socks." That is old school stuff. Grass roots movement to bring him back, even for a game or two a year. What say you.
  2. We play the New York Rangers tonight. The Rangers are bad. They have an expected goals for at 5v5 of 1.8 compared to Buffalo's 3.1. Further our PP is 10% better than theirs and Rangers seem to top out at 2 goals a game. These are trap games for top teams but games if we truly are a top team we should win. Records Rangers: 2-4-1 Sabres: 8-1-1 Fancy stats: Rangers: 2.71 goals for, 1.8 xGF, 0.913sv%, 44.4cf% @5v5, 20.83pp%, 77.42pk% Sabres: 3.70 goals for, 3.1 xGF, 0.929sv%, 47.5cf% @5v5, 30.77pp%, 76.67pk%
  3. Game 2: Home opener.... here we go! Is Ralph Krueger magic? Find out tonight. The KBC should be rockin', giving the Sabres a boost. Hopefully McCabe turns in another great performance. This could be Jack's breakout; let's see Skinner get on the scoresheet too. GO SABRES
  4. “Anytime that you put on an NHL sweater, put on a Sabres sweater, you better play with some pride otherwise you shouldn’t ***** be here. I don’t believe that, that we’ve lost that, and if guys have, then they shouldn’t be here." "We can play spoiler, we can play whatever you want to call it, but this is about pride. This is about playing for the logo, playing for the guy next to you."
  5. Dear NHL, THIS GAME SHOULD BE TAKING PLACE IN QUÉBEC CITY!! Much Love, NS ****** These teams are pretty much mirror images of each other, at least in the standings. I predict that this will be the first 0 - 0 tie after all the nonsense of OT and, especially, that darn SO. Eliminate the SO and OT while you`re at it, or give me death. Paging @biodork and any others out there ... are any going to attend this afternoon delight? What a cray game time. Set your watches ... 3:08(ish) puck drop. Oh, yeah /// MUST WIN!! GO SABRES!!
  6. Brandon Montour suits up for the Sabres for the first time against the Wayne Simmonds-less Flyers. Philly is coming off of a big comeback win against Pittsburgh in the outdoor game on Saturday while Buffalo is coming off of last nights loss to the Leafs.

  7. Blow Leafs Blow! From the Game Notes… This is the second of four meetings between the Sabres and Maple Leafs this season. Last meeting: Toronto defeated Buffalo 4-3 (OT) in Buffalo on Dec. 4, 2018 Next meeting: Saturday, March 2 in Toronto Jack Eichel has totaled 13 points (8+5) in 10 career games against Toronto, including six (3+3) in five road games. Sam Reinhart has recorded 13 points (5+8) in his last 13 games against the Maple Leafs, including at least a point in seven of the last eight meetings. Carter Hutton is 3-0-0 against Toronto in his career with a .930 save percentage and a 1.99 goals-against average. Jason Pominville (3+2) and Jeff Skinner (1+4) each enter tonight's game on four-game point streaks against the Maple Leafs. Rasmus Ristolainen has recorded six assists in his last five games against Toronto. The Sabres have allowed just one power-play goal in their last seven games, going 11-for-12 on the penalty kill (91.7%) during that stretch. Today's game opens up Buffalo's 12th of 16 sets of back-to-back games this season, which continues tomorrow night at Philadelphia. The Sabres are 6-4-1 in the first game of back-to-back sets and 5-4-2 in the second game so far this season. Buffalo's point breakdown in their previous back-to-back sets is: four points (3), three points (1), two points (4), one point (2) and zero points (1).
  8. It's a 1 p.m. faceoff today as the Sabres play host to the Washington Capitals at KeyBank Center.
  9. Stop with the stupid faceoff time crap. The game broadcast starts at 730 if you don't understand that the puck doesn't get dropped until 8 minutes later that's your fault. The Sabres take on the Lightning in Tampa. The Lightning are the best team in the NHL. They are 17 points above the 2nd best team in the NHL. They play fast and hard. They generate shots and they defend well. They have good goaltending. To win this team is going to have to do something that haven't in months, show up for 3 periods and actually stick to the game plan. And no I don't care we started the thread before tomorrow because... NSFW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY0L-bcncXA Liger, out.
  10. What the heck is with this stupid start time? Maybe a change of scenery will help the Sabres? Does anyone really care anymore? I DO!! Another meaningful game just past mid-February. It has been at least 5 years since that was a thing. MUST WIN!! GO SABRES!!
  11. The time for fancystats is over. Tis the season to just win, baby!
  12. Ok folks here we go! Our Sabres get ready to clip the Jets’ wings and ground them. Below is excerpts from the Winnipeg Sun and I thought it would be fun to see it from another perspective. Mr. Laine meet Mr. McCabe. Oh you’ve already met. Must have been a smashing conversation. THE BIG MATCHUP Jacob Trouba and Josh Morrissey vs. Jeff Skinner The future of the Sabres’ top goal-scorer remains a question mark, with Skinner set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. However, what’s not a question is that Skinner remains one of the top goal-scorers in the NHL (33) and he will garner plenty of attention from the Jets’ top pairing of Trouba and Morrissey.

  13. Hide your wives, daughters, and girlfriends as Mr. No Means Yes and the Blackhawks come to Buffalo to take on our Sabres. Game starts at 7:00PM by which time the Me Too crowd should be in full swing. The Hawks are lighting up the West in 14th place and boasting an 18-24-9 record, 8-14-3 on the road. The Sabres sit at 9th in the East with a 25-16-9 record (Deluca .500?). Sabres are 14-6-3 at home so checking my advanced stats it looks like they have a better chance at wining this one. I think we all hope for Linus to get the start tonight but Phil is like a box of chocolates. For the bad guys Crawford is injured I believe. This leaves either Ward with a 3.87 GAA and .888 SV% or Delia with a 3.00 GAA and .923 SV%. Linus by the way has a 2.83 GAA and Hutton has a 2.79 GAA. The Hawks have a -34 goal differential compared to the Sabres -4. Good luck to those brave souls in that WNY weather who are at the game. May you get a taste of heaven while literally sitting in hell frozen over.

  14. So I'll be at the game. If you're going to be too, look for the DFW Bills Backers group before the game at Valor Bar & Burgers in the arena. I'll be wearing a Reinhart jersey and my name is Paul. Come say hi.
