A win for upl ~ 0.941 save %. Goal and assist for Thompson too. Taylor leier seems to be playing well too. 2 goals and an assist tonight.

Nice, great confidence builder. They know he can go in if needed.

Let the concept of UPL begin......

#AHL goaltending history..

Patrick Roy turned pro in 1985 at age 19, played 1 regular season game. Lead the Sherbrooke Canadiens to a Calder Cup win.

Carey Price turned pro in 2007 at age 19, played 2 regular season games. Lead the Hamilton Bulldogs to a Calder Cup win.

Ken Dryden, leaves College, plays 6 regular season games with Montreal, leads then to the Cup, wins Conn Smythe and then wins Calder following year.

Only player ever to win the playoff MVP before winning rookie of the year. 

I know, it’s different, still amazes me.

I’m not expecting UPL to be a regular in buffalo for at least two full season but damn it would be amazing if he turns into a top end goalie in the bigs.  I still have hope for Ullmark but this team needs a good, undesputed number one badly.

He did play a year with their national team before that year in the minors and the leap into the playoffs. But either way, very impressive (and that undefeated season with Cornell). Why am I thinking that there was another goalie with a similar start, but with a slightly less successful ending?

I still say if he outshines Hutton and Ullmark in camp he will get his shot.

True. 

But he won’t so he won’t. At least not in the 2019-2020 season. Unless an injury happens to one of them.

Just bought the AHL playoff package.  Need to see Sabres related playoff hockey and my kids bought me an Amerks jersey for Xmas. 

Anyone have any idea if I can start watching the stream from the beginning at any time?

Good lord.  It’s difficult enough figuring the number for the sabres.  No chance I know Americans numbers.

Why no Nylander?

Hasn’t played since he got that leg cut with the Sabres. Not sure if he’s even skated.

The initial prognosis was he’d be ready for the playoffs. Haven’t heard anything since.

EDIT: seeing on Twitter he’s day to day still. And Fitzgerald has gone back to college to finish up a few things, but he will return.

Has anyone actually seen Nylander recently with both of his legs?

Blown opportunity in Game 1 vs the Marlies. Lose 4-3 after coming back to tie from 3-1 down in the 3rd.

I’m terribly confused by this....

If so, perhaps you'll buy the Sabres and spare roughly 30% of Sabrespacers their apparent misery?

So am I apparently. 1) I could have sworn the playoffs started Wednesday. 2) I googled "Marlies Amerks Game 1."  3) A video popped up that I thought was  yesterday's game 1.

I guess I'm happy they aren't down 0-1
