I just looked at this thread and thought, "wait, aren't they playing on Friday?" 

Yeah, it's been one of those weeks.

With all the great chances the Amerks had, Mersch ties it at 1 on a poor angle shot off the goalie's stick.

Peterka had shot wide on a breakaway.  Weisback did likewise on 4v4 & then Peterka hit a post on a 2v2 rush as the 4v4 expired all to no avail.  Then Mersch throws junk to the net that strikes gold.

That sequence before the goal from JJ was something sorely lacking from the Sabres and a really impressive part of his game imo.

Backchecks, steals(hooks?), retrieves and counters resulting in a drive into the offensive zone and a crazy looking shot the goalie was forced to save with a man crashing the front of the net. 

I really hope he continues his style of play in the league because he will bring the fans out of their seats nightly.

If he keeps skating like his hair's on fire, he'll be entertaining next season.

But he still needs to be better overall in his own end.  Could see him starting out next year in the A to work further on that part of his game.

 

And just now saw how poorly Laaksonen played the Crunch goal to open the scoring.

He really has a ways to go to get to the show.

Per Duff, Amerks 1st win this season scoring fewer than 4 goals.

And it took the gift puck over the glass call to get the chance for the winner.

Robson playing at an AHL level in goal helped too.

Except for that Charlotte game right when the Sabres got Subban, he's played very well.  (Guess there was 1 other not so good game too.  Didn't see that one.)  Wondering if his mind was thinking about how that was likely going to be his last game as Dell was soon to come back down & the emotion of the situation just caused everything to snowball.

There was a small crew of young adults behind us tonight. Very vocal. Hootin’, hollerin’ and having a good time.

One of them kept saying “I love hockey” a lot. Probably ten times. 
 
The Amerks intern finally acknowledged them and tossed some Amerks slap bracelets up toward them.

We helped them fish them out from under the seats and they told us that the one kid was at his first hockey game. “He’s from Italy!”.

Guess I know who kept fawning over hockey. It’s extra special that they won.

Pretty entertaining first game.
