Popular Post Thorny Posted January 26 Popular Post Report Share Posted January 26 (edited) Buffalo Sabres: 25-19-3 (14-7-1 on road) Winnipeg Jets: 31-17-1 (17-6 at home) SPOTLIGHT: Rasmus Dahlin (53) and Josh Morrissey (51) enter into the game 2nd and 3rd in d-man points respectively. Battle of the Norris contenders. YOUR Buffalo Sabres visit beautiful Winnipeg to do battle with the Jets. The Sabres sit a mere 3 points back of Washington for the final playoff spot in the East, but with 3 games in hand. We control our own destiny, now, and every week we’re still in the thick of a playoff race is another week longer than we’ve been in years. In the words of Otto Octavius: “Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts.“ 2nd in the West, the arrival of new coach Rick Bowness has somewhat unexpectedly found a way to create lift for these Jets. Backstopped by a Connor Hellebuyck once again returned to Vezina form, the Jets are a tough out on any given night. Particularly at home, where they have only dropped a minuscule total of 6 games all season long. They have a very good home record. But we have a Tage. Get to their net early, get to their net often. If not, I may be subjected in arena to a chorus of “BEST TRADE EVER!” chants, the fact no component of that deal is anymore relevant to either team a minor detail to the fans of Winnipeg. The Winnipeg way. • Sabres dropped a 4-2 decision in Buffalo to the Jets on January 12, tonight completes the season series. - - - I saw Reinhart score his first career hat trick in this barn, Pat LaFontaine signed a hockey card for a star-struck kid me, during warmups, in the old barn here, and in my oldest memory from watching the Sabres live, the Jets beat Hasek on a 4 on 3 PP to lock up a win here and start off a decades long period where I never saw the Sabres quite able get it done, for even a single win live. But that’s all changed. It’s been changed for a while, actually. Hey, let’s have a good effort tonight. As always, go Sabres. Already made my selection for this one, I’m ready for us to rough these fly boys up and send ‘em back to Top Gun: Edited January 26 by Thorny 11 1 7 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
