The Pirates Continue to be Awesome

by Anne

Unlike the Buffalo Sabres, their little brothers, the Portland Pirates, have extended their game point streak to 9 games with a 6-3 win over the Albany River Rats!

Mark Mancari scored a goal and an assist, Nathan Gerbe scored 2 goals with 6 shots. Eleven different Pirates had at least 1 point and Jhonas Enroth made 27 saves in the win. Woooo!

Nathan Gerbe has moved to within 1 goal of the AHL goal lead and Mark Mancari continues his point lead with 23.

Maa-aaaark! Come to Buffalo!!!


You can bring Gerbe Derby and TK if you're lonely!!!

I'm really looking forward to the Pirates coming to Buffalo in February. I haven't been able to find any ticket information, anyone know anything?


  1. I don't think that the Pirates have any ticket information yet on that game in February. If you happen to hear anything though, make sure to let us know! I want to go really badly and sport my Gerbe shirt.

    When i heard on the radio while coming home front he game yesterday that the Pirates won, I was like 'At least one of the teams I like won a game tonight, *cough*.' Those guys are making us proud!


    If there's one hockey player I adore more than Derek Roy at the moment, it's Mark Mancari. And I need to see his ass back in Buffalo, one way or another.

  3. Anne,
