Sweet, Tasty Redemption

by Anne

The Buffalo Sabres finished off their home and home (with three days in between) with the New York Islanders with a shutout victory of their own to match the one they suffered against the Islanders on Halloween

The Sabres won 3-0!
  • Most impressively Derek Roy, Tim Kennedy and Clarke MacArthur were undefeated in the playoff circle, going 21-0. Royzie went 14-0. That is totally bonkers.
  • All in all, the Sabres were 38-9 in the faceoff circle
  • Royzie also scored his first goal of the season (thank the LORD)
  • Therefore, Royzie was named the game's first star
  • Ryan Miller got a REAL shutout, not a "Ryan Miller" Shutout (see glossary). He made 24 saves.
  • Matty Ellis had 6 shots on goal, a team high.
  • For some reason, Thomas Vanek only played 11:47 yet had two points (1+1). I hope he didn't get hurt
  • Pat Kaleta decided it would be a good idea to take a totally bone-headed penalty and shove an Islander into Marty. Marty responded:

Hahahaha, Marty

Boys, boys, boys

  • Towards the end of the game, after Goose's goal was allowed, the Arena and all its inhabitants joined in a rousing chorus of "Sweet Caroline." It was fun
  • I thought there was a Kings game tonight, but I was wrong. Sad, sad times
  • The Sabres face the Flames at home on Friday. IGGY!

Hi Iggy!


Umm I looked a week too far ahead in the schedule and we actually play the Flyers on Friday. Thanks Anonymous poster! Of course I will leave this foxy picture of Iggy up here.


  1. Did someone sabotage your schedule? No kings game and the Sabres play the Flyers on Friday not the Flames, lol.
    I'm a lurker, by the way, your blog is very cute.

  2. Whoops! Thanks, I looked at next Friday instead of this Friday. Thanks for stopping by!!

  3. Boys, boys you're both pretty...

  4. that was an exciting game! I noticed that the boys were doing quite well in faceoffs (something Goose usually does but Royzie does not) but I forgot to check the stat page.. impressive! :)

    I'll be at the game tonight with my other young nephew, depending on time, we will probably visit you for some cotton candy. :)
