Much better

by Anne

I must confess that I picked coffee with friends over watching the Sabres game last night. Based on the updates I got on Twitter, I gather it was kind of a snoozer.

However, snoozer or thriller, the Sabres kicked off their roadtrip strong with the all-important two points! Granted, they gave Atlanta one point, but that is of no consequence at the moment.

I may have been sad to see that Matt Ellis was scratched in favor of Pat Kaleta, however, I am pumped that Kaleta scored and I have yet to watch the replay to see if he did his obnoxious "roll the dice" celebration he does just to spite me.

Upon further review it appears that yes, yes he did:

The adapter for my laptop broke leaving my laptop powerless until just now when I bought a new one so I have some serious highlight catching up to do.

Those Sabres are just so darn cute and thoughtful, winning games and such and having such a massive lead in the division. They're so sweet. :)

I managed to watch a little bit of the Kings game which they won 4-0 over the Ducks! Woooo! They're now 11-3-1 against the Pacific division this season and have a tenuous hold on eighth place. They really need to put together some more wins here so they don't make me punch them in the face as previously threatened.

Jonathan Quick improved to 4-0-0 all-time against the Ducks, earned his fifth career shutout and first shutout of the season! Yay Quickie!

Bobby Ryan, Rhodes Scholar that he is, decided that with seven seconds left in the game he was going to unnecessarily pummel Oscar Moller into the boards and for his trouble received roughly 17 minutes in penalties. Idiot.

Good game, boys!

Keep it up!

Both the Sabres and the Kings  just kicked off crucial seven game stretches. The Sabres have seven straight on the road and the Kings are in the midst of seven straight at home. Including the game on January 21st which will be all at once the best and worst game ever. I'm guessing Greener will not be playing in that game :'( That is extremely disappointing to me. But his health is most important so he shouldn't rush back.

They both play tomorrow night too! Also I might have a date with a Sharks fan next week. I don't know how to feel about his allegiance. He's from California and he still likes the Sabres so I suppose I can let this slide... maybe...
