It's the final countdown

by Anne

Here we are, folks, the final weekend of the regular season. For the first time in two years, the Sabres season will not end after Sunday, and for the first time in 64 years, the Los Angeles Kings season will continue on as well. 

Truth be told, I became a Kings fan for the basic purpose that they were toothless and hardly ever won. They were rather harmless and didn't cause me too much anxiety. Well, fast forward two years and they're also hitching a ride to the playoffs.

I'm just not sure if I can take two teams in the playoffs. My blue and gold fingernails clearly indicate where my loyalties lie first and foremost, but this will be a mighty stressful time. When most people's evenings of Sabres playoff hockey stress have ended, mine will be only just beginning.

This weekend I'm going to grade the Sabres regular season stats like I did last season because it was lots o' fun so I'll probably start those tomorrow night after the final game.

Speaking of those blue and gold fingernails, many ladies have said they were going to do it as well, to that I say: YES PLEASE DO!! It's fun and ridiculous but also somewhat socially acceptable, just like a playoff beard.

Two more games for each team, the Kings are at home against Edmonton this afternoon and close out the season with their final game in Colorado on Sunday. The Sabres are in Ottawa (ugh) tonight and finish up tomorrow in Joisey.

Speaking of Ottawa, I get more than a slight sense of excitement over the news that Kovalev will not be playing for the next several months. Not because of anything personal about him, but because anything that screws over Ottawa is gold in my book.

Can you feel the excitement?!!
