TAKING A BITE OUT OF THE SHARKS

(Anne, that title is for you, by the way.)

So I had this whole big spiel I was going to go through about how much a Sabres' win would mean to this city, but right now, I'm ecstatic.

My emotions have been running on low for the past 24 hours, and to be honest, I didn't think I could feel much worse after learning about the crash of Flight 3407.

But, wow. Just, wow.

This game was absolutely fantastic!!!

I don't really have a ton of coherant thoughts for the game, but, rather, just some quips:

- Derek Roy is incredibly attractive when he's being all feisty and starting trouble with the other players and mouthing off. idk why, but he is.

- Derek also scored his 100th career goal, on the same goal that Drew Stafford notched his 100th career point. Who gets to keep the puck? I think Roy should get it... Goals are cooler than points.

- It's about time Jason Pominville nets a goal! I really think this is where he'll turn it around... And that shootout goal he had was mighty fine.

- Nathan Gerbe's play has been nothing short of foxy since he stepped foot on the ice at HSBC Arena, the Portland game included. I'm so glad he's in the blue and gold. I can't tell you how many times tonight I was wowed by his effort, his determination, and his heart. And when he had that knee-on-knee scare in overtime, I think I almost died a bit.

- Craig Rivet is my new hero. I don't care what Derek says, and I don't care about the age difference; I love him. He was just way too cute when he and the other guys were jumping around after Pommer's goal. I just love him.

- Roy had an adorable little fist pump... thing... after his shootout goal.

- I honestly thought Danny Paille scored Spacek's goal, and I really wish that he had. He did play very well, though, in his first game back, in my opinion at least.

- Did I mention that we beat the San Jose Sharks, arguably the best team in the league?

- Did I also mention that we, who are in 8th place in the East, are 2 points behind the Rangers, who are in 4th place in the East? Oh, and also that we've played them twice thus far this season, and we won both of those games?

- Looks like Lindy's method of working the power play all practice long yesterday payed off, as we went 3-for-6? As in 50%?? Let's do that more often, okay boys?

- I seem to like to refer to the Sabres as "we." Like I'm part of the team. Sweet.

- I saw Caroline (of Hockey Night in Buffalo) on TV after Pominville's game-tying goal!!

- I'm really, really, really happy about this win.

Okay. I'm going to watch Friday Night Lights (don't judge me), and go to bed, as I'm working alllll day tomorrow, 7 am to 11:30 pm. Woo. Exciting stuff.

Happy Valentine's Day friends, and same to the Sabres. =]

Thanks for the title! haha.

Crazy circumstances or not, that game was a huge win for the team and the city. Awww. Lookit 'em being all clutch and scrappy and not just rolling over and letting the game slip away.

Great post.

Sidenote: I thought the same exact thing about Roy's fist twirl thingy. Or whatever you call it.

When I read your title the first thing I thought was, "Anne's gonna love that." haha.

Everyone is saying that they saw me! I wish I had recorded the game so I could rewind it and see myself.

My mom, brother, and I were cheering so loud, I think we could've woken whoever was sleeping in Kenmore.

And I just love how they were beating each other up at the end... DON'T THEY KNOW THEY CAN CAUSE BODILY HARM BY PUNCHING EACH OTHER??!!?!

What the heck was that thing anyways?

I was all like, "Hey! That's Caroline!" I was all excited because I never see anyone I know on TV from the Sabres game... When I sat in the front row behind the net at a Tampa game back in January, my aunt and a bunch of other people saw me on the Buffalo broadcast, and my dad and uncle saw me on the Tampa broadcast while they were down there visiting my grandma, so that was pretty cool.

See I'm not even going to offended because it's people like you who ruin blogging for others. This is our blog and frankly the fact that you were too chicken to actually make an account or leave your name shows me exactly how small minded you are. You don't have to read our blog no one's holding a gun to your head so please in the future if you want to call us jersey chasers keep the sentiment to yourself and stop wasting your time and ours. If you don't like what we have to say don't read it, it's as simple as that.
