Meh, great goalies have their bad moments all the time. What sets the good apart from the bad is how they rebound from it. Howie won't let that get to him. On the flip side, I've seen Price meltdown on more than one occasion after allowing a goal he should have stopped.


Well said. It's not like Howard pulled a Dan Cloutier.

Beats your scotch, old man.   :lol:


While I appreciate Zima, it does not beat a fine single malt.

Lashoff going unnoticed. better than you could say about Smith


Steady but unspectacular, exactly what you expect from a third pairing dman.

God dammit Franzen. 
 
It was a hard pass, but an NHL player has got to handle that clean. 


So you're saying the Mule is playing like ass?

I'd love to see Kindl stay on the left side and dish the puck to Ericsson for one timers on that 2nd unit.


Agreed. Not just because it keeps Sammy off the PP.

I would love to see Helm at 100% on a line with Glendenning.

Nice to see The Todd score on the power play. I had just gotten home from playing a gig in time to see the goal. I had a feeling they were going to break the 0 fer on the PP tonight. Heck, I took my breaking the E string (the largest one) on my bass during the show as an omen, and it was. \m/. :)

Keep the pedal to the metal guys.

Babcock is trolling the fanbase by keeping those two idiots together.  
 
It's clearly a bad partnership that needs changing.  


I honestly think Smith and DeKeyser would complement each other well as would Quincey and Kindl.

say what you want but alfie hustles his ass off and plays both ends very well


He can't pull the piano and play it at the same time. He needs some help.

That pass by Tatar was tape to tape, if not for McQuaid probably goes in.

Agreed. Hell of a play by McQuaid.

What a dirty comeback.  Boys battled hard to go to 2-0.  Nice to see Weiss get his 1st as a Wing.  Hope Alfie gets his 1st tomorrow.


It's nice to see them finish off the third period comeback instead of just teasing like so many times in the past. GREAT job.

starting with the 2nd unit?


Half the 1st unit was on the ice when the penalty was called. They needed to charge the batteries a bit.

Not sure Smith knew the puck was gonna bounce in front of the net.  Jimmy should have looked to see if a Sabres player was in on the forecheck and play it the other way or the other side of the player.  Jimmy should just stay in his net cause he's terrible at playing the puck.


Agreed. Smith was screwed no matter what he did there.

Can we trade Emmerton for the guy in the Southern Comfort commercials?


What about one of those "queeno" burgers from the Bud Light commercials? Lower cap hit and a freed up roster spot.

They'd better hook the PKer's up with a steak dinner. They're doing very well, but Buffalo's PP isn't exactly top notch. Take this many penalties against a high powered PP unit and it could be trouble. Still, killing off two 5 on 3's is pretty dang awesome.

BS call.  Not his fault.


Absolutely. Only reason to blame Danny is if you read a boxscore and didn't watch.

Sabres player grabs Z and trips on his stick.  Z gets the penalty.  Nice.


Brad Watson seems to be on his game..... :rolleyes:
