I’m going to the game tonight and I’m pretty excited (despite my mild tone). I would be more excited if the Sabres were potentially separating themselves from Carolina in the standings, but nonetheless they still have the chance of taking the 8th and final spot in the playoffs.
Mainly, my real excitement comes from the fact that I’ve never seen the St. Louis Blues play. They aren’t the most exciting team or a team with the richest history, but it’s a team that we don’t get to see all the often here in Buffalo and as of right now, the Blues are in a similar position as Buffalo is in the Western Conference.
I really expect a good game and probably a low scoring one. The nice things is that I’ve gone to my fair share of hockey games, but my giddiness never changed when I get to another one. Maybe if I had season tickets my feelings would change, but there is nothing like going to a game especially one that could thrust the Sabres into the playoffs.
