It’s game day, Buffalo Sabres fans!
Wait – come back! We’ll win one, honest!
Has an 0-3 start ever felt as bleak as the current one we’re witnessing? Feels more like 0-30. However, I am trying to remain upbeat and positive about this year, as it promises to be a huge first step in the development of players such as Zemgus Girgensons and Rasmus Ristolainen (among others). It won’t be easy, as losing tends to take its toll on you, as does the constant harassment and cyber bullying many of us will be forced to endure.
But I will soldier on! And try to fake enthusiasm by using lots of exclamation points!
Seriously: tonight the Sabres square off against the 1-1 Tampa Bay Lightning at the First Niagara Center, in one of those games that someone has to win! I know lots of you have predictions to share about the game tonight, but here are a few thoughts to chew on in case you require inspiration:
1. Which Sabres player scores his first goal of the season tonight?
2. How many goals will the punch-less Sabres offense put up on a Lightning team not known for its defense?
3. Can the Sabres finally break through on the power play?
Let’s get the conversation started – leave your opinions to any of the questions I have posed, or just freestyle and do your own thing! I’ll try to jump in as much as I can throughout the course of the day, so enjoy, and go Sabres!
