Remember a few days ago, when I shared the fact that I had barely been able to watch hockey during the Sabres four-game hiatus, and that I was excited to
see the Buffalo play the New York Rangers on Thursday night?
Well, I’m ready for another break again!
Just kidding . . . sort of.
The Sabres are in Montreal tonight to square off against the Canadiens, and it goes without saying that the Sabres have a tough task on their hands if their goal is tow win a game tonight. Montreal currently has an 18-9-3 record and 39 points, 8th-best in the NHL; meanwhile, at the rate the Sabres are going, they won’t hit 18 wins or 39 points by the end of the season. I might be exaggerating a little – but just a little. Even when the Sabre s play well, it is abundantly clear that they don’t have enough talent to win games in the NHL night in and night out. Remain competitive, yes; win, not so much.
But we here at Sabre Noise will not be beaten down! Personally, I strive to remain positive even if the Sabres are destined to complete the worst seasoon in the NHL history! Let’s discuss:
1. Uh, anyone score for Buffalo tonight?
2. How long will I last before I either fall asleep or begin searching for anything remotely interesting to watch? I mean, I almost watched The Sound of Music Thursday, for goodness sake!
Lemme hear ya!!!!!!!!!!
