How about those Buffalo Sabres, eh?  Two comeback wins in a row; two games with four goals in a row – man, I’m telling you: the Sabres better knock this crap off if they want to draft first next summer.  Seriously, though, I can live with the Sabres playing like this, even if they do still lose many, many games.

Now: onto our NHL links for today!

    Good read! Thanks! Nice Hockey Elf too!

    I read the story about the kid in TB. Talk about a GOOD read. With all the B.S. effecting people daily, its nice to see someone out there presenting a warm gesture to others. Karma is a great thing and I hope the guy whom gave the kid a puck is rewarded in some way.
