Happy New Year’s eve, everyone!

Let me start by saying that I had a great year writing for Sabre Noise.  If 2014 is anything like 2013, I’m going to love logging into the site every day.  It has been tremendous fun getting to know so many Buffalo Sabres fans through the comments and Tweets I get because of my writing, and I am always trying to find better ways to keep you all informed and entertained. You guys and gals are an intelligent, passionate bunch, and it’s my pleasure to bring you news and my opinions on all things Sabres!

Cripes, it’s starting to feel like an estrogen festival up in here!  Knock that crap off, Rich, and get to the hockey!

The last time the Sabres played the Jets, they left the ice with a 4-2 victory, one of the few times this year Buffalo has won by more than a single freaking goal.  As we all know, the Sabres are playing much better under the guidance of Ted Nolan, going 7-9-3 since he took over as interim coach.  Of course, the Sabres still rely way too much on their scintillating goalie tandem of Ryan Miller and Jhonas Enroth to save their butts – but hey!  As long as the goalies are playing hot, let’s enjoy it!

Buffalo is 13-9-5 in New Year’s Eve contests, by the way.  Just thought you should know!

Questions to consider: 

1. Matt Moulson leads all Sabres in scoring against the Jets, with 18 points (11-7) lifetime against them, and 8 points (5-3) in his last seven games against the Jets.  How many points does he get tonight?

2. If Ville Leino doesn’t score tonight, I will slow dance to Auld Lang Syne, by myself, in my bay window, wearing nothing but my boxers.  Pick which of these happens tonight.  No, I will not post photos or videos to the website!!!

3. Final score, and predict my three stars!

I’ll be handling the knee jerk reactions and the three stars, so leave your comments  down below all night long,  or throw them to me on Twitter @theamazingMrS.  I’ll be checking the site and Twitter throughout my game as I enjoy some Sabres hockey with my oldest son.  Let’s get the chatter on down below, and go Sabres!

    Bad vibes about tonight’s game. Winnipeg 4-1. Moulson scores the only Sabres goal. The Sabres 3 stars will be Moulson, Myers and Ennis.

    I have to think the Sabres won’t give up 50 SOG tonight, because that is just living dangerously. Moulson gets 2 points, Ville Leino saves my behind, and the Sabres leave town with their second-straight 4-2 win against the Jets.

    My kid just played NHL12, Sabres vs. Jets, and the Sabres won 4-3, if that means anything!!!

      Man have you noticed slappers in the game are so easy to score on. If you hold the stick for a couple seconds on the wind up and then let it go 2 out of 3 times it’s always a goal. Must aim for top corner though. Tell your kids.

  • JHizzle75

    Moulson gets a goal and a helper. Unsure if Leino is even playing. Final score 4-2 Buffalo

    • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

      Leino is in!

  • Jes

    Sabres win 3-2 (Finished with 5-1 lol)

    1. 2 points for Moulson tonight.
    2. Your dancing tonight Rich. We want proof you did this as well on second thought scratch that.
    3. 3-2 final score in favour of Sabres. Your 3 stars will be Moulson, Girgensons and Ennis.

    • JHizzle75

      I would like to see proof, myself. Just make sure we can only see you from the neck up. Lol

    • JHizzle75

      3-2????? It’s a little early for a New Years Resolution. Lol

  • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

    Scott with the first penalty of the game. Penalties are not going to help Leino score.

  • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

    Leino hit the post. FML!

    • JHizzle75

      Yeah it was a nice tip in try, too

      • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

        Right place, right time, and still no goal. Dammit!

        • Jes

          It’s getting closer to doomsday for you Rich…. BTW I’m loving our 4th line.

          • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

            I doomed myself by putting that out there! :)

          • Jes

            You lose Rich. Leino out with injury. Now get the video camera ready. Remember nothing below the waste lol…

          • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

            Injury = DQ. Bet’s off, suckers! :D

          • JHizzle75

            That’s cheating, Rich. I don’t remember that in your stipulations!

          • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

            I’m a man of my word; you’ll get your proof!

          • Jes

            Hey man that’s not fair. You can’t bring in rules when you didn’t go over them before. Common Rich you know you can’t do that lol
