Thank goodness the Buffalo Sabres road trip is over. Last night was probably the worst defeat the Buffalo Sabres have had in a long time, and definitely the worst they experienced on this road trip. The bad news for the Sabres however, is that five of their remaining nine games are away from First Niagara Center.

Stanley Cup Oreos? I mean seriously, my favorite cookie just got that much better. I am glad they went with the Stanley Cup as opposed to profiles shots of players. Lunchrooms around North America would be littered with the crumbs as kids played out the Stanley Cup with lineups built from Oreos. I will definitely being buying a box (or ten) of these. Unfortunately they don’t come in double stuff and will only be available in Canada. Boo. [Puck Drunk Love].
