Pennsylvania is bad luck

by Anne

The Sabres now 3-3-1 when they play when I'm in the state of Pennsylvania and 0-3-1 when I stay in a hotel in Pennsylvania. They are guaranteed no points when I am totally out of touch with any game they've played this season. That's actually 100% true this season: any game I haven't watched or listened to while it was going on, they've lost in regulation.

I blame this loss on me. I'm sorry guys. I can't evaluate how CRAPTASTICALLY you must've all played tonight based on my viewing, so I'll use statbits.

First, the good:

Goose: 70% face off wins, keep up those numbahs!
Roysie got a 67% win.

I honestly just stared at the Game Stats for about 3 minutes trying to find something else good to say...and I got nothin'.

That must've been a painful game.

There's so much bad, but I can sum it up best with the following:

None of the Leafs were a -.

None of the Sabres were a +.

This calls for another animal wearing glasses picture, that's how bad it was.

At least....crap, Washington won... congrats Ovie on your 60th goal! It's been, what 11 years since a player scored 60 goals? Congrats!


Ok, I can't hate them, I still love them forever. Those last 3 games were magnificent and they can't keep it up all the time but. But, but! Ugh.

I'M GOING TO BED. At least there aren't any more games while I'm in PA. OH GOD, IT'S THE SENATORS NEXT. They may not be as storm trooper like any more but they still play excellent hockey against us.

That's it! I need 2 pictures.


Ok, that helped a little.


  1. yeah tonight's game was not nearly as heinous as some but it was just.. lacking.

    They actually had decent chances and seemed to play okay (the effort was there) Toskala was very ON tonight and the Leafs defence was good.

    I dunno. It was a tough loss but much better than those games when they just sit around staring at the other team as it scores.

    and how bout those faceoffs? Yeah Royzie had a 67% winning % -- good for 18 faceoff wins out of the team's 34. Whoa.

  2. hehe! Love the animals! I tried to recap in peeps, it was a little weak.

    Have fun in PA! Are you going to a pens game?

    I usually just go to Erie. Buy lots of clothes! I love that they have no tax. Yesss!
