Thank GOD

by Anne

Phew. What a relief.

I'm tired so I will write a handy dandy bulleted list for the Sabres:

  • Gerbe and Staffy each had 4 shots on goal
  • Staffy had 3 points(1+2)
  • Staffy played by far his best game of the season. The Pittsburgh game was previously his best, but this one has taken its place
  • For some reason on the Boxscore, Gerbe is listed first even though its organized by number and he wore 42...?
  • Jochen Hecht fought Vinny Lecavalier and kind of won
  • If you watch the video, you can see Steve Downie mouth "help me" to a ref when he and Adam Mair were do-si-doing in their fight. In his defense, Mairsy was pummeling him (HA!)
  • Andrej Sekera was fired for a few minutes when his stick deflected the puck just enough so Millsy's glove was like 2 inches too low to stop it but would've been fine if his stick weren't there
  • Watching Goose, Hank and Staffy smash Gerbe into the glass in celebration was awesome
  • Goose also gave Gerbe lots of pats on the head in the post game lovefest
  • Miller looked good most of the night
  • Our power play didn't muster a single shot on goal for at least the first two power plays, but possibly longer, I basically stopped watching when we had the man advantage
  • Gerbe had an awesome no-look backhand shot on net that Mike Smith was not prepared for and almost bounced over his pad and in
  • MK and I were bored so we made a Nathan Gerbe Mii on Wii. There's also a Lindy one
  • Because MK declared Staffy looks like a brontosaurus, she's decided to take the nickname one step further and call him "Littlefoot" I could not approve of this nick name more
  • Vanek and Jeff Carter are still duking it out for the goal scoring lead
  • Our penalty kill was perfect again and improves the streak to 24 PKs with no goals allowed
  • Danny Paille and Paul Ranger should consider a career in pairs figure skating:

Lovely synchronization, boys
Just work out the stick placement and you'll be pulling down 10s

Around the NHL:
  • Sharpie scored his team-leading 15th goal of the season in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Red Wings :/
  • J.P. Dumont scored the lone goal in Nashville's 1-0 win over the Wild
  • Greener had no points but had over 24 minutes of ice time. It seems to be creeping up as the season goes along. Yay!! The Kings beat the Blue Jackets 3-0
  • I love it when two of my WCBs are photographed slamming each other into the boards:

Aw, for me?
You shouldn't have.

  • Ethan Moreau is the first hockey player I've ever seen who does not answer "chicken and pasta" or "chicken and rice" or really pasta of any kind as their pre-game meal:

If you can't read it, it syas "Fish and salad. That's about it."

A good win for the Sabres, and the Pirates won as well, 5-2. Colton Fretter had a hat trick?!? Wooo! Funk was hurt after being hit from behind by the Devils' Salmonella Poisoning. Oy, the boy just got over a concussion too. Jhonas Enroth stopped 31 of 33 and improved to 8-2-2.

I really like writing posts when both of our teams win.


  1. I was waiting for Goose to pick Gerbs up from the ice and give him a bear hug. It would've been so precious.

    Vanek and Jeff Carter are still duking it out for the goal scoring lead
    I wonder who will be the first to get 20 goals?
    Oh, it's ON.

  2. OK the Mii thing is Friggen hilarious! LMAO! All of us with Wiis should make the entire roster... then when they mess us hardcore we can kick their behind in game... tee hee.

  3. If you watch the video, you can see Steve Downie mouth "help me" to a ref when he and Adam Mair were do-si-doing in their fight. In his defense, Mairsy was pummeling him (HA!)

    That was one of the highlights of the entire game for me. LOL
