I'm a Bad Fan and Something Ottawa and Buffalo Fans Can Do Together

by Anne

The Sabres lost to the Senators as I knew they would. They have yet to walk away with four points from back to back weekend games this entire season. At least the two points went to Ottawa and not, like, Florida.

Fortunately, my secondary and tertiary teams managed to pull through and come up with victories against higher ranked opponents to salvage my Saturday. Granted, with the Kings, there are only two teams ranked lower in their conference.

The Kings took on the Wild in a matinee which they won 4-3. Greener had an assist, giving him 11 assists and 12 points this year. I'm a bad fan because he suddenly went from having 7 assists to having 11 and I did not notice. Last week the Sabres level of FAIL reached critical mass and I was running around with duct tape and ribbon trying to put things back together. I feel shame.

Sorry, Greener

I could apparently own this card.
That would be hella weird
But thanks anyway Amanda!

The win gave the Kings a 4-0 season series sweep over the Wild. Woooo!! Its still a longshot for them to make the playoffs but everything is so close that you can't completely count them out just yet.

Saturday night after the Sabres fail of game, the Canucks hosted the Sharks and won 3-1. Yay! Big Bear had a decent game even though he was left off the score sheet. I wish he'd get a little scrappier though. Just start hitting some more things, Steve.

The Canucks have been rather less than successful against the Sharks in recent memory so this win was huge.

Ryan Kesler was on After Hours and I really really wanted to stay awake and watch it but considering it started at 1:00 am and I had been running around all day, I did not make it. Sorry Kes! Maybe the CBC video will be working tomorrow. It was out of commission when I attempted to watch it this afternoon.

Also, if you want to take a brief moment to find the positive side of Sens fans, read this letter to Derek Roy. I say we put aside our petty differences with Ottawa (what's a few Eastern Conference Finals between friends?) and join hands in proclaiming the downfall of the Montreal Canadiens. Because, frankly, don't we want them all to just shut up and go away?
