When the Sabres aren't playing, I talk about other teams, you're just going to have to cope

by Anne

On nights when the Sabres don't play, I appreciate it when my other teams win.

Last night, the Kings played a fantastic first period and then a solid start to the 2nd before they crapped the bed in the beginning of the 3rd, blew a three goal lead and allowed the Stars to tie. Fortunately, Michal Handzus said "Yo, eff this, I want these two points" and scored the OT winner 55 seconds in. Phew!

The biggest story of the night was Anze Kopitar's first career hat trick. Hooray! Confetti!

Bailey was so proud

This was Kopi's 12th career multi-goal game but his first hat trick. The Kings are 5-1 this season when Kopi scores. I like it.

In a related story, I really like the Kings third jerseys. Christmas is approaching. You do the math.

The Sabres are doing more stuff to make the players seem, I don't know, human? For example, a few weeks ago they started this new feature that, like most Sabres features, probably will happen three times and never be heard from again. For some reason I'd never seen it before. Here it is:

Good old Little Foot

  1. My favorite part of that '2 In The Box' segment? 'I gotta go.'

    I hope you get a Kings jersey for Christmas! As I have said before, those jerseys are quite flashy. (:
