First... the Sabres won last night in a commanding performance. The 7-2 win was the most goals we've scored in any game this season, and it was great to see some *other* guys score - Myers, Butler (first of the season). Great to see Thomas score again too, as I know he's been beating himself up over it lately.
We haven't lost in regulation since December 23rd! That's almost a month! :D
The Sabres are tied for FIRST PLACE in the Eastern Conference. Well-deserved, I say.
Tim Connolly is on a twelve-game point streak.
Tyler Myers leads rookies in assists, plus-minus, and ice time!
Things are going well. Anaheim will be a challenge, and so will Los Angeles, and San Jose, and Vancouver. This West Coast road trip won't be easy, that's for sure. We'll have to get used to the time change, and play the full sixty minutes, and stay disciplined like we pretty much managed to do last night.
It won't be easy, but we can do it. I'm confident in these boys.
Last, but certainly not least, today is a certain someone's birthday... a certain Austrian, perhaps? ;)
