Our favorite team to shit all over returns to Boston. We couldn’t be happier.
Bruins are currently on a four game winning streak (7-7-0); Sabres are still above the Bs in the standings though (10-5-0), though probably not for long. It took a whole month but the Bruins are finally with the intensity and confidence that Stanley Cup champions should be playing with, Since Nov. 1 the Bruins have scored 5 goals or more in every game. They’re outscoring their opponents 24-8, or 3 goals for every 1 their opponents score on them. Unreal.
Buffalo is also ona four game winning streak. Last two games they’ve scored 11 goals while letting in 6. During their win streak they’ve out scored their opponents 16- 9 and had a few OT games.
Ference has been ruled out for today’s game, so Kampfer will be in. Paille’s still out, too, for looking like Two-Face.
Follow @PhilBGG if you want to chirp a Sabres fan who won’t cry and will probably enjoy it. He’s the only Sabres fan we can say that we generally like.
After the jump we talk about Things to Look Out For, projected roster, links to live feeds and stories and game day video…
Things to Look Out For:
Ice extra slippery by the Sabres end.
Why extra slippery? Ice is already slippery, right? Of course, idiot, but it’ll be extra bad once Ryan Miller starts crying and writing bad poetry.
Also a good chance that Zdeno Chara takes Mrs. Miller out to a nice dinner again. Ryan hates that.
Patrick “Goat Fucker” Kaleta’s head
The guy’s been fucking goats so much lately that he’s started acting like them again, including munching on weeds and headbutting opponents. Good times. #ThingsTougherThanKaleta? Everything.
Why are people watching?
Team DOY will have to call the Wah-bulance for Lindy Ruff
It’s not a Sabres-Bruins game unless Lindy Ruff bitches about his panties being too tight, that his comb-over looks like ass, or the refs making good calls against his team.
Cool random story: Got this email from DOY reader Andrine B.:
You know you’ve made it when you’ve inspired a real-life copycat. His full name is Patrice Purrgeron although we call him Bergie for short. He is a 5 month old Siamese mix who is obsessed with hockey and makes his mom cringe on a nightly basis while he swats furiously at the puck on the flat screen. If he knocks that thing over, I’m screwed. I’ve got a cute picture of him watching Bergeron score a goal, let me know if you’re actually interested (and not just pissed that some chick is filling your inbox with shit about her cat). ~Andrine
