Season Defining Stretch?

Well if there can be a season changing/defining/defeating moment this early in the season, well the Buffalo Sabres have happened upon that stretch. 4 games, 6 nights. Boston, Pittsburgh, at Montreal, Nashville. With the team currently lacking any sort of presence or identity, this stretch surely could certainly define the way the rest of the season plays out.

Tonight though we have Boston, and although it seems we have them every other game, thus far we're 1-2 against them on the year. And here we go again, two teams headed in opposite directions, Boston winning 4 straight, Buffalo dropping 5 straight. Hell, Boston is 9-0-1 in their last 10, we're 3-8-2 in our last 13. Ugly.

ITS THE GOOOOOOOOOOALIES

Dont be surprised to see Manny Fernandez in the net again, he's already beaten us twice this year. But does it really matter, both Manny and Tim Thomas are playing leagues better than Miller and Lalime currently. I don't feel like posting stats cause they just piss me off. But here's Millers... 1-2-0. 4.34 GAA. .870 save % in the three games against the Bruins this season

THE STREAM OF CONCIOUSNESS ON TONIGHTS GAME FEATURING TWO TEAMS THAT ARE GOING IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS, ONE OF WHICH IS DEBUTING A 3RD JERSEY THE OTHER HOPES TO SHIT ON THEIR FUN

Boston Bruins

Marc Savard, fantasy hockey superstar, is the gel that holds this team together, he's more than just setting up people like he did in Hotlanta...If Milan Lucic, Shawn Thornton, and Co. weren't holding opponents accountable for their actions, would Savard have caught the injury bug already?...See that Tim Thomas stopped Miller in the hallway and said ''quit thinking,'' my thoughts exactly...I'm not sure I can write anything more about this team, they just seem to get it, they have guys that put up the points, solid goaltending, and a defense that's accountable in their own end, hence successful team...I'd usually take this time to mock someone on their team, I just can't seem to, I like Krejci, Bergeron, Savard, but I definitely don't like Phil Kessel. Fatty Phil.

Buffalo Sabres

Marc Mancari had 12 shots the last 2 games, leading the Sabres, created chances, and got chances both regular strength and PP, he plays tonight...Against a team like Bruin's, who have physically beaten up the Sabres this year, why would Lindy hint that Max would play?...Does Paestch sit again? Hank has to have gotten the point by now, let him play...We haven't lost 6 straight in regulation since 2003...We get to see the Sabres 3rds tonight, that means the one I ordered will finally ship...I don't know what else to say, it's just been hard to see this team fall apart like this.

edit:: Max and Tallinder will both be back, Paestch and Paille will sit.


PREDICTION FOR TONIGHTS GAME
I'm not predicting anything like I said. Prediction for me? Piss ass sloppy drunk.
