Can we go two in a row?  Beating 'Peg when they're on a road trip and the tail end of a back to back is one thing.  If we can put on a another dominant performance against a class team from the east, I will then be thoroughly impressed.

They attribute the continued winning despite the rash of injuries to their organizational prospect depth as discussed here: Depth is the Difference

Should be a good home and home. They're a little banged up but still formidable and should be a good test. Not sure if we win either game but we have to play hard regardless. These guys play like the schoolyard bully so stand up boys and don't take no shite. As always , GO SABRES !

Dress Scott, and no shite will ensue. Trust me.

Seems a little ridiculous, but as long as Psycho-Chara and Co. keeps getting a free pass from Shanahan, Scott needs to dress for games like these.

I don't want to see Hodgson, Ennis or Myers take a cheapshot because someone felt like "taking the high road".

Play them hard, play them dirty if you have to - That's how they'll play you.

I agree with you 100%, but Nolan might not:

They'll likely be seeing plenty of each other in the LW vs RW matchup. Will be a good test for Gus.

Leave it to the Buffalo News to let a Boston reporter write a better story on a player from our team. How do these guys keep their jobs? I wish I would have won the Mega millions so I could have bought that rag and fired all the writers. Except a very select few.
