I don't have 26CB's pretty graphics or excellent links, but with less than 12 hours to go, it was time to start this.

Got tix for tonight's game, debating if I wanna go or not.... I knew we'd get a beat down last night, but I fear we will also get one tonight as well.... Especially seeing Leino on the roster and the McBain - Weber pairing on the back end

Buffalo should show better tonight.  Pittsburgh is unbelievably talented and it showed last night.

I'll have it on in the background (too much work open to sit down and focus completely on the game).

The guys have held Ovechkin in check so far, I'm thinking that may change this time around. He's just too good to keep down. Still think Sabres win!!

This is the last meeting with Washington this season. The Sabres won both of the first two meetings 2-1 in a shootout.

After tonight, we won't see Washington, Toronto, Winnipeg, Minnesota, Anaheim, Los Angeles or Columbus again.

Including tonight, five of our remaining six games before the Olympic break are our last matchups with those teams (Washington, Phoenix, Colorado, Pittsburgh, Ottawa).

Yes McBain had a crappy night last night, but I like his game.  He's usually pretty dependable in his own end, is a good puck-moving guy, is our second-best D-man on the rush next to Myers, and is a decent PP point man.  Until last night my thought is that he may be a longer term part of the team and certainly takes the pressure off the younger guys in the AHL to move up before they're ready.
