Watching this one with nothing but Bruins fans - all good fun.
I always hope for a clean game, but if Marchand  gets leveled and DOESN'T return, that will make my day
Boston's last home game, hoping Hackett gets a W, I like the kid.

Boston still needs a win to clinch the President's Trophy - Anaheim's 3 points behind,  and they both have 2 games to play.   That means they're not gonna be taking it easy today, I predict the Bruins will be playing like they mean it.

I wish we hurt them really bad. Run Rask so he is concussed until end of playoffs.

Let them taste something from their own medicine. Send Erikson and Marchand out on stretchers too.


Ok it feels good to write stuff which never will happen. I hope we loose with some honor and do not get slaughtered.

Run rask with gerbe..... I mean, conacher..... I mean Ennis..... I mean dags.... I mean..... Oh wait, they're basically the same.

We play tough against Boston typically, however I believe the sabres have all but mailed it in... I wouldn't be surprised if Hackett leaves injured tonight and Leino goes on IR with a hang nail..... Don't poke the beahhr

Second to last GDT.  That in itself is sad, since we won't be treated to the threads made famous by 26CB ... we are not worthy.

Anyway, with last place firmly in the bag and a top 2 draft pick secured ... I so want the Sabres to chow down on some bear tonight.  Beat the chowder heads badly and that will be this teams, this seasons, cup.

GO SABRES!!

It'll be interesting how many Sabres the bruins take liberties with and get away with no response from the sabres and officials/league. Really its all become so predictable . Man up ladies.

John Vogl@BuffNewsVogl 1m

One day closer to a goal-less season for the Sabres' Ville Leino. He's a healthy scratch against Bruins today.


Maybe one of the tough guys gets in after all.

And we're only 1 game away from that $1000 prize being awarded by Trending Buffalo.   I promise if I win it, I'll spend it on a Sabrespace party at one of the bars and taverns in downtown Buffalo.

I think it's safe to say we've seen the last of Ville Leino playing in a Sabres uniform. It's clear they don't want him getting injured by the seasons end.

I wish the buyout included some sort of public flogging, it's almost criminal he gets to walk away with all that money. That man is set for life and all he had to do was get fired from his job.

I think it is time to call him a complete bust.  Strike one Mr. Murray.  So we basically gave away Miller and Ott for a throw away goalie, a bust and a pick.

I was only half joking I guess. I don't think he's a bust. But I'm not happy with him so far. At least he's not that expensive.

He's been a complete non factor since he got here.  He's oft injured too.  i have some good friends that are Blues fans.  They told me at the time he was a disappointment and were glad to get rid of him..  Cheap or not.  He's a bust in my eyes.

Stay classy Lucic..
