Sharks went to a shootout last night against the Flyers, hopefully they're a little tired out tonite. At this point the Sabres need all the help they can get.

Need to continue piling up the points. 5 out of 6 ain't bad but they have to maintain this pace and NOT BLOW LEADS!

He would have scored 50 goals a year if he knew how to finish on breakaways. :worthy:

Mancari is back up for tonight. Hoppe says Ruff said Morrisonn has concussion symptoms and has been shut down indefinitely.

SJ also came back from 4-1 in the latter half of the third. Don't know if that means let down or momentum.

San Jose gave it everything they had in the 3rd last night so there is no way they are on top of their game tonight. I believe it's their 5th game in a row on the road. ANYTHING but 2 points in regulation is inexcusable.

Jared Boll fined $2,500 by NHL but no suspension 4 targeting Shaone Morrisonn's head in hit Friday vs. BUF

No injury = no suspension.

I hate the NHL's system of justice.

Hoppe says Ruff said Morrisonn has concussion symptoms and has been shut down indefinitely.

I suppose it's too late to revisit Boll's punishment. :wallbash:

"Things figure to be tough for the Sharks tonight, too. The Sabres own a 13-1 record at home against San Jose, their best winning percentage against any existing NHL team."

May I ask what games many years ago have to do with tonight? Kind of like the all-time overtime records they flash before playoff OTs. Meaningless.

Not a betting man, but betting on the Sabres tonight would seem like a sucker bet.

Mancari back to Buffalo as the Pirates search for answers
Published on: 9th December, 2010 by Chris Roy

After having Thursday off, the Portland Pirates were back on the ice, but without forward Mark Mancari who was recalled for the second time in as many days by the Buffalo Sabres.

Finally. FINALLY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DirecTV finished with the install. This will be the first game this season where I'll have the pleasure of watching on a screen bigger than 13.1" in the comfort of my own home.

Sabres better show up. I'm on an emotional speed boat right now. If they crash and burn I don't know how I'll cope.

HD? Surround sound?

If so, you'll be very pleased with the amount of HD hockey you get on DirecTV.

I like that most of the Sharks shots so far have been on the perimeter. We are doing a pretty good job of keeping them outisde and Miller isn't giving rebounds.

Kind of like the arena the last few years.

Here's Mike Harrington's brutally honest assessment:

End-1st: In front of a library-quiet crowd (WHAT IS UP, PEOPLE?), the Sabres have a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes as the Sharks have a 12-9 edge in shots. I really have no idea what the deal is here. This has become the quietest rink in the league, which shows the disconnect the fans have with this team just keeps growing. I couldn't hear myself think for just about the entire game Tuesday in Boston, even when the Bruins were trailing. Not the case here. And before any of you get all defensive about it, several visiting writers have brought up this topic to me this season.

Thats what happens when you put a mediocre product out there and spend the offseason trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the fans that you are truly trying to build a contender. This has worked in previous years, but it won't work forever, fans eventually get smarter and see through the bargain bin signings and get real tired of waiting for "the core" to grow up and develop into their "potential"

I'm not one of those people who's going to dispute it because I haven't been to the Arena in a couple years. A shame if true, though.

Happy this was brought up...I truly think a huge reason our crowd is so quiet is our GOD-AWFUL public address announcer. I live down in the DC area but maintain my season tickets in Buffalo. Being a teacher (with my lengthy breaks and horrific salary) see about 5 home Sabres games and 5 Caps games per year. The Caps P.A announcer is awesome! Constantly getting the crowd into the game, but not the annoying "our crowd knows nothing I need to explain the game" garbage.The Verizon Center is always rocking. Meanwhile, the Sabres P.A dude sounds like he should be DJ'n a funeral, which I guess in many ways, he is. He is just terrible, my absolute least favorite "JJJJooooooochenn Heeeeeeeeeechhhhhhhhhhhhhht". If you've ever heard him announce a Jochen goal, you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. I cringe with hatred every time.
