So I had this whole thing planned out about how the Habs were cold, and Buffalo is cold, and well, it was genius let me tell you. GENIUS! So of course today it's a balmy 7 degrees Celsius in Buffalo and thus the preview idea could not be more lame. LAME I TELL YOU. So instead I present you generic preview format #1.
Waiting in line details - 7 PM start in Buffalo. Habs losers of 3 straight, Buffalo winners of 3 straight. The Habs actually won the one matchup of the year so far.
Pay your cover charge to - our old friend Dani over at Sabre Kallisions.
Hot sexy Habs to watch - (looking, looking, looking...). Actually PatCHes has a point per game over his last 4. Pleks 4 points in his last 5.
Skanky Habs to watch - many, many players.
Hot sexy Sabres to watch - Ryan Miller may be the best goalie in the NHL right now, and it's borne out by his league-leading stats - .937 save %, 1.84 GAA and three SO. Up front the usual suspects - Roy, Pominville, Hecht - all seem to be playing well. Good solid group of D as well. Face it, Buffalo is a decent team.
Skanky Sabres to watch - unless backup goalie Patrick Lalime plays (a real possibility given the state of Buffalo's opponent), no one really.
On the main stage - we have a return! Big Tits is a go for tonight. That gives you the following lines:
If Pyatt and White are really our second line forwards now, first kill me, but then we need some nicknames for them. We have more lineup news too, as Jaro will get the start. Also, Gill is good to go, but he's going no further than the press box. For Buffalo, unfortunately for the huge contingent of Craig Rivet fans out there, he's injured.
In the VIP Room - Habs PP 24th in the league, while Buffalo's PK is the best. Buffalo leads the league in goals against. A perfect recipe for breaking out of our offensive slump!
Post-game adult entertainment establishment - you should see the skanks at Mademoiselle Buffalo. AND it's near the airport. If that ain't a recipe for a good time, I don't know what is.
