Where you get your wings: On Friday, get them in Buffalo at the HSBC around 7:30. On Saturday, lets get them in Montreal at La Cages Aux Sports after the Habs BEAT THE EVER LOVING FUCK OUT OF SOMEONE FOR CHRISSAKES GOMEZ AND GIONTA WE WANT FREE WINGS!!!! Also, RDS, CBC, yadda yadda yadda.
Hot like the Spicy Big Crunch: Oft injured Sabre centre Tim Connolly has 5 points in his last six. Diving crybaby Derek Roy leads the Sabres with 13 points in the same amount of games. Saturday's Sens feature ageless Daniel Alfredsson (11 points in 8 games) and Carrie Underwood's hubby, lucky sumbitch Mike Fisher (4 points in last 4, buried the Leafs himself on Wednesday.) Jason Spezza had a goal and three assists versus the Isle on Thursday. Sens are a hot team in general, winners of 5 of 6.
When the Habs score one goal in 120 minutes versus freaking Florida and Columbus, nobody gets Spicy Big Crunch Hot status.
Cold like your fries after walking back to your office from the food court: Uh, Giant Mexicans? Yeah. Them. Powerplay? Yep. Is everyone else getting dragged into the cold right now? Kinda. Chocula is trying to put things on the warming tray by creating a Giant Mexican Tits line (oh, the possibilities for this blog!) and giving Pleks a Danish Squid (oh, the possibilities for this blog!) At the back, Markov and soon to be overrated since everyone talks about how underrated he is Josh Gorges team up, with PFK taking his show out with Hal Gill. Oh look, ice cold Czech Spacecakes are still on the menu!
For les Sabres, Thomas Vanek must get the Gomez "he hasn't scored in two games, he's wildly overpaid!" treatment a lot. He's got company in sophomore slumping giant Tyler Myers. Sabres are the anti-Sens, losers of four straight. Sens big free-agent acquisition Sergei Gonchar is at a point per game pace but he was minus 7 before Thursday's game. Memories of his wave at Travis Moen in last year's playoffs abound. Kovy is more bad Kovy than good Kovy right now.
Tumbled around, bruised and squished like your popcorn chicken after the drive-thru kid drops your order: Habs relatively unbroken right now. Sabres emo-kid/wunderkind goalie Ryan Miller doubtful with lower body injury, and pint-sized Nathan Gerbe broke his jaw when he ran into Myer's knee in the dressing room. Sens Filip Kuba has a broken leg and Milan Michalek might be out with a knee.
Read the menu for caloric meltdown statistics here: Senators Los Cojones remains the KFC Original Recipe of Sens bloggers: consistent no matter the season, a little dangerous to your health, loaded with cholesterol, possibly better sauced - er, with sauce. Die By the Blade is the KFC Wings of Buffalo's bloggers: kinda familiar (they are an SBNation site) but just different enough to make it spicy and interesting.
Post-game heartburn recovery: In Buffalo heartburn gets washed away with a sixer of Gennesee Light and another order of wings. In Montreal it gets washed away next morning as you scrub stripper glitter off yourself in the shower. Both methods have their merits.
