Sabres Were Buffalo'd By The Tards

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

The Buffalo Sabres are finding out that being President's Cup winners means absolutely nothing when the playoffs start. The Sabres lead the NHL in road wins and come from behind victories - both meant nothing last night against the SenaTards. If I had to pick one word to describe Buffalo's performance last night, it would be uninspired - the Sabres team that used team speed and sheer will to win battles with the opposition was nowhere to be found last night...they really were Lindy on the road.

Its not hard to pinpoint why Buffalo lost last night - what would proven infinitely more difficult would be to find any positives that they could take into Game 4 to spare themselves the embarassment of being swept by the Tards. The Sabres were out-skated, out-hit, out-worked and "out-everything".

The power play that was deadly during the regular season was unorganized and weak last night - Buffalo couldn't carry the puck in over the line and had to resort to dumping the puck in...the problem was that no one was chasing the puck (have we mentioned "Lindy on the road" enough lately?); the Sabres failed to register a shot on at least three of their power plays.

The Tards beat the Sabres to every single race for the puck - what I saw a lot of last night was a number of Buffalo Sabres pulling up on a race for the puck to avoid getting hit; I saw a lot of ill-advised blind passes that were a result of frustration at not being able to gain the Tards zone. There were so many bad things that the Sabres might as well mail it in on Wednesday - their performance last night was disgraceful; only the play of Ryan Miller saved them from a much worse fate.

Ducks and Wings go tonight in Anaheim and we're expecting the Ducks to steamroll the Detroit - we're looking for Anaheim to win the Stanley Cup this year.

Another good night for Dice K and the Red Sox - and a rather forgettable night for Red Sox West...why can't we beat the stinking Cardinals...why?


Red Sox P Daisuke Matsuzaka went the distance last night, limiting the Tigers to a run on six hits while striking out five.

San Diego Padres P Greg Maddux pitched a complete game last night, allowing a run on five hits while striking out five.

Washington Nationals P Jason Bergmann came close to complete game - heck he has a no-hitter in the seventh; Bergmann pitched eight and a third innings, giving up one run on two hits and a walk while striking out 10.

A tough night last night - the Braves were dominated and the A's lost by giving up two in the ninth - we start the week $255 in the red...we'll right the ship today.

Anaheim over Detroit - this one is a no-brainer; the Ducks should have won both games in Detroit. It is a case of being too big, too fast, too physical and just too much for Detroit. Lay $100 on the Ducks - $170.

Red Sox West over St. Louis - yes I know the Dodgers have all sorts of trouble with the Cards...but I'll go with Derek Lowe who has been great at home.

Oakland over Kansas City - We like Joe Kennedy tonight - A's lost a tough one yesterday, so expect them to respond. Lay $100 on the A's - $200.

That's it for today gang...have a great one peeps!


The best laid plans of the Blue Jays...

You may have problems with people who push paper today but you will excel with fast-paced individuals. Refuse to let negative attitudes stifle your plans. A business trip or conference call will bring results. 3 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps - just feels right today

Where'd You Go - Fort Minor

Where'd you go?

Seems like its been forever
Since you've been gone

Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
