For those of you that stayed up past midnight last night, you got to se the Sabres stage a furious comeback from down 4-0 only to fall short in the last 4 minutes. And let me echo D.O.'s sentiments by saying thanks to everyone who helped us post over 400 comments in the game thread, which is the most I can remember since I joined the network - it was a fun place to watch the game, so let's keep it going! Next game is Thursday.

As a Sabres fan I can't stand Alex Auld. It doesn't matter where he played, he always dominated the Sabres. I haven't looked at the schedule to see if and when the Sabres and Stars meet but I would rather see Marty Turco.
Tidbits: Statistical Milestones & Others Worth Mentioning - Canes Country
Canes Country tries to put a positive spin on what has been a disastrous season for the Hurricanes. I have to admit that I take some pleasure in seeing them fail. All the gloating about beating our battered team in 05-06 left a sour taste in my mouth. I still know the Sabres were the better team.
