Hopefully the 7pm start time allowed everyone to stay up and watch the shootout, where the Sabres inexplicably made Martin Brodeur look foolish. Not that I'm complaining, mind you, it's just that somehow I thought the best goalie in the world over the last 10 years wouldn't be fooled by the Sabres unbeatable "no-dekes-just-shoot" strategy. But hey, I guess it's about time we won a shootout anyway, so let's not look a gift horse in the mouth. After the break: without hyperbole, there is a video that may actually be the best thing ever. WATCH IT.
