Daily Links for Sunday, March 14

I'm writing this from the past (yes I can totally do that) so I have no idea if the Sabres have won tonight or not. Please choose the appropriate introduction:

Win: What a great statement game for the Buffalo Sabres! The team was against the wall, but fought back thanks to two separate hat tricks from Matt Ellis and Craig Rivet! Ryan Miller was his usual stalwart self making an amazing 64 saves in his shutout victory.

Loss: Oh woe is us! The Sabres have now lost two games in a row, all but ensuring that they will not make the playoffs this year. The offense was lackluster again, the team took too many dumb penalties and Lindy's line juggling seemed to make the team worse.The team is soft, and I wish we would have traded Roy/Stafford/Connolly etc.
