Fingers crossed that a year from now, we’ll still be watching the Buffalo Sabres.

For now, though, we’re still living in 2022 and the NHL’s Stanley Cup Playoffs are kicking off with 16 teams - none of which are from the 716.

With four games on Monday night, it felt appropriate to give the hockey-thirsty folks of Buffalo a place to drop their thoughts over the course of the next few days!

This will be the open thread for the whole of the First Round, full schedule below.
