Stars and Black Holes: Kings @ Sabres: 11-12-13
So I guess I forgot to do this one. Whoops. I used to be a mini-pack holder and one of the things I used to do with that mini-pack was buy really good seats for the game closest to my birthday in November. They have never lost that game. Even now the trend continues.
- 2008 – The Sabres chase Manny Legace with 3 goals in the first 5:18 en route to a 4-3 win.
- 2009 – The Sabres defeat a red-hot Flames team 2-1 in the shootout.
- 2010 – (My personal favorite) – The Sabres defeat the Washington Capitals 3-2 in OT on a highlight reel goal by Thomas Vanek to win their first home game of the season.
- 2011 – The Sabres defeat the Winnipeg jets 6-5 in OT on another Thomas Vanek goal.
- 2013 – The Sabres defeat the LA Kings 3-2 in the shootout despite getting wildly outshot 45-17
- Ryan Miller – Because duh.
- Cody Hodgson – Every once in a while Hodgson has an offensive tour de force game where he’s everything you want him to be.
- Matt Moulson – I guess the benching worked.
The Robert Wade Niedermayer Memorial Black Holes:
- Drew Stafford – I’m sick of these ‘gee Stafford is playing well’ nights. Whoop de do, put up points.
- Ville Leino – The same goes for this guy.
- Steve Ott – You are allowed to touch and shoot the puck. Seriously.
