Vulgar Opinions: Sabres @ Lightning (2-26-13) Stars and Black Holes

02/26/13

Sabres lose by negative one to Lightning.

Stars:

  1. Thomas Vanek - Back on the scoresheet with two assists and a +2.  Another icetime issue, are we sure Jason Pominville is the guy we want playing an entire powerplay?
  2. Ryan Miller - Today he wasn’t acrobatic-good, just plain good, which is better anyways.
  3. Tyler Myers - Hopes for the umpteenth time Myers has rounded a corner…

Unsung Hero:

  • Robyn Regehr - I love giving shout outs to defensemen who lead the team in minutes without being noticed.  24:07
  • Andrej Sekera – Watch him play man on some of the NHL’s shiftiest players.  His positional game leaves a lot to be desired, but man-to-man he might be one of the best defensemen in the NHL.

Black Holes:

  1. Drew Stafford - Do something Drew.  Do something.
  2. Marcus Foligno - See above.
  3. Tyler Ennis and Steve Ott – I liked how the Stamkos goal featured two guys back that have played center, and neither one of them knew who to pick up.

Unseen Goat:

  • None.

    The famous “Do something, Drew. Do something” is back!

    I’m a game away from naming that black hole in honor of Rob Niedermayer.
