Sabres 4 - Penguins 3
In this topsy-turvy universe that the Penguins call Mellon Arena, several things happen:
1. Miroslav Satan morphs into Marian Hossa and only aims for the post or the organist.
2. Ruslan Fedotenko actually remembers where the net is placed on the ice and scores.
3. A rookie D is better than the vets.
4. Kris Letang gets his first goal in 98 million games.
5. And Ryan Miller is a big deal...all of a sudden.
Things we noticed while watching from D7 and at home.....
You know Vanek liked it.
-Like every Versus game, we miss Bob Errey. But at least it wasn't Joe Beninati. His 'bullseye!' gives us vag hives.
-Everyone was hitting the posts. Satan, Goligoski, Satan, Staal, oh and Satan. We couldn't stand it any more.
-The European Line had a great game. We hate calling them that cause it's pretty lame but what else can they be called? Steigerwald is a jinx anyway and any line he has a name for gets broken up in some way or another.
-If John Forslund mentioned how awesome Thomas Vanek was one more time, we may have shot our neighbor, who is some sweet old lady that bakes cookies all day.
-As usual, the Penguins make an average goaltender look amazing. Blah.
-After watching the Penguins power play, our negativity level on life went through the roof. Mike Yeo's power play is getting predictable.
-Evgeniya had nothing but awesome things to say about Ben Lovejoy but we think that her opinion is biased considering that she is in love with him.
-The only thing that helped lessen the pain of watching the Sabres celebrate like morons was Kris Letang's celebration after he scored. Bitch deserved it.
