The Hurricanes Hate Buffalo

In their first matchup, John Grahame got run out of Buffalo after giving up 8 goals in the teams 8-1 loss. Last night, Cam Ward got run out of the game giving up 4 goals in the first 8 minutes. The Sabres looked like the team that wanted the game, eventually winning 7-1. Adam Mair became the star of the game with the Gordie Howe hat trick, with two goals, assist, and fight. The team basically came out with an attitude and that attitude basically gave them the win. They frustrated the Hurricanes enough that they drew 65 minutes of penalties in the third period alone.

Going on to tonights game, that attitude needs to continue. The Bruins and Flyers are playing right now, with the Bruins up 1-0 in the first intermission. We are 2 points behind the Flyers and 3 points behind the Bruins with 2 games against the Bruins. We need to keep winning to continue to close that gap with only 10 games left on the docket. The Sabres are running into a suddenly hot Leafs that are only 5 games out of the playoff hunt. Good news is that Sundin will be out of the game tonight, but the Sabres need to keep up their intensity and pull out this game.
