Sabres/Blues Recap

That game actually left me more underwhelmed than anything else. When a team puts up 3 goals in the first five minutes of the game and slowly lets the opponent back in to a one-goal game that is the sign of a so-so team. The first period of that game looked really good. Mair, Connolly, and Pominville all scored, Peters looked alright in his two fights and Miller let in a goal that really could not have been stopped.

Then the wheels started falling off the bus. By the end of the second, the Blues had made it a one goal game and could have brought themselves back in it with Chris Mason in goal. But Hank Tallinder scored the game winner for the Sabres to make it 4-2 and just put the game out of reach for the Blues. Hometown boy Lee Stempniak scored one in the third to make it again a one-goal game.

Miller looked alright in this game letting in a few eh goals that he usually has against him. The defense looked much better with Tallinder scoring the game winner and Connolly looked really good until Tkachuk knocked him out of the game.

The winner of the Blue Footed Booby which we haven't awarded in a very long time is Max Afinogenov though. Max reverted back to his old ways of playing really crappy hockey. He looked really out of position on the Blues second goal which then put him on the bench for the rest of the game. That sir earns you the Booby prize for the night.
