Things That Make Me Happy...

Thomas Vanek. Thomas Vanek on the PP. Thomas Vanek on the PK. Thomas Vanek on pace to now score 136.67 (ish) goals this season.

Beating the Rangers. Beating the Rangers in New York. Beating the Rangers to hand them their first loss and get Lindy's 400th win. Beating the Rangers at their own defensive game.

Watching Thomas Vanek beat Chris Drury to seal the game and hearing him specifically mention that in his postgame interview. Watching Chris Drury lose to the boys he left behind.

Seeing the desire and effort in this team so far this season and having the feeling it's not going to let up any time soon.

My Unsung Hero of the Game goes to Lindy Ruff. Many congratulations on your 400th win and even more congratulations for getting everyone to buy into team defense this year. I honestly was ready to see us lose this one, and I am so proud that they proved me (and pretty much everyone else) wrong.


More to come when I'm not falling asleep at the keyboard.

I was telling my parents when it popped up on the screen 'One more win until 400' that the boys needed to win this one for Lindy, and they pulled through! I'm so happy for him. (:

I couldn't agree more, Shelby! Lindy may be my favorite all-time Sabre because he represents everything that Buffalo is all about.
