Martin Luther King Day.
Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but I spent my Martin Luther King day watching the Buffalo/Boston game this afternoon, judging the Buffalo Sabres not by the color of their jerseys, but the content of their character. Thanks to worth1000.com for the pic. The Sabres played a good game, but the Bruins edged them in the shootout, only after holding them at bay by hitting them CONSTANTLY.
I think that's the only way to beat the Sabres, just keep on forechecking and hitting them before they can get any speed going. Oh, and just to be safe, it can't hurt to score seven goals.
The fact that I still haven't been asked to become an NHL coach is amazing to me.
Oh, and if you haven't seen Ryan Miller's save on the 3 on 1 play yet- well, wait, because you're going to.
If you even think about watching the All Star Game, that save is going to be the headliner of his highlight reel.
Just to put it in perspective, it's better than this one:
Of course, the clip of the save he made this afternoon didn't include someone screaming "Holy Macinaw," which evens the scales a bit.
But even more miraculous than Miller's save?
The fact that the Bruins didn't blow it in the 3rd period.
Oh, and as a side note, I caught some of the Sharks dominating the Colorado Avs in the late game. With Stevie Y gone, all hockey fans should be doing their best to appreciate Joe Sakic, who won't be around forever, but ripped off a great goal with that classic wrist shot of his like it was 1993.
