What could possibly be worse than losing your top goal scorer, the fastest to 20 goals in the league, for as much as 6 weeks? How about losing your franchise goaltender. A three point effort by Derek Roy and strong 4-2 win to pass the Rangers in the standings was severely tainted by a high ankle sprain for Ryan Miller after being run by Gomez in the third period.

For the third consecutive home game, the Sabres will be donning their third jerseys. They are 2-0 on that stretch and a miraculous 7-1 for the season in the thirds. Hopefully, they will extend that to 8-1 tonight as they finish a home-and-home against the Senators. They will do so without Vanek, Goose or Sekera, but with the addition of firecracker forward Nathan Gerbe, who was called up from Portland (actually, he just stayed at HSBC after last night's Pirates game there.)

A hard fought and well earned 3-2 win over a very good Montreal Canadiens team extended the third jersey's impressive record to 7-1 on the season. Man, that's amazing. A message from the hockey gods, perhaps?
(Note: I picked this photo in honor of my jersey and the great play Mair made to setup Paetsch for their second goal.)

The Sabres look to continue their third jersey domination, trying for 7-1 with a win tonight (hopefully, that will be the score, too, so that we can avoid any confusion in the game summary post.) It would also mark the first time that the Sabres have won two straight games since beating the Panthers on January 19th.

With the incredible (15 saves lol) effort of Ryan Miller in net, and Thomas Vanek's fourth career natural hat trick (and fourth consecutive, no less!), the Buffalo Sabres advance to 6-1 on the season in their new third jerseys. It was a great effin' game. Look for Stafford's goal to be a Top Highlight on TSN.
