From the Fanside of Steve Petty
The Sabres had a difficult weekend against two strong opponents in the Northeast Division. The Sabres dropped a 2-1 decision in OT to the visiting Boston Bruins on Friday night as Thomas Vanek scored the lone goal for Buffalo. The follwing night, the Sabres went off to Ottawa for a battle with the Senators and the Sens took care of business, defeating Buffalo 5-3. Next game for Buffalo will be on Wednesday night as they head down to our nations capital and take on the Washington Capitals. Next home game will be on Saturday as they take on Oswego native Erik Cole and the Carolina Hurricanes.
Down the road in Rochester, the Amerks came off of a Keaton Ellerby Hat Trick on Friday night as they defeated their Thruway rival Syracuse Crunch by the score of 5-2. Next game for the first place Amerks will be on Tuesday night as they take on the Hamilton Bulldogs at Copps Colliseum. Friday night, they return to the friendly confines of the Blue Cross Arena for a showdown with the Wilkes-Barre Penguins at 7:05.
Thats it for the first installment of the Fanside with Steve Petty. I hope you had fun enjoying the first of what will be many installments.
