This team is going to give me a heart attack. Billy needs new shorts!
The Sabres went up 4-1, then let the lead slip to 4-3. Maybe it's because I'm a Buffalo fan, but I coulda sworn they were going to blow it in the last 30 seconds.
But they didn't. And they took a 2-1 series lead.
Could this be the year? Could this be the team??? Or are the ghosts of Brett Hull and Darius Kasparitis going to haunt my dreams forever? Usually my Buffalo teams have a habit of outplaying the opponent but finding a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. With this Sabres team, it's exactly the opposite. Even typing this brings out all my superstitions. I don't want to contribute to them blowing it.
But maybe, just maybe, they won't blow it.
