Listening to Game 2 of the Sabres-Flyers series (I’m emotionally invested now, after watching that amazing Game 1 in Buffalo) on WGR 550 over the Internet, and so far, it’s a slaughter: 4-0 Sabres, less than 10 minutes into the game! Woohoo!
You wonder if this is one of those situations, like the ALCS last year, where a really close game early in the series causes such a huge momentum swing that the winning team ends up running away with the series. Buffalo fans can hope so, anyway. (Knock on wood!)
On a related note, this audio clip is funny.
UPDATE: Buffalo scores again! 5-0 at the end of the first period. Heh.
UPDATE 2: Our resident Buffalonians will no doubt appreciate this audio clip of Rick Jeanneret’s goal calls from the first period:
Incidentally, it’s 6-1 now.
The rest of the Philadelphia Flyers know exactly how rookie R.J. Umberger felt after they, too, where flattened by the Buffalo Sabres.
Heh. Game 3 is Wednesday night in Philadelphia.
