Scene: Sabres bench, right before shootout
MacArthur: This is awesome. No matter how badly we play, we can’t lose.
The Kaleta!: I know! It’s like, we totally suck for two periods, Millsie keeps us in it, and then somehow the game winds up tied at the end! We rock….even when we suck!
Roy-Z: WOOOOOOOO!! I ROCK!
Staffy: We hotways hot it up by the hot of the hot. It’s a hot game, boys! Let’s go hot the shoothot.
Staffy: Just forhot it. You’re a hotiot, Roy-Z.
Roy-Z: I totally am! WOOOOO!
Mylers: So, if I get called for the shootout I’m going to do the thing where I skate up to the net, and then stop and then use my long arm to go all the way around the goalie.
Lindy: You’re not shooting, Myers.
Everyone in Buffalo: BOOOOO!
Goose, Grier, and Hecht: (chanting quietly) Please don’t make me shoot in the shootout, please don’t make me shoot in the shootout, please don’t make me shoot in the shootout…..
Tim Connolly: (visibly thinking really hard) It’s impossible for us to lose, which is weird because we were TOTALLY trying to lose tonight.
Lydman: Remember last year when it was impossible for us to win? That was lame. I like it better when it’s impossible for us to lose. (Lydman and Staffy fist bump)
Chris Butler: So, if it’s impossible for us to lose now, can I shoot in the shootout? Pleeeease, Lindy? Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease!
Lindy: IT’S NOT IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO LOSE, YOU HOTIOTS.
Ryan Miller: I’ll show YOU impossible to lose you little effers.
(Ryan Miller proceeds to let 54 Islanders score in the shootout.)
Islander win 3-2 (SO) and the Sabres learn a valuable lesson: It’s not impossible to lose. Not if Ryan Miller has anything to say about it.
