I believe my exact words yesterday were,
If the Sabres win tomorrow in regulation I MIGHT allow a smidgen of hope back into my heart (maybe).
As I’m sure you know, they did NOT win in regulation, but damned if that little tickle I feel deep in my chest isn’t a tiny smidgen of hope.
I was at work tonight, so I had my usual work-night view of the game (saw almost all of the 1st period, and a few minutes of the 3rd), but I have to admit, I’m loving this little end of the season surge. Sure, it’s nearly hopeless, but it’s also nearly fun. If these last seven games are the closest we’ll get to a playoff vibe, well, I recommend we take what we can get.
I can’t believe Toni Lydman was a hero while I was at work.
