I know I haven’t been paying a lot of attention to you recently, so maybe I’ve lost some authority with you, but I URGE you to listen to me now.
Are you listening?
Pommers? Are you listening?
Now listen carefully…..
I cannot help but notice that you are scheduled to play the Lightning Bolts tonight. Do NOT underestimate the Lightning Bolts.
I was recently in Tampa where I saw the Lightning Bolts play the Penguins, and while the Pens won the game, the Lightning Bolts did not go down without a fight. They were surprisingly feisty actually. The Lightning Bolts skated around, and hit the Pens, and generally acted like they intended to win the game. The Lightning Bolts were especially good in the first period. Sabres, if the internet is to be believed, the first period recently is when you like to skate around, not hit anyone, and generally act like you do NOT intend to win the game.
If you’re not careful, the Lightning Bolts will be up 10,000-1 in the first period. That is not a situation that anyone is in the mood to see.
It is my recommendation that you 1. Do NOT take the Lightning Bolts lightly, and 2. Attempt to win from the very beginning of the game.
I know you can do it.
Good luck tonight,
