4444 Sure!

My Sabres opener started off like this last night on MSG-TV:
THE SABRES MADE THEIR POINT WEDNESDAY...
SCORING SEVERAL FROM THE POINT...TO NET TWO POINTS IN THE STANDINGS.
NOW...CAN THEY GET TWO IN A ROW?
(For sure! We won Friday night 5-3 against Washington - one of just 4 games on a Friday night).

Tonight will be extra special in Buffalo as homegrown talent Patrick Kane comes to visit with the Chicago Blackhawks. He grew up
about 6 miles from the Sabres' HSBC Arena and is now producing at a point-a-game pace after being selected Number 1 in the NHL draft in June.

Can you say Rookie Of The Year? For sure!

Here is the list of rookie winners over the years. Chicago hasn't had a Rookie Of The Year since goalie Ed Bel4444 in 1990/91. It has been even longer for the Sabres: goalie Tom Barrasso won in '83/84 - a year after Chicago's Steve Larmer and a year before the legendary Mario Lemieux. This week Barrasso was promoted to goalie coach of the Carolina Hurricanes. They lost 4-3 to Calgary last night - their third straight loss...so sorry HurriCANES - NOT:)

Good luck tonight Patrick KANE!

Hey, with Christmas coming don't forget to share a candy cane...
