Sabres. Going to the playoffs, but that slump was not so good. I read this article on the topic, and will provide for you now a fairly disturbing quote from Ryan Miller:
“It’s not panic mode,” Miller cautioned. “I don’t think it’s been terrible. It’s been less than stellar, but I don’t think it’s any reason to go change everything and start sacrificing live animals.”
I have to agree, Ryan. No reason whatsoever to start sacrificing live animals, or even dead ones for that… wait, what the hell are you talking about? To whom? What dark gods of hockey would be appeased by this nefarious act? Whatever unholy alliance you have formed with these beasts-who-are-not-of-God, I’m going to assume they would be more happy with a sacrifice of Tim Horton’s and Coffee Crisps. The Canadians I know always want my “Yankee cigarettes” — perhaps a few cartons of those would help.
