Sabres win in OT, 7-6

It is hard to imagine anyone in either Buffalo/Western New York or Ottawa/Eastern Ontario who is unaware of the results of last night's first game of Round 2 of the NHL playoff series between the Sabres and the Senators, but just in case, the Buffalo Sabres came back repeatedly and eventually beat the Senators in overtime, 7-6.
To say Val and I are thrilled would be a major understatement; we sure did a lot of screaming, yelling and cheering last night during and after the game, and we also did some blog reading, mainly between periods, at, something we don't normally do during games.
While we mainly enjoyed the CBC Hockey Night in Canada broadcast of the game (we didn't check out OLN after their pre-game show until after the game had ended), I had a few problems with some comments, not because they were anti-Buffalo (the Sabres were allegedly on their heels and lost after giving up a power play goal that started with a two-man advantage for Ottawa), and Val smartly pointed out that the announcers made way too may identification mistakes with the players, and even one with the coaches. We were also curious of Rick Jeanerette's call of the winning goal by Chris Drury. Well, if you want to hear it, check out Brendan and Becky's blog at Irish Trojan.
I hope we all realize how tough the wait until Monday night will be.
