Jarkko Bit Me

...and that really hurt, Jarkko. And it's still hurting.

Sheesh. Biting in hockey? Give me a break. What a shit show. Ruutu is denying that he bit Peters, but I think it's pretty obvious from the replay that he indeed did bite him. Then again, I would be pretty embarrassed to admit that I bit someone too. Yikes. But let me just say, seeing Peters mouth, "He fucking bit me!" was hilarious. I was sitting there wondering what the hell happened to him and then I see him shout that and I was just like, "...what? Did he just say that Ruutu bit him?!" Good god.

Anyways, biting aside, I'm glad I can sit here and write about another Sabres victory! Talk about being on a roll, how about Matt Ellis? Another goal! Good for him. There's not a better way to start the period off than to score. I liked seeing Roy score that ugly goal. Is there anything more beautiful than scoring an ugly goal? It shows determination. I like it. It seemed that we were in for a night where the Sabres would have a comfortable lead the entire time, but as you know, not a lot of leads are safe in this league. Ryan Miller had two gaffes (and so did our defense on the second goal, giving Spezza a breakaway), and all of a sudden Ottawa is back in it. Miller seemed a little rattled after those two goals, but it was great to see his response in the third. He was very sharp and stopped all of Ottawa's 11 shots and had a huge glove save on Spezza denying him the hat-trick. Nicely done. The team as a whole seemed to have gotten back on track in the third after making some mistakes in the second and letting Ottawa creep back up. It was nice to see Rivet back out there and going after some Sens after they were getting all up in our goalie.

All in all it was a huge win for the team and it was nice to see. Earlier in the season those were the games where the Sabres would have a nice lead and then have a meltdown and lose. It's good to see them take charge after making some mistakes and ensure that they take 2 points out of the game. So the Sabres are on a nice little 3 game winning streak and they are doing all they can do at keeping themselves in a playoff spot. Pittsburgh is right at their heels for that 8th spot, but the Sabres are right behind Carolina as well for the 7th spot. There aren't many points separating the 5th-8th spots in the Conference, so things get pretty interesting around this time of the year. If the Sabres can keep this up, then it can make for some fun months ahead of us.

Oh and I just want to say how much I love Burt's Bees products. I am in love! If I could I would buy every single product that Burt's Bees makes.

I'll have to try that...but Burt's Bees is too special for me to ditch altogether! I don't just love their chapstick, but their whole line of beauty products. And it's all natural too. I love it! But I'll give Lypsyl a try.

How much is that Jarkko in the Window!!! The One with the senator's crest!!!

Marc Savard got a game for biting Darcy Tucker a few years ago. I would hope the league takes action. Peters was absolutely great in his post game. He was smart with his answers not BITING at the bait.

The use of shit show works really well here.

Oh, my mom loves Burt's Bees products!

Nice to see the boys pull out a win when they could've completely broken down after Spezza scored those two goals. Even though they were outworked for most of the second and third period, they managed to keep Ottawa at bay and the insurance goal by Vanek at the end put me more at ease. Let's hope they can keep the momentum going against the Rangers!

I was really impressed with his answers. He is sooo much smarter than people give him credit for.

And for Ruuuutuuuu to deny biting him? Why on earth would Petey make that up? And his reaction post bite... if he was faking, he is a lock for the Oscar! What a douche.

Jay said...

Maybe he should change his name to 'Sharkko Ruutu'

GRRRRR... CRUNCH!

I read on NHL.com today that Ruutuu has been summoned by the league to explain his actions. I'm glad they aren't ignoring the incident like they did when Kaleta was sucker punched by Gauthier.

Definitely. I usually describe Sabres losses as "shit shows", but every so often, even victories can be described as a shit show.

Let's hope they can keep the momentum going against the Rangers!


Can't wait for Friday! :)

Whenever I run out I can spend so much time at the Burt's Bees display in the store just marveling at all the awesome products they have. The last time I looked they had this weird hand sanitizer spray, and it smelled sooo good. Not like that weird chemical smell that most hand sanitizers smell like.
