Well........actually........the winning teams fans do get some great parades and parties to go to ALL SUMMER LONG!!!!

Not that I'm rubbing it in B)

OMFG!!! WE'RE TOOOMMMEEEDD!!!! AAHHH!!!! :wacko:

No need to panic Sabres Fans.

Also, this doesnt mean choke Canes fans. So dont get too cocky. Ya'll know the Isles aint winning this series. ;)

And one more thing: I dont like DiPietro at all. I think he's cocky, snooty, over-rated, and should not have been on the US olympic team....but, DAMN! That boy looks good with a playoff beard. :wub: (i couldnt resist the puck bunny moment) lol

I'm not crazy about him either, but I can respect talent and that boy had it in spades tonight.

And I don't know, Melissa. That mustache looked a little porn star to me.

Anyone see the Islanders after the game? They were hugging each other like they won the cup. Not a good attitude to take into the next game.

Probably a bit over the top, but when you factor in all the dynamics it's a little more understandable. For a team to squeak in the playoffs in a shoot-out, get its twice concussed goalie back, and take the home ice advantage away from Buffalo (temporarily at least), I say let them have their fun.

On a side note Quince, I read a great article yesterday about Chris Drury. He has always been one of my favorites, dating back to his days in Colorado but this piece is a must-read for everybody including Canes fans. It highlights his class and humility and also presents an interesting take on Buffalo and how it defines itself by sports - not to excuse the idiots that we see but it helps explain the emotional investment on the part of the good fans, like you, here and elsewhere.

Great game last night. To be honest I didn't think the Islanders could hold Buffalo off, but luckily they proved me wrong. And I agree with others, they had every right to celebreate after that win. They accomplished what they wanted, take a game in Buffalo. Now they go home with the series tied. Pressure turns to Buffalo to steal one on the Island. And besides, every team that has won, has celebrated.

And Quince, starting your excuses already are we. The refs were off last night, but for both teams. They missed blatent calls on BOTH teams. Plus, I do recall seeing Sean Hill with blood gushing from his lip, but there was no call. Refs didn't decide this game. Isles worked harder and Buffalo came out in the 1st thinking they didn't have to work as hard. Got behind early and couldn't recover. It happens.

Go Isles.

Stormrider- Thanks Stormrider, that was a great article. I've always regarded Drury, Brindamour, Sakic, Koivu and Yzerman (when he played) as the most well rounded captains in the league. If their was any captain that could lead Buffalo to their first cup, Drury is one of them.

As for the Isles celebration I remember a certain Buffalo team did the same thing in the '99 quarterfinals against Ottawa when we were the 7 seed and stole 2 games at their place. So I'll live with it.

Colesylarose- C'mon re-read my post. I wasn't making an excuse. I just said the Isles got lucky with some 3 or 4 no calls at the end because I feel if the Sabres had gotten one more power play they would have tied it. I said the Isles deserved the win and the refs didn't score three goals, the Isles did. If it were the Canes not getting those calls like we did last night you'd be kinda annoyed like me too :wacko: . I can tell the Sabres are your 30th favorite team in the NHL and you don't like our fans but, please don't assume I'm Sabres fan who cries wolf and blames the world everytime we lose a game.

The last time the Isles were an 8th seed and won game two against a 1 seed. That team went on to win the cup. The 2004 Lightning B)

My apologies, I misread your post. Your right that Buffalo is my 30th favorite team, but I do have to admit that they remind me a lot like the Canes of last year. And they are a fun team to watch.

I just think Buffalo came into this game cocky. And it happens. It happened to Carolina last season in the SCF, Game 5 OT. Canes got on the PP and thought they had the game. Well we all know what happened then. And it doesn't help that the media and everyone was predicting Buffalo to own this series and roll over the Isles. And Buffalo is a much better team than them. Buffalo just didn't come out fighting in the first like they have every game this year and got behind the 8 ball.
