Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres

On Thursday, one of the most entertaining games in NHL this season was played.

It was just a regular inter-divisional match up between the Ottawa Senators and the Buffalo Sabres. But then, in the second period, Chris Neil nailed Chris Drury on what I think was a clean hit. Buffalo's Staffford came in to defend his former captain. Then of the ensuing, Mair took on Jason Spezza. Then, while that fight was going on, the goalies went at it. Biron and Emery both exchanged punches before Peters took on Emery. What I don't get is why no one stepped in to help Emery. With 3 more fights , all the penalties added up to 100 minutes spent in the box.

Lost in this game was the fact that Chris Drury is now out with a concussion. He leads the team in almost every offensive category including goals and points. Also lost in the mist of all the fights was that it was 6-5 game in a shootout for the Sabres.

This really was possibly the greatest game this season. So what should you do Saturday Night, well why don't you sit down and watch the rematch of the Buffalo Sabres and the Ottawa Senators.
