The only skating going on anywhere is indoors nowadays, with temperatures above freezing probably every day until December for most of the home cities in the NHL, which means playoff hockey is right around the corner .

What does this have to do with the Sabres in Bruins? It means that I am annoyed that Versus is still stuck on the East Coast. I knew this is what we were going to be dealing with from the outset, but that doesn't mean I don't have Bruin fatigue as we look at April coming down the pike. Even the Sabres are getting a little tired. On the other hand, I was just reminded the other day that the Ducks still exist, and that's only because I'm going to Anaheim this coming weekend. Anyways, let's recycle this same tired drinking game, shall we?
... if DAniel Paille still has lingering resentment for is trade from Buffalo.
... if you think you hear a foreign language. Double if it turns out to be a thick Southie accent.

.... if you think Andrej Sekera has one too many letters on his first name and one two few on his last.
Drinking player of the week.... Blake Wheeler
