backs against the wall

i'm gonna cry.

i just can't figure out why this team can't play in a consistent manner. passes get sloppy, the power play is still absolutely horrendous... i mean come on! we've had more than a couple of those with NO SHOTS on goal?! this team just doesn't have the heart and will to get it done like last year's team. this late into the playoffs we are sorely missing mckee and grier who we decided not to resign during the offseason. last year we were down 2/3 of our defensive regulars and still made the eastern conference finals. this year we have a completely healthy squad. this was supposed to be the year! i hate to say it... but two down on ottawa going into scotiabank place is a little too much to handle i think. i was hoping that with briere's goal with 5 seconds left in regulation would secure a win in OT... but the senators won battles and weren't as sloppy. they did a good job of pressuring our zone in the 2nd OT. this team is turning out just like this city... so much potential... but that thing that brings you over the hump is always a little too far away.

there's always hope i guess.............. but the past has taught me never to get my hopes up when anything associated with buffalo is concerned cause disappointment usually awaits. so... i hope that i'm wrong and we take the next 2 at least. otherwise... chalk it up to being buffalo... the heartbreak capital of the world.
