You're right. I am also a long-time Red Sox fan, so I truly believe in "it ain't over til it's over." I hope this time it is over though.

Good luck to all

Scarlett,

At the last game I sat right behind a man and woman who were both Buffalo fans, and their teenage daughter was wearing a Carolina jersey. We asked them how did that happen, and they said they guess they went wrong somewhere.

Should be a war tonight. One team has to win, and I hope the other plays like it has to as well.

KC & The Sunshine Band says:

"That's the way, uh huh...uh huh, I like it, uh huh, uh huh!" \/

Austin Powers says: "Yeah, Baby!"

BuffaloGirl says: "Phew!" And then, "Sweeeeet!"

YIKES!!!!!!!! I've had to hit the bottle (of Rhine) tonight after that one!

I'm not sure I can sit through another one .... I guess the 'Canes just want to win it at home!

Thanks for the rose, BG! Your guys played well ... ( )

Yeah, now I have to go to a school function and Game 7 in one night. Oh well. That was a frustrating game because of the way it ended and Justin William's missed shot earlier, but at least the final game is here in NC. Go Canes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd like to say I'm speechless after last night's game, but what I really am is voiceless! Or pretty darn close! It was a great game and game 7 should be wild. The Arena was rockin'. Sabres in 7!!!!!

Holy Cow.

As a (sad and frustrated) Bruins fan, I don't have a favorite, but this series sure is fun to watch. I can't wait for game 7.

And then, even better, its winner vs Edmonton. Rock on.

I do think both teams did some great playing last night .... BUT I think the officials did some awful calling/not calling in the overtime, to the detriment of Carolina. Laviolette almost NEVER compains about officials ... but you can hear him loud and clear today, and I agree!

I don't think the officials were the reason Buffalo won (they played hard and well), but they may have helped Buffalo end the game when it ended. Williams had a rough night.

Ah, but that call against McKee (I think it was him) was totally bogus!

I agree that was a bad call on the McKee trip, but the frustrating thing about the last no call was that it resulted pretty directly in the game winning goal. Still, the Canes should have avoided a penalty leading up to it and should have had a lead if not for William's blown shot off of Brind'Amour's great pass. Buffalo outworked the Canes last night, but I would be shocked if that happens Thursday. I think both teams will play their butts off. One side is going to be devestated even if they realize what a great series it was. I give the Canes a small advantage because of home ice and the desire to make up for last night's mistakes, but it will almost certainly go down to the wire. Let's all take a deep breath before each period and hope to live through it.

Since this is a travel site, I must mention that my wife and I desided to go on our first cruise for our anniversary, and now it turns out the ship leaves two days before Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals (and I have tickets for the game). What perfect timing!! "If" the Canes do make it, I am praying it ends in 5 or less, but first Game 7 of this series has to be decided.

I love the focus of the Buffalo players and coaching staff. I haven't heard one complaint all playoffs about officiating, ice conditions, injuries, etc. They are just playing their game. On the other hand, did you hear Doug Weight's whining about the penalty called on him in overtime? I was there and have watched the replay on television several times, and the officials had no choice but to call the penalty. Either way, calls and non calls are part of the game, and neither team has won or lost because of the officiating. Penalties have been called on the Sabres in overtime all 3 series so far, and they just go out there and kill them off.

With all due respect, Buffalo lets its coach do all the complaining for the team : )
