Leaving Before the Buzzer

Posted 12:02 PM ET | Comments 3
Wednesday night’s game against Montreal was the perfect of example of a time when fans should not leave a hockey game early. If the Chris Drury goal with 7.7 seconds left to go against the Rangers in the playoffs taught Buffalo fans anything, it was just that.

Though, how many empty seats were there as the clock began to run down? Just how many people got up to leave to beat traffic because they didn’t think the Sabres could pull it off?

People who didn’t believe, that’s what.

Now mind you, watching the game made me extremely frustrated. To watch the Sabres try and dangle the puck over the blueline individually while the Habs were up 2-0 was aggravating.

They either tried to go for the pretty play or they didn’t make good dump ins with the puck. In the second period, they were getting shots through but Carey Price was holding down the fort in net. It just looked as if Montreal was heading home with two points and the Sabres would wonder why they played so poorly that evening.

Fast forward to about three and a half minutes left on the clock. Ryan Miller was pulled for the extra attacker and the Sabres had a power play as well.

i've never had any problem with people leaving early...it's their perogative...i never do, though...i do have a problem with schoopsie, though...he's a personality (an abrasive-ass-type) and a marginal sports fan at best...to write a column like he did justifying it (beating traffic) shows, yet again, that he has no heart/intestinal fortitutde and sux as a sports talk-show host...go bulldog

The real problem is that the team played so horribly for the first 57 minutes. I never leave early, but if I was at that game I probably would have left too.
