Well, Game 1 is finally here! The past several days have inched by as I've waited for the playoffs to start. It should be a good game. I think the Islanders will really work hard and battle. The Sabres have waited for this all season, so they better be ready. I expect them to play like they were at the start of the season and during the playoffs last year. At times throughtout the season you could tell the Sabres stopped caring as much, but all of their effort should be there tonight.
3-2 Sabres (Afinogenov, Briere, Kotalik)
