Gamethread #30: Canucks vs Sabres

New, comments

First meeting of the cousins

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Vancouver Canucks Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Combined, the two teams playing today have 100 years of NHL experience...with no Stanley Cups. The Canucks and Sabres joined the league together in 1970, and while the Sabres enjoyed success in the 1980’s and 1990’s and reached the finals once, the Canucks hold the edge with 3 finals appearances.

The similarities are there again this year as both teams came out of the gate in fire.....and then got slapped around in November. They both sit just out of a wild card spot. The Sabres have Jack Eichel.....and then some other guys. I’m sure the other team said the same about the Canucks and Petey.

The afternoon game is another must-win for the Nucks as the Pacific teams continue to win. Have an afternoon beer and relax.

Go Canucks Go!
