OK, I know I posted "hope is dead" on BFLOBlog a few weeks back, and you know what? I stand by it. Hope was dead a few weeks back. The Sabes were the pits. The funny thing about hope is that it comes back to life... like a phoenix if you will. And yes, playoff hopes are alive for the Sabres with our mini streak going. We've got a tremendous way to go, but this is definitely a start.
Special thanks are also in order for the Sabres fans text messaging team for keeping me in the know during my mid state sojourn. I salute and thank them profusely.
