Flynn, Wolves Drop Close Game to Celtics

  • Posted on November 5, 2009 at 5:14 pm

Jonny Flynn and the Minnesota Timberwolves returned home last night to Minneapolis and the Target Center after a stint on the road to take on the Boston Celtics and Kevin Garnett, the former star of the  Timberwolves.

Fan buzz was high before a game that pit the Wolves new star against the old. Despite a strong effort by Flynn to show that new guard was superior to the old, the Timberwolves and Flynn fell just a little bit short… 2 points short to be exact, 92-0.  Boston came into the game undefeated at 6-0.

Examining Trent Edwards’ steady decline in Buffalo

  • Posted on November 5, 2009 at 4:23 pm

In case you missed it, here’s the short, up-to-date version of the latest on the Buffalo Bills’ quarterback “situation” (or lack thereof): Trent Edwards has returned to full practice during the Bills’ bye week, and barring an unforeseen setback in his recovery from a Week 6 concussion, he is expected to start in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans. Ryan Fitzpatrick, who guided the Bills to three abysmal offensive performances and, curiously, a 2-1 record in essentially three full games as the starter, will return to backup duties.

Edwards will very likely, therefore, resume a Bills career that has reached new lows after the team lost four of his first five starts this season. This is a pivotal season for Edwards, not just because of the circumstances with the team, but because it’s his third season in the NFL. That’s typically when you know what you have in a player.  Last I checked, that third season is not yet over for Edwards.

Miller Stands Tall As Sabres Avenge Halloween Loss

  • Posted on November 5, 2009 at 2:07 am

What an answer by the Buffalo Sabres.

After being shut out on the road by Marty Brodeur and the New York Islanders five to nothing on Halloween Night, the Sabres responded on Wednesday with a dominating performance, defeating the Isles three to nothing.

Two of the Sabres most important offensive cogs got the monkeys off of their backs, as Derek Roy potted his first goal of the season while Thomas Vanek got back to his goal scoring ways, putting one past Marty Biron and tallying an assist as well.  Ryan Miller made twenty four saves and the Sabres won thirty nine of forty seven faceoffs in a dominating performance.
