Didn't this happen a few years ago.

Some guy who was a goalie in pick up games ended up getting a start?

I wonder how much Buffalo would give up for Tuukka Rask right now...

They deserve nothing less.  Arizona plays in front of more vendors than fans but at least they are making an effort to improve the team in hopes of drawing more people with a young, exciting roster.  The Sabres just piss all over their fans with shiatty trades and contracts, not to mention their embarrassing draft history and treatment of young stars.

You can't drink all day if you don't start early.

I just watched it for the first time a few days ago. The Bruce Boudreau connection was cool, as were the Hanson brothers. I thought Killer Carleson was lame and I did not understand the ending with the guy stripping on the ice.

Thus the 'that' heavily & the pace yourself

Admittedly I don't know a lot about hockey but what surprises me is that they have 6 goalies on their roster.
That seems like a lot.

They didn't.  Generally a team will have the starting goalie & a backup.  Occasionally there will be three if they want to call up a rookie to give him a game or two's experience/let him see what things look like at the NHL level before being sent back down (not because he isn't any good but because he can regularly play down there).

With Buffalo, because of injury, Covid, suspension, or whatever, they've gone through both their regular goalies, the two from the next lower level league (AHL) & now the two from the league below that one (ECHL).  (in baseball terms for example they went through MLB, AAA, & AA and are now looking for someone who plays A level ball).  The goalies may not all have contracts with those leagues, but that's about the level that they have access to at the moment.  I think I read somewhere that Buffalo has had 12 different goalies play for them this season...a complete shiatshow in other words.

If the Saber play the Coyotes and no one is there to see it happen did it really happen at all?

The Coyotes are average over 11k per game, 3k more than Buffalo is so save that joke for next year

Also, the Sabres are in Arizona today and they're reporting multiple Covid positives. Retesting is underway, but the status of the game tonight is undetermined.

heh... https://www.nhl.com/news/buffalo-sabres-arizona-coyotes-game-recap/c-330288200

also, would you care to compare pre-covid attendance numbers?  This year Key Bank Arena requires proof of vaccination for attendance... Gila River Arena does not require vax, or negative test or masks.
