Game on! The Sabres are back, and all is well

The hopes of downtown restaurant and bar owners, depressed sports fans, and kids in Ryan Miller jerseys were fnally answered on Sunday, as the puck dropped once again at First Niagara Center. And what a return it was, as the Sabres downed the Flyers 5-2 in a spirited contest that featured just about everything one wants from hockey: Fights! Killer dekes! An empty net goal!

For many of us, it was a reminder just how much we missed the darn game. The great photographer Joe Casico was there, and captured the scene in all its glory.

Looks great, doesn't it? Here's to hockey, and hopefully, the playoffs.
