Finally, it's playoff time

It's been nearly 35 months since the Sabres played a playoff game -- May 19, 2007 to be exact -- and the wait is over. Sabres-Bruins Game One is tonight in HSBC Arena and it's a huge day in The News, online and here at ye olde Sabres Edge blog. Be sure to pick up your print edition, complete with an eight-page preview section and a full-page Paul Gaustad photo. Plenty of good reads:

John Vogl takes us inside the Ryan Miller-Tuukka Rask matchup and then studies what Tyler Myers can do for an encore in his first playoff run.

Bucky Gleason says Thomas Vanek has to be worth his money this spring.

I'll show you some key reasons the Sabres found those two extra points they were missing last year to get into the playoffs.

Lots of other links at our main Sabres page and a bevy of stats and terrific photos in the print editions as well.

Stay with us on the blog all day with updates from the morning skates. We'll have a live pregame chat from 6:30-7 as well. How about going to the video? Here's The News' breakdown of things, as well as the Boston Globe's view.
