OTTAWA -- On the way out of town for the drive home, which will by highlighted by the St. Bonaventure-Xavier game broadcast, let's review a crazy Saturday night in Scotiabank Place.
It started with a flubbed version of "O, Canada" by local country singer Tara Holloway, who was too much into an American Idol act and couldn't get through French lyrics. Credit to her for keeping it together -- and for the crowd for helping out. Memo to Tara on the Star Spangled Banner: It's "O'er the land of the free" and NOT "Over the land of the free." Yeesh.
Here's the video of the big mishap:
As for the game, the Sabres battled back three times for a 4-3 shootout victory and Marcus Foligno's game-tying goal was a big reason why. The Sabres return home to play Montreal and injuries are again a factor as they might be without Thomas Vanek, Patrick Kaleta and Matt Ellis.
