I think the Sabres did a great job with the pre-game ceremony for Patrick Kane.
The people from Buffalo are proud of him and happy for him. He is a really talented player and he should be around the league for a while.
I think the first time I played in my hometown of Montreal was my birthday actually. The night before I was able to go home to have dinner with my parents. Obviously, growing up there, my friends came to the game or watched it on TV. My family was there so it was pretty exciting.
There wasn’t really that much pressure on me coming home. On the other hand, maybe there was a little bit because I believe it was one of my first games.
I had just been called up at the time and I had to go out there and try to prove myself. I really wanted to stay in the lineup. But it was a fun time and something I will remember for a while.
Things are going fairly well for my line right now.
We [Pominville, Jochen Hecht
and Tim Connolly] started off the year together so we are getting used to playing together again. I think we are effective. That comes by knowing where each other is going to be at all times. We play the system pretty well and all like to work hard out on the ice. It’s a pretty good fit for us.
The snow was pretty neat. Yesterday, it made watching the football game a more fun game to watch. The snow isn't bad once in a while, but not too often. (Editor's Note: Watch Pominville's post-game remarks regarding Buffalo's 3-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night below.)
