Forget a game recap, I can look at that picture all day.

A curious thing happened last night: I realized that Nathan Horton has somehow become quite the villain. Remember when he gave Afinogenov a shot after the empty net goal in the spring?

What’s more, Larry Quinn has specifically mentioned Horton’s arbitration hearings and contract as the reason the Sabres had to settle and sign Derek Roy’s deal two seasons ago. Add in last night’s little skirmish with Kaleta and you have a pretty solid list of bad blood between Horton and the Sabres from top to bottom.

In other words, what a jerk.
