INSIDE SCOOP: Jason Pominville
(The questions below were submitted by fans through Sabres.com and the Weekly Report, a weekly recap that is delivered to Sabres Insider's email.)

What went through your mind after you scored your second goal against L.A.? Did you have a feeling you were going to get the hat trick? Adam P., Queensbury, NY
Jason Pominville: Not much, it was just another goal. The team was doing well and I was just looking forward to getting another one. It's not something you really think about. I just play my game and shoot the puck. I had the time to shoot, and I was fortunate that another one found its way in.

Which did you enjoy more this season, your AHL five-goal game or your NHL hat trick? John J., Fairport, NY
JP: My NHL hat trick.

Who have you found to be the toughest team to play against? Kevin B., Calgary, Alberta

JP: San Jose was pretty tough, but we didn't play well. Calgary was probably the toughest game this season.

If you weren't a hockey player, what would you have liked to become? After you're done playing hockey, are you planning on pursuing that? Heidi L., North Tonawanda, NY
JP: I don't know, something sports related like a physical education teacher. Done playing hockey? Maybe, but I'm not sure.

Who do you want to win the Superbowl? Kim O., Ardmore, AL
JP: Pittsburgh!

Describe the rollercoaster of being sent through waivers to Rochester, then being called back up, getting power-play minutes and scoring a hat trick. Aaron K., Wesley Chapel, FL
JP: The whole waiver thing was something I never really expected to get picked up on. At the start of the year, every team thinks they have what it takes to go all the way and that makes it hard to get taken off waivers. I went down with a positive attitude, worked hard and tried to get back here as soon as I could. They called me up pretty quickly so I was fortunate.

Has the transition from QMJHL - AHL - NHL been an easy one to make? Alex K., Brooklyn, NY
JP: Every league is a big step. I thought going from the Quebec to the AHL was probably the hardest. It has never been easy to move up, but I try taking it a step at a time and hopefully it will pay off.

When you travel with the team is it the same as traveling alone? Do you have to go through security or do the Sabres have their own plane? Liz M., Buffalo, NY
JP: We have a charter plane but you still have to go through security. Customs isn't as bad as traveling commercially and it's definitely a lot quicker, but overall, we still have to go through the normal routines of a standard passenger on any flight.

In your opinion, who is the best goalie you have faced so far this season? Justin S., Blasdell, NY
JP: Probably, Roberto Luongo.
