Claude Julien should try to match Balej (RW) vs. James Patrick (Buffalo LD). Balej's explosive speed would really look awesome next to some of the slow Buffalo D (Patrick is the worst of 'em. At least according to a friend of mine who follows Buffalo). Against a relatively weak Buffalo team, our 2nd line could explode offensively. Especially if you consider Buffalo is coming back home after an exhausting road trip. So, Balej has a great opportunity to showcase his talent tonight. If he wants to impress, it has to start with tonight.
With Boulton out of their lineup (injured in fight), expect to see yet another Peters vs Langdon bout. And with Komisarek possibly on the 4th line, we could assist in several 4th line vs 4th line match-ups. Buffalo (read Lindy Ruff) is like that. I even remember one of our games against them earlier this season, they started the game with their fourth line (and 2 heavyweights) on the ice.
Should be a great game tonight!
