Will Enroth start both games this weekend?

Barring injury/illness, Enroth will start tomorrow with back to back at Carolina on Friday and home vs Phoenix on Saturday. He started yesterday, last Friday and got a period last Saturday plus the presumed start tomorrow. Pretty heavy workload. After the Coyotes game the Sabres next game is the following Wednesday (Bruins, obviously) so there's some recovery time.

Do you think Drew MacIntyre will get a start this weekend?

I'd put money on Lindy playing Enroth 14 days straight if MacIntyre is his alternative.

Yeah, that's where I'm at as well. It is his way in situations like this.

If MacIntyre gets any time in net then clearly we're screwed.

He isn't that bad, if he sees a game I prefer against Pheonix. Western Confrence game and play 1-3-1..

I'm not saying he's bad at all, but I think the only way he gets in is if Enroth gets seriously hurt and can't go. I'm sure he'd be ok short term, but I don't even want to think about him being the #1 for a 6-7 game stretch if Miller is out that long (and with concussions who knows?)

I think Mac will start at home versus Phoenix, while Enroth will go against the LuckerCanes.

This.

We all know Lindy has ZERO problems running goalies into the ground if he's not comfortable with the backup.

Only way D-Mac gets into a game is if it's a blowout one way or the other.

MacIntyre only sees the ice in two cases.

1. Injury to Enroth
2. Ruff knows Miller is out for an extended period of time (ie months).

Neither are good developments.

I think everyone would be pleasantly surprised by MacIntyre's play. That being said, Enroth gets both starts.

It's no hate on Mac at all. Just that Ruff would be hard pressed to spot start the 3rd goalie in the organization unless he absolutely has to.

Especially when the team's still not performing as well as he - and we - know they can. They haven't looked that impressive in 75% of their games this year yet still have a winning record. I think Ruff is too nervous to gamble on an unknown like MacIntyre right now.

Plus, like Vogl pointed out, Enroth has handled long runs of play without rest just fine.

If we win on wednesday and friday than give Drew a start on Saturday. Gives him a start as we'll have won 7 of 8. If we lose either of the games before saturday than no.

My thoughts exactly.

3-1 is a big week for any team let alone one with their backup in net. If Buffalo gets to Saturday 3-0. Mac in net is fine by me and I've even got tickets to the game

Of course, watch Mac deliver a game stealing 1-0 45 save shutout giving us another three headed goalie monster problem again

If Enroth can handle it, keep playing him.
