Sabres Survivor-Game Five-Round Seven @ OTT (12/20/11)
Sabres Survivor Rules
-Pick a Sabre who you believe will score a point in tonights game. If you believe the Sabres will be shutout, you may select a shutout as your pick. If you are correct, you live on. If that Sabre is held off the scoresheet, or if you pick shutout and are incorrect, you've been voted off the island. However, If all remaining players in the Survivor Game are eliminated giving us no winner based on points. A series of tiebreakers will be used to determine the winner of that Survivor Game. The tiebreaker order is as follows: Most Shots on Goal. Best +/- rating. Most PIM.Most TOI.
-You can pick a player a maximum of 2 times in one game, but never consecutively.
EX Roy,Roy NO. Roy,Vanek,Roy YES. Roy,Vanek,Roy,Vanek,Roy NO.
-Shootout goals will not be counted as points. The player you choose must record a point in regulation time or in the 5 minute overtime for it to be counted
-If the Sabres are shutout, and nobody has picked a shutout for that game, the game continues on.The picks made for the game in which the Sabres were shutout apply to the next Sabres game. However, If a shutout occurs and a shutout was picked by a contestant than all contestants with player picks are eliminated.
-You can pick the same Sabre as someone else did for any given game as long as you have not used that Sabre twice already.
-Make your picks carefully. If you choose a Sabre who doesn't play in that game, you are eliminated due to that Sabre scoring 0 points in that game.
-Once a Survivor game has started, nobody else can join in until that game has declared a winner.
- Picks must be made a before puck drop of that hockey game.
-If the thread for the next round of an ongoing Survivor game has not been posted at least 5 hours before puck drop on game day, all selections for that game are to be posted in the previous game's Survivor thread. (Ex. Make picks for Round Two in Round One thread if no Round Two thread is up)
-LAST MAN OR WOMAN STANDING WINS
After a dreadful 8-3 loss in Pittsburgh at the hands of Malkin's 5 point night, Buffalo is now 3-3-2 in December.
Next up for the Sabres (16-13-3,35pts,2nd in NE) are the Ottawa Senators (15-14-4,34pts,2nd in NE). This is the fouth of six meetings between these two teams. Buffalo leads the season series 2-0-1 claiming 5 out of a possible 6 points thus far. Ottawa looks for their second win in eight days against Buffalo as the Sens won the previous meeting 3-2 in OT last week. Buffalo enters action on a stale pace. The Sabres are 6-8-3 in their past 17 games with a mountain of injuries and poor play to blame. Ottawa has been playing very similar hockey as Buffalo going just 5-5-3 in their past 13 games.
Vanek leads the team with 17 goals.
Pominville leads the team with 25 assists.
Pominville leads the team with 35 points.
