Wow, I think you guys might be more confident in a Sens victory than we are.

Best of luck tonight.

LOL. Once you see the size of Enroth's 5 hole, which is commonly confused with a 55 gallon drum, you'll know why.

Agreed. Our defensive coverage has been atrocious, giving up odd man breaks and prime scoring chances. Karlsson has been playing fantastic and is so slick with the puck. He will have a very good night.

Should be a blast

Was going to comment on them being a league worst in shot differential but it appears that is not the case.

They are indeed bloody awful at giving up shots (29th - ahead of only Oilers).

But they actually are good at shots for per game (9th)

However, IMO, they are giving up prime shots. They have had stretched of seasons where they give up a lot of shots, but they are mostly contained to perimeter shots with a clear line of sight for the tender.

This season they are giving up lots of shots and they are coming in the slot and around the net with screens or left all alone with no coverage.

Got to clean that up fast. Erhoff being out won't help.

After that post from a sens fan in the main boards saying Erik K should be in discussion for the best player in the league, I am really looking forward to watch him play tonight.

This will be my first time seeing him also. My friends say he's even quicker in person, he just zooms down the ice. Should be a treat to watch him.

Enroth's in, and Ehrhoff is out?

6-0 Sens, honestly. Can't see us being competitive.

Have watched him quite a bit, and he is fun to watch, unless he is shredding your team.

IMO, think of the good Campbell that can also play defense.

Finally got around to updating the OP lineups... some tweets that probably have been noted already, but nonetheless:
Quote:
John Vogl ‏@BuffNewsVogl
Jhonas Enroth will start in goal for the Sabres against the Senators. "We need a big effort," coach Lindy Ruff said.

Quote:
Ian Mendes ‏@ian_mendes
Christian Ehrhoff suffered an undisclosed muscle injury on Sunday and will not play tonight vs Ottawa.

Quote:
John Vogl ‏@BuffNewsVogl
Sabres' latest drill has defense pairings of Pardy-Myers, Leopold-Weber and Brennan-Sulzer.

Quote:
Ottawa Senators ‏@NHL_Sens
Update: Sergei Gonchar (flu) is expected to play tonight but will be a game time decision. If he can't go, Mark Borowiecki will replace him.

It's impressive how eight games into a season we're already missing three of the top six defensemen.

And of the three healthy d-men, two have been grossly incompetent. But hey, at least we have Sulzer playing well.

Looks even worse on the ice / in person. Really, it does.

I put on paper because we haven't seen Pardy play yet. Mind you it can't get much worse can it?

I'm actually optimistic about Pardy, he plays a simple game. Keep the play to the outside, tie guys up in the middle, clear the puck along the boards, make the safe play and get it out of the zone.

It would be hilariously awesome if Pardy is able to right the Myers ship.

Looks like Pegula found his injury excuse for this year, too.

Eh, Oh, Buffalo Go!

That said, we lose this one. Too many men out on the backend and Anderson has been playing out of his mind.

Hey look, 9,000 posts.
