Even if we lose today(and we won't ), here's a good quote from Bucky.

"Maybe this will calm the masses. The #Sabres' 6-5 record is the equivalent of being 1-1 in the NFL with 14 games remaining. "

Thanks, I knew I forgot something.

Edit: And those lines are definitely unconfirmed for now.

Sabres, 3-2. Fortunately, like Columbus, Calgary is in the second of a back-to-back. Also, given that we're likely starting our backup, this is a non-conference game, and the Flames have a road conference game on Sunday night in Colorado, I wonder if we see Henrik Karlsson in net for them tonight. This game is part of 3 games in 4 nights, 4 games in 6 nights, and 5 games in 8 nights, and it's the only non-conference game of the bunch. Considering how bad much of our offense has been, we could use a game against Karlsson, who I think is one of the lesser backups in the league.

Iginla
Bourque

Ehrhoff
Vanek
Roy

It's my fault we haven't been winning lately, I've forgotten...

BUFFALO GO!!

Both Weber and Ellis have the ability to be in 2 places at once. It's part of their awesomeness.

But does it make them half as effective? Cause that'd explain a few things. Also, how many ways have some of the other guys have divided themselves?

Looking at those rosters, it seems there's quite a size disparity between those two teams. Buffalo is going to have to beat Calgary with speed and skill, because the Flames look like a much bigger team at first glance.

for once a Bucky quote that is dead on.

It will be Nice to see how Butler's doing. Always kind of liked him as a player. But I reserve the right to revise my opinion once I see officially who is starting, who is scratched.

Let's go! Turn this around!

Hmm... perhaps it is a better idea to just post the lines, since the site I have been using as a reference for scratched players doesn't seem to have updated in awhile.

Anyway, I can post the lines for now and add the true scratches (and lines if may be) right before or just as the game starts.

Thanks for the help guys.

Per the norm, aren't the Sabres the smaller of the two teams on a given night? Okay, except against the Montreal Munc- err, Canadiens?

Lol, Lindy's just going to change the lines every 5 minutes anyway. Scratches would be cool, though

True, but at least they would be in a clear order.

Really? He's started out rough this year but I think Karlsson is at worst a mediocre back-up. I have also never been fully aboard the Kipprusoff train so that may play a role in my perception of starter vs back-up in this case.

Yup. I like it, given that he didn't allow any more goals in the Philly game. Deserved. Also gives Miller a little more time to get past the Philly game.

Get the mojo back guys!

3-2 Sabres

Ehrhoff, Stafford, or Tropp with a goal

I hope Regehr has a strong game. And I hope he pulls Iginla aside and plants a little bug in his brain about coming to the Sabres if leaving Calgary is on the table. Come to Buffalo, we have cookies, err I mean wings.

I like Enroth starting, but I hope it has more to do with that being the schedule in the first place than anything else.
