Sabres @ Jets | Mon Mar 5 | 7CT | Game 67 | "Buffalo Wings Edition..."




Last 10: Buffalo 6-2-2; Winnipeg 5-3-2

Season Series: This is the fourth and final meeting of the season, with Winnipeg holding a slight
2-1 edge thus far this season. The Jets scored a 4-1 win in the most recent meeting, also at MTS
Centre, on Jan. 19.

Big Story: The Sabres enter Winnipeg playing their best hockey in months and will look to unsettle
the Jets from their tenuous hold on the Eastern's eighth and final playoff spot. With wins in six
of seven and goalie Ryan Miller surging, Buffalo is two points off Winnipeg's pace as crunch time
nears. The Jets are finishing an eight-game homestand.

Team Scope:

Sabres: Written off as late as mid-February, the Sabres have clawed their way back up the Eastern
standings with a 6-0-1 mark over their past seven games. While the team has shown improvement over
that span (see also the Sabres killing 17 of 19 power plays over that stretch), Miller deserves the
lion’s share of the credit. The 2009-10 Vezina Trophy winner has posted a 1.40 goals-against average
while starting every game over the surge, including two straight shutouts heading into Saturday's
game against Vancouver. Miller conceded three to the Canucks, but two of those came in the third
period with Buffalo already up 4-1. Ville Leino scored twice within the first four minutes, and
the Sabres never looked back in a 5-3 win. It was just Vancouver's second loss in regulation in
19 games.

"It was an important win for us," Miller said. "We keep having to battle our way back to get close
to a chance of making the playoffs and we had a challenge with the Canucks, a powerhouse all year,
and I thought we did a great job."

Jets: If there's an offensive antidote to Miller anywhere in the NHL, it could come in the form of
Winnipeg's Evander Kane. The 20-year-old is on an impressive scoring streak, with seven goals and
seven assists over his last eight games. That includes a 2-goal, 2-assist night in Winnipeg's last
game, a 7-0 dismantling of the Southeast-leading Florida Panthers on Thursday. That win ended
a two-game skid, and gave Winnipeg a valuable win over a division rival.

"They're a team that we're behind and it can very well be the difference of us being in the playoffs
or not being in the playoffs so it was a big game for us," Kane said. "It was great to be able to
prove to everybody that we're here to play and we have a playoff mindset going into the next 16
games here."

Who's Hot: Tyler Ennis had an empty-netter against Vancouver, and had an assist in four straight
games prior to that.

Injury Report: For Buffalo, defenseman Robyn Regehr is doubtful for the game with a hip injury,
while Cody McCormick (upper body) and Jochen Hecht (concussion) are out indefinitely. Zach Bogosian
is the lone Jet on the injury list. Bogosian is doubtful with a wrist injury sustained since the
Florida game.

Stat Pack: While Buffalo has been killing all penalties in its path, Winnipeg has converted 10 of 19
chances over its past six games and ranks seventh League-wide with a conversion rate of 19.8
percent.

Puck Drop: Leino – a prized free-agent acquisition over the summer who has struggled to just 20
points so far this season – snapped a 14-game scoring drought with his two on Saturday.

"It's been a tough season," Leino said. "It hasn't gone my way and it hasn't gone the team's way.
But there's still a chance to make the playoffs and have fun here at the end. These are the games
you want to play, when things count. And obviously every game counts now."

Love the GDT YWGin YYZ

my great hope is that Buffalo has blown their brains out being red hot on the road and are due for a let down game after beating up on the west coast teams!!

Without Bogo I think we are in deep......we are back to starting 2 of Clitsome, Jones and or Flood together and then bumping Stuart into the top 4. We are missing quality depth right now and without Johnny O we are exposed.
I am 0-3 live since New years Eve game and I am due for a win. Once again must win before we head out to Vancouver and Calgary back to back.

What FLA players?




Thanks for the catch - forgot to paste the new table.

My take: this will be one awesome game tonight - you've got a red-hot Buffalo, vs a fired up Jets team, in a VERY close/tight Eastern Conference race. Win or lose, I think we see the Jets in a heck of a game tonight. No prediction from me on score, but I predict a hard-fought win.

Go Go!

I am so utterly unconcerned about the Jets moving again, this does not even cross my mind. Plenty of haters out there that like to talk **** when the Jets beat their team, but there is more chance that I get struck by lightning than the Jets moving in the next decade at very very least.

No worries I was looking at it like, how in the hell is Wheeler the leading scorer among these teams, I swear Pominville is having a great season...? Took me a minute or two to figure it out

Also, holy **** Roy is having a terribad season. Are you kidding me. He should be a 60 point C, minimum. Wonder what is going on there? And Leino

BUF will jump from 11th to 8th (ahead of Jets) if they win, this is a stupidly huge game. Go JETS!

Sneaky big game.
Every game is obviously huge right now for this team, but Buffalo has been charging of late and are challenging us for that last playoff spot. I think the Jets will end the home stand on a high note. Jets 3-1.

Sabres fan coming in to say good luck tomorrow! May both teams play a good game with no injuries. Sabres have been impressive lately, but I don't expect it to last. I think the Jets take us apart.

3-1 Jets

Leino's 20pts and 4.5M cap hit makes Antro's 30pts and 4M look pretty good. Some really bad performances by many of the UFA crop last season.

Like I said in the pre-game thread, I'm glad Buffalo won on Saturday because given the way they're playing right now, I couldn't see them losing two games in a row.

My ideal scenario would be the Jets getting the 3rd seed and the Sabres getting the 8th seed in the playoffs. I'd much rather see them make it than Florida, Tampa Bay or Washington.

I could see the Jets taking this one by a large margin. Nothing insane like 7-0 but maybe 6-1.

I have a feeling someone is going to have a BIG night which to all of us will just seem routine at this point.

Bill Simmons is a writer for ESPN (and now Grantland) and he'll often tweet praise or proclaim wins for teams he's cheering against. His reverse jinx's have reached legendary status if you read/follow him.
Perhaps I should have added .

Have you guys heard something we havent? Everything I've seen mentioned is that Regehr is Day to day and Ruff is hopeful that he can play. Oh and under injuries you wrote Panthers lol

Silly Panthers - always in the way.

Thanks for the heads up on Regehr - not sure where I got the injury info from, but it was obviously wrong. G'luck tonight! (but not too much luck )

Well I mean...if you know Ruff..he's better at keeping injuries secret than the Allies hiding stuff from the Axis. He's in playoff mode the entire year heh. So really, your guess is as good as mine. But yah good luck, but again...not too much.
