Sabres Survivor-Game Three-Round Three @ OTT (02/12/13)
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 Ennis, Ennis NO. Ennis,Vanek,Ennis YES. Ennis,Vanek,Ennis,Vanek,Ennis 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 did not 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)

Tyler Ennis' 5th goal of the season would be all the offence the Sabres could muster up against Anton Khudobin. Miller made 36 saves in the loss, but a Patrice Bergeron PPG was all Boston needed to earn the two points. Lucic added an ENG to seal the deal.
