Hecht moving up is an indication of just how bad Foligno has been.

Hecht - Porter- Stafford

Whose going to score here? One goal between them.

Maybe this is our Shutdown Line. Good idea? Not sure who needs to be shut down on the panthers though.

This game is huge in the standing department. A win vaults us to 13th. A loss keeps us at the bottom of the barrel and losing ground.

Despite my desire to get MacKinnon or Drouin... Or Jones... Or Barkov... Or, well, any high rated rookie...

I can't root for this team to lose.

So I'm going to cheer and hope we defeat the Panthers. And if we don't, we're on our way to a good shot at landing a top guy...

It's a win/win situation.

Go Sabres!

Go Sabres!

Do what I've started doing: Root for them to play well and show signs of progress regardless of results.
Also, we lose 4-2
Campbell
Parros
Huberdeau
Goc

Hodgson
Ennis

The Panthers and Pens played shinny the other night in what was a wildly entertaining game (at least for the parts I caught). Win or lose, I'd be entertained with a similar game.

@BuffNewsVogl Marcus Foligno, who has no goals in 15 games, will be Sabres' healthy scratch among forwards.

Wonder if the d-pair pecking order stays the same as the Tampa game.

Sekera/Regehr
Ehrhoff/Myers
Weber/Pardy

Sekera/Regehr got the lions share of ES minutes against the Lightning.

Let's see if they can build on their last win, I expect a tight game to the end. I just hope they'll put a few pucks in Clemmensen's net, he hasn't been that steady so far.
