Eh, Rolston might be done with Hodgson's demotion/discipline, who knows.

I don't know if it's the prospects of a high draft pick talking, but I'm hoping the Pens continue their streak.

In an intentionally contradictory way, I do.

I want to see them grasp for little things to salvage some pride. Take pride in the chance to end a massive win streak like the Pens'. Show some guts and play like you don't want to be dealt Wednesday. Play for your coach. Etcetera.

Don't be surprised if they troll us and win this game(I hope I'm wrong). I'm guessing a 4-1 Penguins victory.

Make no mistake about it, this game will be quite the exclamation point leading into the trade deadline...and it couldn't come at a more perfect time.

As much as fans have become accustomed to that classic troll by the Sabres, where they beat a team they have no business beating, this will not be a troll game. They are going to get drilled tonight by the Pens. Drilled.

This is their first game since Crosby went out, which means they will be determined to demonstrate that they have no intention of missing a beat in their play and their streak.

7-3 Pens.

Hmmmm....now that I think about it, it really sounds like a classic trap game...hmmmm...

Nah, 7-3 Pens.

I only care because it might be the last game in a Buffalo uniform for Pominville, who has been a great Sabre. I hope he pots a couple in a losing effort and rides off into the sunset.

10-0 Sabres. Miller gets a shut out in his last game and Pominville scores 10 (all assisted by Hecht)

I want them to play well in a losing effort (go draft position!)
But trolling the pens would be great...but we're not that good.
Hope Poms nets one

Wow. Obviously there a few nice veteran pieces there now, and players that should be nice in the future, but good lord. That's a tank lineup if I ever saw one. The Hecht/Hodgson swap and Adam callup was a nice touch.
