Feels like a 1-0 shootout win! Wonder if Hodgson gets scratched for a 7th D.

I'm thinking scratched in favor of a 3rd goalie.

This could be a win, New Jerseys record is better than it should be. This team is almost always out shot like the Sabres and is rank 29th this season in goals for, one ahead of us. Pretty much this game is about what goalie will make a mistake first.

I can't believe NBCSN picked two Sabres games in a row.. I think this will end up being a 2-1 snoozefest.

Watch them finish 29th, ahead of us by only 1 point, then we both lose the lottery and they lose out on McEichel.

@BuffaloSabres

#Sabres held an optional skate this morning. Coach Ted Nolan will address the media with game day updates around 4:30pm. #BUFvsNJD

Here are the projected line combinations:

SABRES

Chris Stewart – Zemgus Girgensons – Tyler Ennis

Matt Moulson – Torrey Mitchell – Brian Gionta

Marcus Foligno – Brian Flynn – Nicolas Deslauriers

Johan Larsson – Matt Ellis – Cody Hodgson

Andre Benoit – Zach Bogosian

Nikita Zadorov – Rasmus Ristolainen

Mike Weber – Andrej Meszaros

Michal Neuvirth

Anders Lindback

Scratched: Tyson Strachan

Injured: Josh Gorges (lower body), Patrick Kaleta (lower body), Cody McCormick (blood clots), Evander Kane (shoulder)

DEVILS

Mike Cammalleri - Travis Zajac - Jordin Tootoo

Adam Henrique - Patrik Elias - Steve Bernier

Tuomo Ruutu - Scott Gomez - Jaromir Jagr

Dainius Zubrus - Jacob Josefson - Stephen Gionta

Andy Greene - Adam Larsson

Jon Merrill - Marek Zidlicky

Eric Gelinas - Peter Harrold

Cory Schneider

Keith Kinkaid

Scratched: Michael Ryder, Mark Fraser, Martin Havlat

Injured: Damon Severson (fractured left ankle), Bryce Salvador (back), Ryane Clowe (suspected concussion)

Status report: Sabres coach Ted Nolan said Monday that Kaleta required minor surgery and will miss 4-6 weeks. … The injury to Gorges has allowed Benoit to play a bigger role with the Sabres along the back end. He was paired with Bogosian on Sunday against the Flyers.

Who's hot: Stewart has two goals and six points in the past seven games. … Bernier has seven goals in the past 12 games.

I can't get behind that. Earlier in the year, yes. This is the stretch run. Gotta build a buffer so I can rest easy. Plus, wins are bad for the Leafs.

Yes Ted, a converted RW is definitely better in the middle of the third line than the two actual centers on the fourth.

Murray was a genius to extend Teddy.

Didn't Foligno play center last year for a few games? I can't remember how that went?

Yes. He played center previous to that a few times as well. I don't think he's any worse there than Flynn.
