Sabres Survivor-Game Thirteen-Round Three @ FLA (02/10/11)
Sabres Survivor Rules
-Pick a Sabre who you believe will score a point in tonight's 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 score sheet, 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 Roy,Roy NO. Roy,Connolly,Roy YES. Roy,Connolly,Roy,Connolly,Roy 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 doesn't 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.
-LAST MAN OR WOMAN STANDING WINS
Stafford and Vanek remained red hot as they combined for 5 goals and an assist in TB. That's a combined 8 goals and 12 points in the last two games. Buffalo fell behind 3-1 late in the second to the Bolts before Vanek struck to give the Sabres hope heading into the third. 5 unanswered Sabres goals later and it was Tampa who had no hope as the Sabres cruised to a 7-4 W.
Next up for the Sabres (25-22-5,55pts.3rd in NE) are the Florida Panthers (23-24-6,52pts.5th in SE). This is game 3 of 4 between these two teams. The Panthers lead the season series 2-0. In Buffalo's last trip out to Florida back in December, the Panthers put a pounding on the Sabres scoring 4 times in the first period alone en route to a 6-2 W. Buffalo enters the game winners in 7 of their last 10 games, while the Cats have won just twice in their past 10, going 2-4-4. Will Florida guarantee a season series win over Buffalo with another W or can the Sabres continue their push for the playoffs with another important victory?
