this has "blowout" written all over it. downturns after big emotional wins like they had the other night are common, and despite the fact that the gave more than they received as far as beatings go, they're bound to be hurting a little bit extra today

sabres by four or five

I will be there with my son, so I'm expecting the typical "hey, can they get more than one shot in the first 15-minutes of the game" start. That's been typical of most of the games I've attended this year.

I'll be there today. Hopefully we don't lay an egg against the Isles.

It'll be interesting to see how the Isles come out in this one. Will they be sore from fight night the other night? Will they be distracted by the suspensions handed down? Or will they be emboldened by the fact they killed the Pens with that style of play, and start running around causing trouble, albeit to a lesser extent?

I think the Sabres would be wise to keep their head down and turn the other cheek for the most part. Get a quick lead and see if the Isles lose some interest. I think the Sabres will get to Koiskinen early, and win going away. Sabres, 5-3.

Tavares (of course)
Moulson (of course)
Parenteau

McCormick

3pm? Looks like I've got something to cure my no-football hangover.

Nice to have a home afternoon game, I hope they bring the effort for all the kids in attendance.

But we beat the Islanders last time, 5-3. I was there. That was also a 3pm Sunday game, btw.

This is a pretty big game. They need to beat teams like this to get into the playoffs.

Do the Islanders actually have enough skaters not suspended to dress a team?

Any word on if Kaleta's back in? He could certainly stir up a depleted Islander hornet's nest. Either way, I expect Haley to be running around a lot today, and McCormick will likely have to answer the bell with him and Konopka at some point.

Yeah, this is definitely a 'must win'. If we win, then in a way we don't gain any ground on a playoff spot. But if we lose, then we lose ground on a playoff spot.

Yeah, if we win then we gain on one team, stay even with the other, and maintain our games in hand. A win is big today.

From Harrington yesterday:

POST-PRACTICE UPDATE

Montador says he's aiming to be back in the lineup Tuesday night in Montreal after skating through the entire workout.

"We just took the right steps to make sure it wasn't anything serious," Montador said. "I think we did the right thing not to jump it too soon. I took the neuropsych test [Friday] and I aced it."

Ruff said Montador should be fully cleared for contact Monday. The coach added that Kaleta will likely play Sunday.

"He's an important piece of the puzzle for us," Ruff said. "He provides a lot of energy, creates some instability for the other team just becaue of how well he skates and forechecks."

If anything, I think the Isles are primed for a huge let-down game after that.

They were stewing all week after what happened with DiPietro getting KO'd, and were totally focused on getting their payback. And they got it in a blow-out win filled with fights. What usually happens after an emotional win like that, in a game you've been anticipating for a while, is a let-down.

This crossed my mind, but I think either way were going to see a pretty normal hockey game this afternoon....
