I hope Enroth starts. I know we need wins but we have too many back-to-backs for Miller to start every game.

Did Carolina and Nashville swap goalies?

I'd prefer Enroth vs. Florida on Friday. Gives Miller even more time off, plus he has a better chance of carrying us in the second of a back to back (against the Devils). I wouldn't be upset with Enroth tomorrow, but I think Florida is a better alternative, especially since Florida actually has gotten to Miller this year.

I think Enroth should get that game and today's game.

From 3/29-4/2, we have 4 games in 6 days against Toronto, NYR, Washington, and Carolina. I wouldn't be surprised if Miller started in all of them.

Fair enough, wouldn't have a problem with that. And yeah, unless we build a lead between now and then, Miller is definitely playing all 4 of those.

I would not be averse to Miller playing here against the Preds and giving Enroth the game against the Canadiens. Plus Enroth has not lost to Montreal yet!..........albeit only one game played against.

That would give Miller SIX days of rest before playing four games in a week, seems logical, but the risk of Enroth vs. Montreal may be substantial.....however he has proven he can beat them.

EDIT: He is 1-0, my bad.

yeah remember, Enroth doesn't completely suck like Lalime does, which is a nice luxury. I'd give Jhonas the start today.

Oh and as others have said elsewhere, this will be a low-scoring game with a high probability of overtime. I'll say 2-1 good guys

I can't think of any one game where I would want Lalime to play.

As a comparison, Enroth has faced:
-Boston
-Toronto
-New Jersey
-NY Rangers
-Pittsburgh
-Montreal
-Minnesota
-Ottawa

I would only have considered Lalime against Ottawa, but that would even be a stretch.


All things considered, I think Enroth would do well against Nashville.....as long as he doesnt play like he did against Ottawa......

Just win.

Also, Thomas Vanek was plenty angry and frustrated tonight. I wouldn't be surprised to see him take it out on the scoresheet.

I highly doubt we see Enroth tomorrow. I bet Enroth gets one game, maybe two tops, through the final 11.

Thats what I was thinking, they just came off 3 days rest I'd be shocked if we dont see Miller again today. I'd play Enroth Friday or Saturday this upcoming weekend.

Let's GO Buffalo! Looking forward to this game, This will be the Preds 3rd game in 4 days. I hope their tank is running low. Here's to hoping the scoring carries over from last night.

Useless trivia: there will be 9 skaters that played in Portland on the ice in this one, and one coach.

Agreed. With the time off they've had this week, I have no problems with Miller playing tonight and again on Tuesday. Enroth can have the Panthers.

This is such a tough one ...

I can see the Sabres totally lay an egg this game.
I can see them build on the weekend and dominate a tired Nashville team. Decisions decisions...

Well I'll be there so I will be cautiously optimistic ...

Sabres - 3
Nashville - 2
