Sabres Survivor-Game Seventeen-Round Two @ TOR (03/12/11)
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.
-If the thread for the next round of an ongoing Survivor game has not been posted by me at least 5 hours before puck drop on game day (by 2pm for a 7pm game, 2:30pm for a 7:30pm game etc.), all selections for that game shall be made in the previous games Survivor thread. (Ex. Make picks for Round Five game in Round Four thread if no Round Five thread is up)
The only exception to this rule would be if another poster creates a thread on the day of the game in which case picks can also be made in that thread.
-LAST MAN OR WOMAN STANDING WINS
Buffalo battled back to tie the game twice to force overtime against the Bruins. After falling behind 2-0, Ennis and Vanek struck to even the game at 2 a piece after 40 minutes. The Bruins took the lead once again early in the third however Tim Connolly would tie the game for the Sabres at 3-3. In the extra frame, Nathan Gerbe set up Brad Boyes for a simple tap in for the overtime winner. The Sabres are now 4-1-1 in March.
Next up for the Sabres (33-26-8, 74pts.7th in East) are the Toronto Maple Leafs (29-29-10, 68pts.10th in East). This is the 5th of 6 meetings between these two teams. The Sabres lead the season series 3-1. in the last meeting, the Leafs slipped past the Sabres 2-1 for their first win in Buffalo since 2008. Can the Leafs make it two in a row against the Sabres keeping their playoff hopes alive or will Buffalo maintain hold of 7th in the East with yet another road victory?
