Sabres Survivor-Game Seventeen-Round Three vs OTT(03/13/11)
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
The Leafs had the final laugh in a back and fourth affair in Toronto Saturday night. Weber struck first for the Sabres but the Leafs would counter back with two goals of their own claiming a 2-1 lead in the second period. Not to be outdone, Buffalo scored twice before the end of the period taking a 3-2 lead into the room after 2. Toronto would go on to score two goals in the third period to jump ahead 4-3. Unfortunately for Buffalo, that would be the final score. The Sabres are now 4-2-1 in March.
Next up for the Sabres (33-27-8, 74pts.7th in East) are the Ottawa Senators (25-34-9, 68pts.15th in East). This is the 6th and final meeting of the season between these two teams. The Sabres lead the season series 4-1. in the last meeting, the Sabres defeated Ottawa 4-2 to seal up the season series victory. Can the Senators play spoiler to Buffalo's playoff dreams or will the Sabres rebound from their loss in Toronto by picking up 2 points in a very important game in hand on the other teams?
