Sabres Survivor-Game Seventeen-Round Four vs CAR(03/15/11)
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
Connolly, Gaustad, Ennis, Vanek, Weber, Pominville and Sekera all had multi point nights as Buffalo defeated the Senators 6-4. The Sabres finish up the season series vs Ottawa with a strong 5-1 record. The Sabres are now 5-2-1 in March.
Next up for the Sabres (34-27-8, 76pts.7th in East) are the Carolina Hurricanes (31-28-10, 72pts.9th in East). This is the 3rd of 4 meetings this season between these two teams. The season series is tied 1-1 as both teams have won against the other, however the Sabres have a slight edge in points gained as their loss came in overtime. In the most recent match-up, the Hurricanes battled back twice from 1 goal deficits forcing the game into extra time where Jamie McBain squeaked one past Miller 0:26 seconds into OT giving Carolina the huge win. Will the Hurricanes make it two in a row against Buffalo tightening the standings up even more or can the Sabres keep rolling as they attempt to lock down one of the final two spots in the East?
