Enroth seem to be the one in net. "Jhonas Enroth is 2-0-0 with a 0.49 GAA and a .986 SV% against the Hurricanes".

Pumped for this game. Carolina is coming into this one with a chip on their shoulder being 0-2. Still waiting to see if the doctors have cleared Gerbe to play yet. That would be a pretty intense line 42-25-9. Let's Go Buffalooooo!!

Carolina has not looked good so far. The only way the Sabres lose this game is if they get some bad breaks. I can't see Carolina outplaying the Sabres at this point.

I hope for some real pillaging this time.

I will watch the game tomorrow time shifted.

I want someprimary scoring and some more secondary scoring to destroy the Canes 5:1.

Of course 2 g and 1 a from Grgorenko.

Let's pile up the points early in the season so we don't have to stress during the stretch run.  Four more points in two nights against the Canes will go a long way in April.

Anything less than 3 points between tonight & tomorrow should be a disappointment.  We must pick up these points.  To be honest, they should get all 4.

Carolina has to get untracked at some point with so many good players on their team.  Let us hope they get on track after Friday.

Let's Go Buffalo!!!

I left my driveway this morning to discover the wailing cries of women being taken against their will, children screaming in terror and the mouth watering scents of roasted baby flesh filling my nostrils.  The sweet cacophony delights my senses like a beautiful orchestra.  Hockey heaven has indeed arrived in North Carolina my brothers and sisters.  Let's Go Buffalo!!

edit: and on a serious note,  I did find my Sabres car flag buried on a shelf in my garage last night.  It seems as though the lockout has dulled the passions of the local fans somewhat.  I only got the finger twice on my ride into work.

I have to say one of the most enjoyable wins I've witnessed at RBC/PNC was a few years ago when the Sabres won like 6-1.  All the Canes fans were gone and you could hear the 1,2,3....we want x!!! chants throughout the last 10 minutes of the game.  Speaking of that chant, do fans still do that one at FNC or has it gone away as well?

Big win for the good guys tonight.  5 - 1.

I will make the same prediction that I have for the first two games ... Grigorenko scores a beaut of a first NHL goal.

Alright then, I confess. It is my intention to commandeer one of these seats, pick up a crew in Buffalo and raid, pillage, plunder, and otherwise pilfer my weaselly black guts out.

I expect a split.  I don't think Carolina is that bad, and I don't think the Sabres are that good.  Just like the Boston/Rangers game yesterday.  0-2 Rangers beat the 2-0 Bruins.

Gerbe skating w/ Grigorenko & Ott again today; Hecht between Scott & Kaleta.

As expected, #42 is back in the lineup.

@kwsnow
No changes to top 2 lines or D-pairs (10/52, 57-24, 44-3). #Sabres

Is Gerbe on the game day roster / lineup for tonights game?  It looks like you added to the *As expected ...* part.

If so, Ellis sits this one out, IMO.

No room for #37, has to be Rochester bound along with a trade of one of the D once #8 and #23 return to full health.

Is this Carolinas Home Opener? If so, odds are this season Buffalo will win this one, only 12 of 28 teams have won their home openers
