Must lose.  We're only 3 points out of 29th place, we have four games in hand, and Edmonton's lost three straight.

The Jackets played last night and I assume they'll be playing their back-up goalie tonight.

This one should be a layup for the Sabres.

EDIT: I stand corrected. Just saw on Twitter that Bobrovsky is starting tonight. Still guessing CBJ doesn't take us seriously and we come away with 2 points.

I'm not too worried, even if we win.  We have two aces up our sleeve.  If we trade Miller and/or Moulson, we're going to be ###### bad.

well, since the Sabres team IS the doghouse, I would say yes, he is still in it.

Omark is not dressing tonight.  Nolan liked the effort against the Leaves and the only change he's making is Foligno for D'Agostini (injured).

I root for wins because they're fun and I like watching our young players have success (Myers, Hodgson, Pysyk, Girgensons).

If they lose, the tank then comforts me. :blush:
