A GDT from NS, with love.  My first one.

 

Let's hope for a good game and just beat these guys.  Not sure about TV.

 

GO SABRES!!

Start of 5 games in 7 days...the season can turn up or slide into oblivion this week. 

 

So goalie rotation of Lehner (@NJ  6th), Nilsson (SJ 7th), Lehner (Anaheim 9th), Lehner (@Tor 11th), Nilsson (Van 12th)? 

I hope DD rides the hot goalie but doesn't force Lehner into back-to-back's when Nilsson has proven so capable. Especially with 4 games in 7 days the following week as well.

5 games where we need to come away with at the very least 7 points.

I watched the highlights last night to cheer me up, and damn, you're right. That's one of those plays that only a few players attempt but seems to work, the goalie starts to move with the player to "stay square" the top corner opens up. It must be incredibly hard to hit that shot otherwise more players would do it.

Especially need regulation wins vs. NJ and Toronto. 

Beat Vancouver and get 1 out of 4 points vs. Anaheim and SJ combined and it's a decent week.

Yay.. back to hockey.  I get a small reprieve around the office until March when everyone starts blathering on about NCAA basketball.

 

Go Sabres.

This is the yahoo Live game of the day...

 

http://sports.yahoo....nhl/live-video/

 

Sabres coming off a convincing home win to get to 21-20-10, this is a game they typically lose, and Schneider is coming off a 32 save 5-1 W at Columbus.. he's heating up.... so... I don't like our chances.

Well, most coaches are gonna play the hot hand. Even Bylsma couldn't be that stupid to rest Lehner after a 37 save shutout, could he?    

The only pro coach dumb enough to do something like that that would be Yankees' Joe Girardi -  but he's baseball - no worries.  lol

Well........... they've got a back-to-back here: @NJ tonight, and SJS tomorrow.  And as mentioned upthread, lots of games coming up (Thurs, and another back-to-back Sat and Sun).

 

So it seems possible that Nilsson gets either tonight or tomorrow.  Lehner still seems to be the obvious choice for tonight, though.

Losing them to NJ is more costly than SJ. I play Lehner then Nilsson

Odd. Did Nilsson play against SJ last time? You would think you would want your started up against the better team. Or maybe DD is just riding the hot hand

As a recovering Catholic, I have a mental picture of Lehner kneeling at the altar while the bishop says a blessing over him and sprinkles him with holy water.
