Um....


Here's what you need to know.

With a win tonight, the Sabres will have won the season series between the teams for the second consecutive year. A win would also give the Sabres wins in three consecutive home games against the Flyers for the first time since Oct. 17, 2006 to Dec. 21, 2007.

Eichel enters tonight's game on a career-best 10-game point streak (3+10). It's the longest active streak in the NHL and the longest by a Sabre since Tim Connolly tallied points in 16 straight from Dec. 23, 2009 to Jan. 25, 2010.
In the time since his Nov. 29 return from an injury that sidelined him for 21 games, Eichel is tied for 10th among all NHL skaters with 42 points (16+26) and leads the league with 185 shots on goal.

Eichel's .93 points per game this season rank him 14th among all players with at least 20 games played this season.

Kane has 18 points (11+7) in his last 20 games, including nine goals in his last 13.

Risto has a point in 11 of his last 16 games (1+10).

O'Reilly has recorded six points (3+3) during his current four-game point streak.

(That is all from the Game Notes, courtesy of our friends at @SabresPR.)

I'll emphasize that the game is on NBCSN, and puckdrop not until 7:30pm.  Woof.

With all of those stats it's amazing we've won only 1 of our last 7 games.....

Nice balance in those lines, considering DLo has to play somewhere.

 

D pairings..... I which we had more speed on the third pair, but then again hopefully being the third pair, those two won't see too much ice time.

Meh, I am not sure spreading your too weakest physical players, Moulson and Ennis across 2 lines is better than relegating them to the 4th line for reduced minutes.

 

For shaugts and giggles might actually suggest they try something different for the bottom 2 lines like

 

Girgensons-Rodrigues-Bailey

Deslauriers-Ennis-Moulson  

 

I think that 3rd line would have a lot of speed and grit and Ennis did have one of his better seasons back in the day when he was at center for awhile.

 

Spoiler role is still something fun to do especially if were spoiling Philly's chances.   Lets go Buffalo,

Seeing the Flyers jersey always gets my blood boiling.

 

I would love to see Eichel get his first hat trick before the season's over. Why not tonight?

 

Let's Go Buffalo!

After reading your post, I just thought about it, so yes that's possible.
It's highly unlikely the Sabres will win 5 or more in a row in the real world however.
If not for your post this thought would not have entered my mind since it seems like they haven't won 5 in a row since Donnie Edwards was in net although it probably hasn't been that long.

Very hard to imagine.  This is crunch time and we've won 1 of our last 7 games.  With three of them coming against 2 of the worst teams in the league.

Sabres are what... 27-27-12?   So this is a game they win, they might even win the next game, and then lose 2 in row.

 

I'm looking for a big game tonight from O'Reilly.

I was going to ask what Girgensons did to get put in the doghouse, but there's always going to be two players that look "in the doghouse" with a roster like that...

 

If D-Lo comes anywhere near the ice at KBC next year I'm going to vomit.

Just learned that my youngest is going to sit in a box with a friend from his soccer team. It's a little insane to send a kid his age to a 7:30 game on a school night - but fuggit.

 

I will admonish him not to be a Chet.

 

He's fired up - he's got his Eichel jersey-shirt ready to go. Last game we went to was St. Louis, and Eichel made at least two plays that had us standing up to see how it'd finish. The kid joked on the way home from that game that it was like Eichel's super power (the power to raise butts from seats). He told me just now that he's looking forward to seeing #15  use his super power.
