[open thread] Buffalo Sabres @ Toronto Maple Leafs

       vs        

7:30PM TV:MSG Radio:WGR55

What could I possibly say about tonights game against the Leafs?  It is a huge game, but every game is huge when you are tied in 8th place.  Thomas Vanek is ridiculously hot lately and will try to stay hot tonight.  The key is that he needs some of that to rub off on his teammates who have all been struggling to find the net.  I don't have a whole lot more for you today so check out the NHL preview and a view from the other side.
