Sabres at Hurricanes preview: Blizzard buddies

USA TODAY Sports

Two teams linked more by weather than their play on the ice go at it for the last time this season.

Game #66

Buffalo Sabres (19-38-8) at Carolina Hurricanes (28-28-9)
TV - MSG, Bell TV, FS-CR | Radio - WGR 550-AM
SBNation Hurricanes Blog - Canes Country

Three Questions


1. What will Buffalo's effort look like tonight? Coach Ted Nolan was so displeased with the team's effort during yesterday's practice that he stopped after ten minutes and turned the whole thing into one giant bag skate. The players tried to sort thing out among themselves once Nolan left the ice, but will it produce results for the last place team?

2. Who will keep their scoring streak alive, Drew Stafford or Alexander Semin? Stafford has 14 pojnts in 15 games, while Semin has six in his last five.

3. Will Ville Leino ever score again? The watch continues.
