[open thread] Sabres @ Coyotes

Time: 4:00 TV: MSG Radio: WGR55

I figured I would get the thread up early because of the early start time.  I'll try to get here by the opening faceoff if possible.  I'm not a fan of 4PM start but I don't make the schedule.  The Sabres have two games before the all star break and they need to build some momentum.  Jocelyn Thibault is expected to start and Jaro Spacek may be back in the lineup.
