I can't speak for anyone else but for me...hockey is fun again! I know I shouldn't say that out loud but it seemed necessary to me at this moment. It looks like the Sabres will go with the same lineup they used last night, the scratches are expected to be Ales Kotalik, Tim Connolly, Andrew Peters and Nathan Paetsch. The only change the Sabres are expected to make is to start Patrick Lalime in net. It makes sense considering the Sabres are playing their third game in four nights.
