Tonight is another one of those trap games at home, the type of game the Sabres should win but usually don't. They have struggled at home all season against teams that are trailing them in the standings. This will be the third meeting between the teams this season and the Islanders beat the Sabres 4-2 at HBC Arena in November.

It looks like Buffalo native Tim Kennedy will make his NHL debut this evening against the NY Islanders. There was no official announcement as to who would not be in the lineup.
