I had to get this up early because I will be at work during the game.  I will be watching the game in tape delay later on in the evening so hopefully it will be a good game.  I hope everyone is able to enjoy it and I hope that I can enjoy it later on.

The Sabres have earned at least one point in every game in February and they hope to continue that trend at the Madison Square Garden in New York.  Buffalo is currently one point ahead of the Rangers in the standings and they also have two games in hand.  The Sabres can create some distance between themselves and the Rangers with a regulation win.    It will be the second time this season that ex-Sabre Chris Drury will play against his old team.  After a really slow start to the season Drury has picked up his game a little bit although the Rangers continue to be an inconsistent team.
