The saying "biggest game of the year" gets thrown around way too much but tonight is the real deal.  The Sabres have 71 points, three behind the Flyers for the eighth and final playoff spot.  A loss tonight would put Buffalo five points behind with only 15 games left to play.

I will be at work for the game so I will be watching it in tape delay.  I have the urge to live blog the game so check back tomorrow for my live blog.  I hope everyone will join in tonight in my absence.  I missed the game Sunday and we had zero comments.  I love hearing what people have to say about the game.

If you haven't registered for a free account yet please do so now and join us for some riveting conversation about the game.

{Update 11:57 am}  Andrej Sekera was called up from Rochester and Dmitri Kalinin is in the dog house.  I think Kalinin sits but we'll wait and see.
