Final Score

I have been sick as a dog all day and cannot even bring myself to write a full scale open thread. I do plan on watching the game and I'll even be in the open thread.

Some things you may not know but should

  • Maybe I'm just an idiot but I thought Chris Butler has been outstanding on the blue line but for some reason he will be in the Press Box while Teppo Numminen will be back on the ice.
  • Tim Connolly will no longer be playing on the fourth line. Personally I don't think he should have ever been playing on the fourth line.
  • Patrick Lalime will be making his first start since December 26 against the Washington Capitals.
  • The Sabres have won four of their last five games.
  • Don't forget your SPG Picks.
