I'm sorry this is going up a little late today.  It is a game day so let me slide a little bit.  I'm trying to give you a little perspective on the game tonight before Zach gets the preview up this afternoon.

Some prospects info and a nice scrap that includes Sabres prospect Marcus Foligno.

Sabres Edge: Peterson and Parkinson's
Peterson was never a player that would garner the headlines but he was someone that would go to battle for his teammates whenever it was necessary. I don't remember too much about Peterson because I was young when he played in Buffalo but I do remember him being on the team which is saying something.
