Game Notes
  • This will be a homecoming for Patrick Kane and will be an opportunity to play against his childhood rival, Tim Kennedy. It will be fun to watch these two players go at it tonight.
  • Marian Hossa is currently on a four game point streak with a goal and four assists.
  • The key for the Sabres will be to stay out of the penalty box tonight. The Sabres are a plus-9 while 5-on-5 and the Hawks are only a plus-7. The Hawks special teams have been the difference for them all season.
  • The Sabres have not won a game that was started by a goalie other than Ryan Miller...Patrick Lalime will start in goal for the Sabres tonight.
