Season Series 1-1-0

There isn't much for me to add to what coolman856 said in his post earlier. If you are a regular reader of Die by the Blade you are aware that I have a strong dislike for the Sens.

This is another one of those trap games for the Sabres. They are playing against a team they should beat but it comes one night after a gutsy win over a team they are chasing in the standings.

Starting Goalies

Lindy Ruff is playing his starting goalie close to the vest. If I had to guess I would say it will be Lalime but Miller has been hot. I'll post stats for both Goalies.
