Game Notes

  • Ex-Sabre Danny Briere is questionable out for the game tonight. How many games has he played since he left. For all the Connolly jokes we hear, why don't we hear more about Briere?
    Max Afinogenov is expected back in the lineup tonight after taking a hard hit on Friday night against the Coyotes.
  • The Sabres are currently in 10th place in the Eastern Conference but have games in hand on the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers.
  • Patrick Lalime is expected to start in goal for the Sabres tonight after allowing six goals against Ottawa on Saturday.
    Sabres have lost to the Flyers twice this season and have been outscored 9-3 in the two games.
  • I won't be in the game thread tonight but feel free to chat it up.
