I am aware that Chris Neil does not play for the Panthers. I'm not sure why he is on there.

Game Notes

  • If the Sabres have any chance of making the playoffs, this is a MUST WIN!
  • Max Afinogenov, Tim Connolly and Jochen Hecht all missed practice on Wednesday with the flu.
  • I won't be in the game thread because I'll be in attendance at the game but I will update via the twitter box on the right hand side.
