Game Notes

  • I believe somebody said this in the comments the other day but the Sabres no longer have a big games they have MUST WIN games and tonight is a MUST WIN game.
  • A quick glance ab ove will show that the Sabres have not fared well against Ottawa this season. They have one win and one shootout loss in five tries.
  • Mikael Tellqvist is expected to make his first start since being acquired by the Sabres at the trade deadline. Tellqvist has only one appearance with Buffalo when he replaced Patrick Lalime against the Flyers last Tuesday.
  • Derek Roy continues to lead the Sabres in scoring after scoring a goal and an assist against Atlanta on Saturday.
  • I probably will not be in the game thread tonight but will cach the game later tonight on tape delay...Man I love me some DVR!
