Game Day Preview: New Jersey Devils vs. Buffalo Sabres

New, comments

The Buffalo Sabres keep their playoff hopes alive for another night after their win in overtime over the Capitals last night.  The road ahead does not get easier though as the Sabres head back to Buffalo to face the Devils and Martin Brodeur. 

The Sabres are four points behind the Rangers who are playing the Bruins at the moment.  They are two points behind the Panthers who play the Penguins tomorrow.

The Sabres played what was probably their best game of the season last night, being able to capitalize on their opponents mistakes in overtime.  Sergei Federov turned over the puck to Tim Connolly who fed Pominville for the game winner.  Ryan Miller played an alright game in net, allowing 4 goals on 37 shots. 

The Devils played last night as well, beating the Lightning 5-4 in overtime.  Martin Brodeur was supposed to get the night off last night with the Devils planning a ceremony for Brodeur before the game.  That lasted a total of 21 minutes when Kevin Weekes went down with a injured knee.  Scott Clemmensen will serve as the backup to Brodeur tonight. Patrick Elias will miss tonight's game as well for the Devils.

Game time is 7:00 pm at HSBC Arena.
