The Buffalo Sabres season continued its up-and-down trajectory (mostly down) in the last fortnight. In fact, the last four games have been marked with an offensive explosion, with at least one team scoring half-a-dozen goals in each of those games. If you've been picking the 'Under' for goals over/under, it might be time to revisit your strategy.

Patrick Topor was the clear winner of Part Three, with kitaman27 coming in second two points behind. Salient's strategy didn't pay off this time around, but he's still clinging on to the overall lead.

So the overall top three now looks like this (Leaderboard) -

1 - Salient (52 pts)

2 - Patrick Topor & kitaman27 (50 pts)

3 - wolfdoctor (48 pts)

Round Four of THE TANK WARS starts today, marking the six games coming up in the next fortnight. Remember, you don't need cheat sheets, stats, pencils, late night drafts or in fact, little to no knowledge of the Buffalo Sabres either to play the Tank Wars. All you have to do is pick what you think the Sabres performances in the following categories -

1) winning team [W] (including a shootout winner) = B (Buffalo) or O (Other)
2) goals [G] over/under in each game (O/U of 5.5 goals) = O (Over) or U (Under)
3) powerplay goals [PPG] over/under in each game (O/U of 1.5 goals) = O or U
4) penalty minutes [PIM] over/under in each game (O/U of 25 PIM) = O or U

Here's the Sabres schedule - there'll be some teams we see for the first time this season coming up too.
