Three Questions

1. Will Brian Gionta be able to score against his old team?

With Josh Gorges out of the lineup, Gionta will get all the attention tonight when it comes to former Habs. He wasn't able to score in his first game against his old team. Will he find the net tonight?

2. How will Tyler Myers look in his first game back from injury?

Myers was a late scratch in the Sabres last game against Winnipeg with what the Sabres called a "lower-body injury." He's ready to go tonight, we'll see if anything looks off.

3. Will the Sabres be able to get back to their winning ways?

Well that's a strange sentence to type this season. Buffalo was riding a three game winning streak and looking much better before losing their last game to Winnipeg. Can they win a fourth game out of five?

Moulson - Girgensons - Ennis
