Sabres vs. Flyers preview: How many shots tonight?

New, comments

Can the Sabres carry their offensive frenzy from yesterday into tonight's game against the Flyers?

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Game #11

Philadelphia Flyers (4-3-2)

Puck Drop: 7:00 pm EST | First Niagara Center | Buffalo, NY
TV: MSG, Bell, Root | Radio: WGR 550

Two Questions

1. Can the Sabres continue their Corsi dominance?

The formerly lowly Sabres poured 53 shots on net yesterday, and have been consistently entertaining and fun to watch, even in losses (Montreal aside.) Can they keep their foot on the gas tonight? Or will we see them fade off of a back-to-back?

2. How will Linus Ullmark look in his second start?

The Swedish prospect had an okay debut, looking a bit shaky here and there but also making some nice saves. Will  he earn his first NHL win tonight by outdeuling former Sabres great Michal Neuvirth?
