Two Questions

1. Which Gionta brother will win the night?

Brian Gionta will face his brother Stephen Gionta, who's returning from injury tonight. In the battle of the Giontas, who will emerge victorious?

2. How many shots total will be taken in tonight's game?

The Sabres and Devils are the 29th and 30th place teams in the NHL in shots for, and it's not very close. I'm putting the over/under for total shots in tonight's game at 45.

Projected BUF lines

Stewart - Girgensons - Ennis
Moulson - Mitchell - Gionta
Foligno - Flynn - Deslauriers
Larsson - Ellis - Hodgson

Benoit - Bogosian
Zadorov - Ristolainen
Weber - Meszaros

Goal: Michal Neuvirth
