Two Questions

1. What impact will Will Carrier have in his NHL debut?

The Sabres replaced Justin Bailey with Will Carrier, who will make his NHL debut tonight. He’s scored three goals and an assist in seven games with Rochester this season.

2. Can the Sabres find their offense?

Buffalo was only able to score once in its last game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Ottawa is coming off a shutout victory against Vancouver, backed by recently acquired goalie Mike Condon. Craig Anderson was on leave due to his wife’s cancer, but it looks like he’s starting tonight.
