Three Questions

1. How will the Sabres respond to their disappointing effort last game?

A 4-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs is a pretty sad result for the Sabres, who will look to rebound against a Carolina team barely clinging to their playoff hopes.

2. Will Eichel show any ill effects from his bout with food poisoning?

Let's be real, the only reason to watch these last handful of games is to get your fill of Eichel, Reinhart, Ristolainen, Fasching, and the rest of the youngsters before we go away for the summer. So let's hope Jack comes back at 100%.

3. Is Hudson Fasching here yet?

Is he, huh, huh, is he?
