What to Watch For

1. Guhle get into the lineup?

The Sabres played well against the Devils last night with one of their best players on the roster not playing in last night’s game. We’ll see if smooth-skating Brendan Guhle makes his his 2018 Prospects Challenge debut tonight and who will come out of the lineup.

2. Building off a strong win

It’ll be interesting to see how the Sabres respond to last night’s performance when they take on a Bruins roster that showcases some big name prospects. While the offense was on point for the Sabres last night, they had some defensive zone lapses that allowed the Devils to respond quickly.

3. Bruins Roster

As I mentioned the Bruins will ice a lineup that will feature some their bigger prospects. Players such as Ryan Donato, Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson, Uhro Vaakanainen, and Zach Senyshyn.
