What to Watch
1. A Little Late
Tonight’s game is projected to begin around 7:50 pm. The Senators are honoring alum Chris Phillips ahead of the game, so Sabres fans have a little extra time to settle down in front of their TVs with a snack and a cold one.
2. Where Do We Go From Here?
Heading into tonight’s game, the Sabres actually haven’t looked half-bad lately. They’re on something of a winning streak and with a slight, slight chance of playoff hopes still alive, they will need to pull out strong efforts in the weeks ahead.
3. Let’s Have Some Fun
Games between the Sabres and Senators are always entertaining. Whether you get a bunch of goals, some incredible saves (Hutton will start his fourth straight game) or a brawl, it’s never a dull moment between these two teams. Let’s see what tonight brings. Maybe Curtis Lazar will have a hat trick against his former team. Hey, you never know...
