Two Questions

1. How many shots on goal will the Sabres get tonight?

Buffalo tied a franchise low on Sunday with just 10 shots, and only five of those came in the final two periods when they were down a goal. That's a pathetic number for a team of ten year olds let alone a professional hockey team, so how will they respond to the embarrassment tonight?

2. Can Marcus Foligno look as good tonight as he did in Buffalo's last game?

Coming back from injury, Foligno had a goal and assist against the Islanders on Sunday, but consistency has been an issue for him. Can the still-young winger keep up his effort tonight?

Projected BUF lines

Stewart - Girgensons - Ennis
Moulson - Mitchell - Gionta
